Falsterbo is one of the oldest golf clubs in Sweden, founded in 1909. The first course was a nine-hole course, west of the famous lighthouse. In 1930 the current 18-hole course was designed by Dr. Gunnar Bauer. He adapted the course to the natural surroundings in the nature reserve and bird sanctuary, following the ever-shifting terrain, and constructed a magnificent links course.

The course was redesigned by Peter Nordwall in the 1990s. The original layout was maintained, but many tees and bunkers were changed. Maybe the biggest change was the introduction of modern, undulating green areas, making them more interesting and challenging. The redesigned course was opened in 2002.

Falsterbo is very steep in tradition, and is very much a member’s club, although guests are of course welcome. Just make sure to call ahead, since it can be hard to get a tee time in the summer. One thing that you will notice is that there are no signs directing you to the next hole. Signs are just considered a distraction from the beautiful natural landscape, so you'd better study the map carefully. Seriously, it is not that hard to find the next hole if you just pay attention. And if you get lost, you can always refer to the charming Falsterbo lighthouse, always in view.

Links course

Falsterbo Golf Club has one 18 hole links course.

 

The course is a true links course, with heavy rough and large rolling fairways and greens. Maybe a bit unusual for a links course is that there are also quite a few water hazards, which are either inlets from Öresund (the sound that separates Sweden from Denmark) or natural ponds that are part of the wetland. The wetland is also popular with migrating birds, which means that at some times of the year you have to be on the lookout for birdwatchers before you hit you tee shots.

The course records are 65 for men (Olivier David and Titch Moore) and 66 for women (Caroline Hedwall).
