The Ljunghusen Golf Club sits exposed out on a little spit of land jutting into the Baltic Sea, on the Falsterbo Peninsula.
It's nearly hidden in a quaint little fishing village, past a quiet, shady neighborhood. Some people describe Ljunghusen as a true links golf course, while others say Falsterbo, its neighbor to the west, is the only true links golf course in Sweden.
If Ljunghusen isn't a true links course, it certainly looks the part: built on a foundation of sand, it is flat, virtually tree-less, open to the elements off the nearby sea and with an abundance of heather. Parts of the course look straight out of Ireland. The flatness of the terrain makes for some great views, from nearly any vantage point.
Your main obstacles here are the wind and the heather - in fact, Ljunghusen means "heather house." But Ljunghusen also has what Europeans describe as a "moorland" flavor.
It's a very peaceful scene, with the course enclosed within a nature preserve and bordering an area of protected marshland. Several of the holes are close to the beaches of the Baltic coast.
The Douglas Brasier design has made Golf Digest's top-100 list in Europe and is regularly ranked among Sweden's top-5. Ljunghusen has hosted some big tournaments, like the European Men's Team Championship.
