THE ELITE HOTEL PLAZA
The Elite Plaza Hotel Malmo is centrally located at Gustav Adolfs torg, surrounded by restaurants and shops. The property was built in the late 1890s and is also known under the nickname ‘The Riviera’ due to the white facade being reminiscent of the Mediterranean. The hotel offers 116 tastefully furnished rooms with air conditioning which ensures that the room temperature is pleasant all year round. The hotel is also equipped with a gym and a very pleasant relaxation area. Next door is the hotel’s popular pub, The Bishops Arms. And within a stroll of the hotel is Malmo’s main pedestrian street.
THE GOLF COURSES
Ljunghusens Golf Club
Ljunghusens Golf Club is one of the oldest golf clubs in Sweden. The club was founded in 1932 and in 1965 became the first in the Country to have 27 holes. The course is one of the few true links course in Sweden. The course borders a large nature protected marshland and is located in a nature reserve just a few meters from the Baltic Sea with white sand beaches.
PGA Sweden National
The Links Course at PGA of Sweden National golf course in the province of Skåne is a true links course with large undulating greens and an army of small bunkers to test our game. A stream runs through seven of the holes so we have to have our wits about us when we play this championship course.
Falsterbo Golf Club
Founded in 1909, Falsterbo Golf Club is the third oldest Golf Club in Sweden and the course is constantly ranked as one of the top courses in Sweden and among the Top 50 courses on the European continent. The first 9 hole course was laid out, on the links not very far from the present location, in 1910 by Robert Turnbull, professional at Copenhagen Golf Club. In 1912 a new nine-hole course was designed in the present area, around the lighthouse. The present 18 holes, a well-bunkered traditional links course, designed by the local medical doctor Gunnar Bauer, were inaugurated in 1930. The two holes remaining from the original 1912 course are the 7th and the 14th. Apart from a total renovation of all the green areas during 1996-2001, designed by Peter Nordwall and Peter Chamberlain, the course layout remains practically the same.
Bokskogen Golf Club – Old Course
Venue for the 2003 Junior Solheim Cup, Bokskogen Golf Club has hosted many amateur and professional tournaments including SEO and PLM Open on the European Tour which were the forerunners of what we know today as Scandinavian Masters. The Old Course has indeed proved a challenge for many well known European and US Tour players. The Old Course with its generous fairways, water hazards and large immaculate putting surfaces, challenges club players and professionals alike. Some of the par fours offer a magnificent test of length and strategy while the Par 3 holes, especially the second, test both nerve and skill.
Barseback Golf & Country Club – Masters Course
The Masters Course at the Barsebäck Golf & Country Club on Sweden’s south west coast has hosted 13 European Tour events and the Solheim Cup in 2003. It is one very good golf course and ranks as one of the best in Europe. Even from the yellow tees this par 73 plays long. And with its Penn A4 greens surrounded by majestic pines in the woodlands part of the course, along with holes that play along the Öresund Strait, it will challenge every part of our game. The signature holes are the 8th and the 17th. The parkland and seaside terrain make for a wonderful layout and the course is, as we would expect, beautifully maintained.

For the late summer, early autumn season this year, we want to tempt you with some new and not altogether obvious locations for a golf week! And so we head to Malmo in Sweden! Located in the gorgeous province of Skane in southern Sweden, Malmo is part of the expanding Oresund region and is joined to Copenhagen in Denmark by the mighty, arching Oresund Bridge. Malmo is a small, friendly city with a good choice of cultural attractions, including the new Moderna Museet Malmo. With a plethora of quality restaurants, bistros and great cafes, Malmo is a wonderful cultural centre. And the golf is not bad either! We will play five quite unique courses, which I am sure will all be experiences that live long in the memory. We will also explore the City on our day off and come to appreciate life in this wonderful Nordic country. Please note that you will need to fly into Copenhagen Airport, and not Malmo Airport. The transfer time from Copenhagen to Malmo is just 20 minutes.
