Grönhögen Golf Links Country Club is one of the top golf courses in the region and is located in a small town called Grönhögen, very close to the city of Kalmar, in the municipality of Mörbylånga in the south of Sweden.

Grönhögen is found next to the second largest island in Sweden called Öland, which is connected to the mainland through a bridge which extends to the Kalmar Strait. The club is situated just in front of the coast where golfers can admire beautiful views of the Baltic Sea.

Initially, the links course was built with only three holes in 1999, but due to a high demand from golfers, it was quickly expanded to an 18-hole course by the renowned Swedish golf pro Pierre Fulk.

Mr Fulk has won the European Tour three times and has played in major international championships, but in 2007 he retired in order to focus more on golf course design.

In 2004, after Fulk’s modifications, several major tournaments were hosted on the 18-hole course.

One of the top golf courses in the area, Grönhögen Golf Links Country Club comprises of:

  • 18 brilliant holes
  • A par of 72
  • A distance of 5802 metres from the yellow tees.

The track is situated on the seaside of the Baltic Sea, which brings different features to the course that make it so unique. For instance, the wind is an important factor that should be taken into account before you attempt your golf shots, along with the rare shape of the terrain.

A characteristic of this course is how the difficulty increases gradually, mainly due to the fact that the first nine holes are 1,000 yards shorter than the final nine holes. Additionally, the greens are quite large and are lightning quick.

With regards to the clubhouse’s facilities, there is a restaurant that serves delicious meals, a bar, a driving range for those who wish to improve their golf swings, and a practise area. The staff at the clubhouse also organize excursions including biking and hiking in the Green Mounds.

Moreover, there is a golf store where you can rent clubs, trollies, buggies, or even buy some of the best golf clubs on the market today.

If you're thinking of staying for a few days in order to explore the island, there is a large number of different accomodation options located in the city of Degerhamn. Conversely, if you are looking for something more traditional and closer to the club, then Grönhögen is maybe a better option.
