Here in the former grounds of Torup castle we have poured our hearts and our souls into constructing the finest golfing resort in Scandinavia. At our disposal we have had the privilege to have worked alongside some of the most enthusiastic and knowledgeable people in golf today. This has culminated in the birth of a classic links golf course, Links Course, and a park land inspired course, Lakes Course. Both of them marries to nature and blends with beautiful harmony to the surrounding area.

The clubhouse, with 16 fully furnished suites, restaurant, bar and changing room are of the highest standard. We hope your visit to our golf resort will be a fond occasion to remember. If at any time during your stay you desire food or any sort of refreshment, our well trained, friendly staff will be more than happy to cater to your needs. On nice days the view from the terrace overlooking the 18th green of the Links Course is the prime position to fully enjoy our gastronomical delights.

Links and Lakes

Played links in pouring rain... Still the course was in perfect condition! Not a true links but a great artificial one!
Played Lakes in sunny weather on the same day. Lakes was in even better condition! Worth the money if you have some to spend

The previous speaker and "drfritzmaier" are right! Of course, both courses are great for golfing and you can let your driver run on the Lakes Course in particular, but the area on the Lakes Course, the large lake/pond and the bunker landscapes only create limited potential for memories!
The Links Course is much more challenging and prettier!
What is missing:
The greens could have been faster on a PGA National!
The Lakes Course should have more water hazards.
The links course, on the other hand, only has pot bunkers. It also seems as if a lot of rough has been removed from the lakes, which of course makes the game more fun!
The clubhouse inside and out was of the very finest quality.
However, I found it a bit too little for such a facility at this price. Personally, I liked the Vidbynäs Resort in the south of Stockholm much better!
This is of course criticism at the highest level. If this resort were in southern Bavaria it would be the absolute number 1, but in Skane the competition at the top is in a different league!
Links 5 stars, Lakes just under 4 stars

Yes, the driveway and clubhouse are impressive, as is the course designer's name. But that was it. You should just leave the church in the village. The condition was sometimes not good and the greens were Swedish standard. The place itself has no notable highlights. There are much more impressive links courses in Sweden.
