A golfers’ dream in the southern parts of Sweden Eksjö Golf Club is one of Sweden’s oldest clubs. Founded in 1938 and turned into a full 18-hole course in 1975, it has since provided golfers from all over Scandinavia with prime golfing conditions and excellent times swinging iron and putting on lush greens.

With a course ranked as one of the best ones in the country, Eksjö Golf Club is proud to welcome you to join their 800 members in a diverse and technically challenging experience. Designed by architect Anders Amilon, it is a beautiful example of fantastic environmental conditions and professional keeping and maintenance. “The first hole is on the list of Sweden’s top 50 and it really is quite extraordinary,” says Peter Börjesson of Eksjö Golf Club proudly. “The golfer comes straight into the sharpest momentum of the entire course, demanding attention and strategy from the very first swing.” This is a course well worthy of appreciation. Stim-

ulating and never dull, it offers an interesting game, keeping the players on their toes while maintaining a welcoming spirit. “We have a very good atmosphere in the club,” says Börjesson. “It is important to make sure that everyone feels like they are a part of the club and happy members also means a warm welcome for greenfee guests who are just dropping in for a day.” Showing visitors a good time is something Eksjö Golf Club knows all about. Eksjö town has a strong cultural commitment and during this summer many activities and events work as perfect complements for a stellar golf weekend. “Eksjö is a place where tourism flourishes over the

summer,” Börjesson explains. “Businesses, cafés and restaurants are all open and welcoming to anyone wanting to stop by and since 2008 the town has been hosting the Town Festival attracting nearly 10,000 visitor each year.” People who want to visit Eksjö Golf Club will not be disappointed. The club offers attractive packages where overnight stays at the City Hotel or other inns in the area, green-fee, breakfast and lunch are all included for a more than reasonable price. Visitors can expect a professional golf destination in a great condition, a restaurant leaving nothing to chance, and a wellstocked shop where the knowledgeable staff will be able to assist you in whatever way you need.
