Best of Hisingen
There are four golf clubs on the island Hisingen. The biggest one, Albatross GK has an 18-hole course, a 9-hole pay and play course and a short course where the holes are around 100 metres long which is great for practicing your short game. Torslanda GK is also found on Hisingen with a coastal course for all levels.
In the area Lundby you’ll find Stora Lundby which, too, has an 18-hole course and a shorter one for those yet to receive a green card certificate. If you’re hungry or thirsty after the round there is a restaurant next to the final hole where you can enjoy a meal or something to drink.
The complex Sankt Jörgen Park has both a luxury hotel and a golf course – and it is the latter that we are interested in. The course has two distinct focuses. The first, older part, is of park character with strategically planned bunkers. The second one is longer and wider, which means you get to control most of the different golf shots to shoot a low score.
Seven Courses Just North of Gothenburg
There is no lack of golf courses in the area north of Gothenburg. The club Gullbringa GK is located in Southern Bohuslän and is the home course to both the major winner Helen Alfredsson and the British Open winner Henrik Stenson.
There are plenty more courses in the area. For example, you could try the spectacular par 6-hole at Kungälv-Kode GK, play one of the beautiful courses Lycke GK or Bollestads GK in between Kode and Marstrand or the parkland golf course Lunna GK.
Forest Courses in the Country Side
If you go east, you’ll come upon a few more golf clubs. As you go in to the country the courses are more prone to be of forest character. In a 25 km area east of Gothenburg, there are three clubs with a forest theme: Partille GK, in Partille, Chalmers GK in Landvetter and Lerjedalens GK in Gunnilse.
In Floda, further east, you will find Sweden’s biggest golf complex Öijareds GK. There are no less than three full-length courses in addition to a multi course for regular golf, frisbeegolf and footgolf.
A Little Bit South of Gothenburg
Around the area of Mölndal there are several courses worth playing. Closest to the city centre of all is Delsjö GK – just a couple of kilometres away. At Mölndals GK, Sisjö GK and Torrekulla GK you can challenge yourself at some beautiful courses. The golf clubs are located just a long drive away from each other, so it is possible to play two of them on the same day.
Hovås and Askim are the home for two og Gothenburg's most exciting golf courses. Hills GC has been the host for the European Tour tournament Scandinavian Invitation as late as 2018 and 2019, which indicates a high standard. The club Göteborgs GK is a well-renowned and popular course that has several holes along the seaside.
Even More South
The greater region of Kungsbacka has several impressive golf courses, amongst them is the two-fold host of the Scandinavian Masters (in the 90s) – Forsgårdens GK. And you don’t have to search for long before you’ll find more scenic courses in the area. Särö GK, Gräppås GK and Vallda GK are all great golf courses in the landscape of Halland.
Are you looking for more of a whole-family-event you can go to Myra GK, which the previous pro Johan Edfors co-started a while back. You don’t have to have any deeper knowledge of golf to play this course, but it doesn’t hurt if you do.
