Bokskogen Golf Club
Bokskogen Golf Club has been founded in 1963 and today boasts two challenging 18-hole golf courses of great natural beauty on ancient terrain from the 18th century. Around the lovely and varied grounds of Torup and Skabersjö Castles the management has taken great care in creating a challenging golf environment meeting the highest demands for every true golfer. The two courses are closely connected to the lake Yddingen, offering a wonderful view of the surroundings.
The Old Course, with its generous fairways, water hazards and large immaculate putting surfaces, challenges club players and professionals alike. The Old Course has six 6 different course lengths to choose from, the back tees counting up to a full 6.500 meters and par 71! The shorter Kings Course may not be as challenging as the Old Course but offers a different test: Slightly narrower fairways and smaller greens put a focus on the accuracy of the player’s short game while the great surroundings and scenic views soothe the eye. In the middle of the two beautifully sculpted courses, the club features a 6-hole children’s course and a 4-hole practice course.
