This is a top golf destination: Näset, a Swedish peninsula close to Malmö, is home of three of Sweden’s top golf courses: Ljunghusen, an 18-hole heather course and a short 9-hole links – top golf and very friendly staff. Then Falsterbo, a stunning links course with holes 16, 17 and 18 at the Southern tip of the peninsula and incredibly snotty staff who mimic the behaviour of some (the locals tell me Stockholmian summer) members, where apparently purple haired ladies simply tee off without bothering to secure a tee-off time. Smashing. The course is beautiful, though. And eventually Flommen, founded by Falsterbo caddies almost 80 years ago: a gem of a course with links character and loads and loads of water. Easy to play if there is no wind, but that rarely is the case. On my round yesterday were occasions where we were pleased that the approach shot had found the green, just to see it roll over the green into the water. It is a beauty of a golf course:

Hole 8 - Tee: typical Swedish bath huts, where the locals store their beach stuff during summer, line the fairway of quite a few holes at Flommen. You cannot see this on the picture, but one aims at the Falsterbo lighthouse when teeing off. A dream.
