“Few places in the world, including golf courses, have the same effect on me as Visby Golfklubb and Kronholmen.”

It has been and is a great honour for me to transform and manage this historic golf course. I will never forget that day in 2005, when Adam Mednickson and I visited the club for the first time. The wind was blowing from the north. It was three plus degrees in the air. But we could do nothing but agree with Douglas Brasier, who was hired forty years earlier to develop the course: I would truly say that you have wonderful opportunities to make a remarkably good golf course, or courses, at Kronholmen. The area, rich in history as well as flora and bird life, is truly unique. The absolute proximity to the sea, which is visible from all holes, gives the game and the experience another dimension. At Visby Golf Club, we have created 27 holes in a new shape, with retained soul and character and with the feeling of constantly wanting to return. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do! ”

For us, it’s always golf season

To be able to work on such a unique course as Visby Golf Club is fantastic. Every day, my employees and I strive to deliver and set up the best course we can, based on weather, wind, and other circumstances. I and the team who work here love the game of golf and the place Kronholmen. In dialogue with Pierre Fulke, we nurture and develop the course all year round. We work a lot with details – often by hand and with smaller machines – inspired by the British golf culture where fantastic green surfaces are presented with small means. We simply do our utmost to get that little extra, which enhances your gaming and nature experience.

Much pleasure!
