In a pine forest outside of Tylösand, close to the sea, there are two eighteen hole courses. When the wind is off the sea, you can almost taste the salty air. The North Course is always mentioned as one of the nation's best in various rankings, and no visit to Halmstad Golf Club is complete without playing the shorter and narrower South Course.
The North Course layout is a major challenge for the better golfers, but also an enjoyable track for higher handicap players who rarely have to worry about losing their ball. The Solheim Cup is just one of several major championships played here, and in 2015, Halmstad will be hosting the European Team Championship where the stars of the future will be playing.
The South Course rewards precision over length, and the members at Halmstad even favour this track slightly. Guests would do well to follow in their footsteps. The two loops of nine holes both return you to the clubhouse, making the South Course an excellent choice for a late evening stroll with the setting sun painting the course with magnificent shadows.
The restaurant in the club house has twice been named Sweden's best at a golf club, and both the menu and the service is of the highest quality. There is also the popular after work get together on Friday evenings, with good food in a spirited atmosphere. The golf shop is also award winning and offers everything you may need.
