Welcome to Falsterbo Golf Club - a true links course
Welcome to Falsterbo Golf Club at the very tip of the scenic Falsterbo peninsula, about 30 minutes drive from Copenhagen Airport or from Malmö city centre in the south of Sweden.
Falsterbo Golf Club was founded in 1909 and in 2009 we celebrated its centenary. The 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 nine 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, was 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.
The course is located in a nature reserve and is frequently visited by non-golfers (especially bird watchers since the Falsterbo peninsula is the last stop for many migratory birds). This requires mutual consideration and respect.
Enjoy your visit and your game!
