A Golf Trip
This trip offers a lot of fine golf courses close to our Countryside Hotels. After a nice round of golf, you can soften up those sore muscles in a bubble bath or with a massage. There will be time for some wine or apple tasting, traditional Swedish dishes or a French gourmet dinner. End the day in a comfortable bed in our wonderful hotels and wake up to a new day with new golf courses to explore.
Idala Gård, Trelleborg
Here at the southern tip of Sweden in Skåne County, with a very typical flat landscape, we are about to experience a small piece of Italy. Idala Gård cooperates with four different golf course; Trelleborg GK , Tegelberga, Söderslätt and Vellinge. You can book a Golf and Gourmet Package. We get to savour the lovely Italian cuisine every evening. We can also buy something from the farm or the wine shop.

Halltorp Gästgiveri is located in the middle of a beautiful island called Öland. The rooms are cosy, the lounges are comfortable with five fire places and there is a nice wellness centre that offers spa treatments. There are seven golf courses on Öland. The closest one to our hotel (just 1 km) is Ekerum Golf Club. Halltorp Restaurant is famous for well-cooked food with first class ingredients.

(2h 45 min, 188km).
Möckelsnäs Manor is located at Lake Möckeln with a lush deciduous forest close by. The golf package includes the green fee at Älmhult Golf Club, a lovely room for the night, a three-course dinner, and breakfast. If you would like, you can also book a four-course dinner and whiskey tasting. The rooms are pleasant with extra comfortable, thick mattresses. And if you want to skip golfing for a day, we recommend a visit to the orangery and Carl von Linné Study Centre or Råshult Park.
Möcklenäs Manor, Diö – Villa Gransholm, Gemla
(45 min, 48 km).
Next we find Villa Gransholm right in between the cities of Växjö and Alvesta. It is a small hotel with only 13 rooms, which ensures you a personal experience. This villa used to be the home of the manager at Gransholm Mill. The beautiful lounges and dining rooms have a lovely view of the park and tennis court.
Villa Gransholm offers a golf package in cooperation with Alvesta Golf Club. In addition to your stay at the hotel, the package includes the green fee, a three-course dinner, and breakfast. You can also play at Glasrikets Golf Club or Växjö Golf Club for an additional charge.
The owner of this small hotel will make sure we are well taken care of and that the food conforms to a high standard with a lot of organic, locally produced ingredients.
Villa Gransholm, Gemla – Mauritzberg Castle, Vikbolandet
(4 h 295 km).
We continue our trip north and the next stop is Mauritzberg Castle. Here we find a unique golf and sea resort. It’s a castle hotel with a 400-year-old history combined with modern comfort. Mauritzberg has its own golf course, and it’s a wonderful experience to play next to the shimmering water of the Baltic Sea and to see the castle towering above the horizon next to shady oak groves. Mauritzberg Golf Club brings variation to each hole. An extra lesson is also offered by a skilled golf teacher.
The hotel only has 16 rooms, so you may want to make a reservation well in advance. We can choose to stay in a room overlooking the sea or the calm park. When it’s time for dinner, the castle restaurant serves both gourmet-style culinary delights and traditional Swedish home-style dishes.
Mauritzberg Castle, Vikbolandet – Bjertorp Castle, Kvänum
(3h 30min, 292 km).
The final leg of our golf trip is Bjertorp Castle. It is the youngest Swedish Art Nouveau castle, built in 1914 and designed by one of the greatest architects of that time, Fredrik Boberg.
The golf course close to the hotel has been awarded the best golf course in this part of Sweden four years in a row. Only 500 metres separate the hotel from the first tee and the golf course. The golf package includes the green fee at Vara-Bjertorp Golf Club, a welcome coffee with homemade pastries, a five-course castle dinner, a stay in the hotel and a castle breakfast. You can choose to stay an additional night at a favourable rate, and this is the kind of place where you just might want to take up that offer.
Of course you can start in the north and head south or just book parts of this trip.
