Sweden has made a name for itself as a golfing nation with the success of golfing legend Annika Sörenstam and leading PGA Tour players Carl Petterson and Henrik Stenson. This is an achievement made more remarkable given Sweden’s long winters, but unsurprising given the quality of Sweden’s golf courses.

Golf in Sweden, which has more than 480 courses with 460 000 members, is booming. Here you will find championship courses such as Bro Hof Castle near Stockholm, Barsebäck GCC down south and Halmstad GC on the west coast. Given Sweden’s geography and topography, it is blessed with golfing landscapes; courses hewn from rugged coastline and others that carve through giant forests with wending streams.
