Halmstad Golf Club

As one of the oldest and most prestigious golf clubs in Sweden, Halmstad Golfklubb is proud to present two outstanding 18-hole golf courses and a welcoming clubhouse with an excellent restaurant.


A visit to Halmstad Golfklubb is a must for any avid golfer sampling the best that Sweden has to offer. Since its inception in 1930, the golf club has kept aiming higher and higher, and today offers a golf experience second to none.

The North Course has a rich history of tournaments, perhaps most notably the Solheim Cup which was played here in 2007, and is one of the most well-known and prestigious courses in the country. As the holes are well spaced with tall trees on both sides, you rarely see players on any of the other holes and almost feel as if you have this gem of a golf course to yourself.

On the South Course, many feel that it is a little tight from the tee, but the intricate design offers just rewards for players who dare take the risk and attack the slightly shorter holes. Many have played both courses in a day, and more than a few have come to see the South Course as their favourite.

After your round you can relax on the large terrace overlooking the first and last holes of both courses, sampling some of the delightful meals on offer. The restaurant has several times been awarded the title "Best Golf Restaurant in Sweden", and with good reason.

Famous Hotel Tylösand, with its award winning spa is within walking distance. In the long summer evenings, a stroll along the long, sandy beach is an excellent way to finish the day. Or perhaps start the day before your next round of golf at Halmstad Golfklubb.



As the club is celebrating its centenary in less than a decade, there is much to be proud of and the history is perhaps one of the most important ones.

Halmstad Golfklubb was founded in 1930, and the first members started playing on a provisional course laid out on the grounds of the Royal Infantry Regiment in the city. In 1935, the construction of an 18-hole course began in Tylösand, some 10 kilometres west of the city centre.

The club house was designed by Swedish architect legend Hakon Ahlberg, and the course was designed by Rafael Sundblom, the father of Swedish golf course architecture. It was given the seal of approval from the Swedish Golf Federation in May of 1938 and was officially opened for play in September of the same year. The work had been done in no small part by hand, as jobs were scarce after the great depression and clearing the ground for golf courses was an excellent way to put mainly young men to work.

In 1963, the golf club was granted permission to add nine more holes, designed by Nils Sköld. In May of 1967, the new course, including nine of the holes from the original course, was opened for play, generally the same course as what is today called the North Course.

In 1975, construction on another nine holes began, completing the 36 hole facility. These new holes were designed by British golf course architect Frank Pennink and in May of 1979 the South Course was opened for play. Since then, both courses have been carefully maintained, improved and updated.

The North Course

The North Course is a magnificent design, inspiring and demanding in equal measures. A golf experience and a nature experience in one. The tangy sea air mixes with the lovely pine scent as you walk the long wooded corridors undisturbed by other players.

This is the longer of the two courses, 6,317 metres (6,908 yards) from the black tee (championship tee), but also with more generously wide fairways and gently undulating greens where it is generally wise to read a little less break than you think.

Several amateur and professional tournaments have been played on the North Course, with perhaps Solheim Cup in 2007 as the most prestigious one. The course is always ranked very near the top of all golf courses in Sweden, and rightly so. Two of the holes, 12 and 16, are mentioned among the absolute best in Sweden.

The course plays out and back, with a halfway house at the far end, serving light snacks.

The South Course

The term "hidden gem" is overused, but with such a renowned sibling, the South Course is often overlooked, despite being many of the members' favourite of the two courses. The beautiful layout rivals the scenic nature, and there is even a glimpse of the sea on hole 12.

Deceptively short on paper, 5,824 metres (6,369 yards) from the white tee, the course plays longer for many as it is narrower and the driver isn't always the right choice from the tee. As a true risk and reward challenge, the decision is up to the player on whether to lay back or try to get as close as possible to the trickier greens.

In contrast to the North Course, the South Course has two loops of nine holes, both starting and finishing next to the Club House and with a pleasant halfway house serving snacks and refreshments.

The award winning restaurant has a terrace with a magnificent view over the first and last holes of both courses and the large putting green next to the halfway house.

The pleasant atmosphere and excellent service is only rivalled by the delightful meals on offer.

Club house

In the light and airy club house, our friendly and service-minded staff welcomes guests as they arrive.

Next to reception is a large and well-stocked shop with everything from clubs and shoes to clothing and accessories. There are spacious changing rooms with lockers, sauna, and showers, and also a modest gym.

For business meetings, Halmstad Golfklubb has meeting rooms on the top floor, equipped to cater for every need. 

Practice facilities

The large driving range, 300 metres long, has mats and grass tees on both sides. The high quality Titleist balls are provided through range machines on either side.

There are several large putting greens and short game practice areas, both next to the club house and on both sides of the range. At the back of the range there is also an outside gym.

The PGA professionals at the club offer instruction in all parts of the game. There is a large studio equipped with a Trackman launch monitor, and several bays with protection from the elements.


Surrounding the golf club is the small locality Tylösand, which is also sometimes what the golf club is called colloquially. In addition to the golf courses, Tylösand is most famous for its 7 kilometres long, sandy beach and the hotel of the same name, with Roxette star Per Gessle as one of the owners.

There are several other forms of accommodation in the vicinity, from hotels to cabins and camping. Tylösand also has very good restaurants offering various types of food, where some, like Salt and Bettans Bar, also give you a view of the setting sun over the sea.
