Courses:

Horsens Golf Club

Based in Hansted Adal, the club has been placed carefully in beautiful nature surroundings with many visible, beautiful lakes and streams making this a challenge. The course is on a very large plot where most holes are played without any visual contact with surrounding holes. It is the longest course in Denmark and includes several forest holes.

Juelsminde Golf Club

The club celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. The course is situated in a beautiful location close to the sea and surrounding forests. From several of the holes you can enjoy the beautiful views of Kattegat, including the islands of Endelave and Samso on the horizon. The ground is hilly and there are lakes on five of the holes. The first 9 holes are characterised by fairly small fairways where precision is vital.

Skanderborg Golf Club

Renowned for being one of the best in Denmark, this is also the only club you can sail to! The course is placed in an area of outstanding beauty with direct access to Skanderborg Lake. The course is relatively short but demands both precision and stamina.
