Arlandastad Golf where the European Tour’s Scandinavian Masters is to be played this week is a golf resource with a difference.
Consisting of two 18-hole championship courses of which nine holes are floodlight, a four hole training course and built inside the giant Arlandastad Business Park in Stockholm, it has uniquely been developed with the specific purpose of catering to the Park’s 350 mainly high tech companies and their clients.
These companies employ more than 4,000 employees, give business to 70 shops and three hotels in the Park and last year attracted more than four million visitors wishing to make use of what the Park’s website has described as a “pulsating international market and meeting place aimed primarily at High Tech companies.”
“It is a logistics centre for northern Europe; a place for business, goods manufacturing, trade, experience and recreation, where companies, employees and visitors feel at home and work together,” the website says in explaining the purpose of the Park.
“The great variety, the excellent design, organisations, and high level of service guarantee this,” it adds
The Arlandastad Golf centre is an important part of the Business Park, it’s management believe; a place where “colleagues and guests can meet, play a round or two, attend conferences and enjoy first-class food.”
It’s large number of visitors has been generated up to and more than 100 corporate events a year since 2000 and has resulted in the centre extended its facilities to 36-hole holes for championship play and a four-hole training course.
Nine of the centre’s holes are floodlight, enabling short rounds to be played during late autumn evenings.
THE GOLF COURSES
The two 18-hole courses are said to have “a Scottish nature”, even though both are parkland rather than links courses.
The Old Course, home of the Scandinavian Masters is a par 70, opened in 1993 in a pristine parkland setting measuring 6,180 yards from the men’s tees and 5,285 from the ladies tees.
Although not long, the course, with water hazards protecting twelve holes, is considered to be a good test of golf, both for top flight professionals for handicap golfers of all levels
The new course is a par 71 parkland course opened in 2002 but thanks to the general layout and especially the areas around the greens many visitors find it similar to a links course.
Measuring 5,868 yards from the men’s tee and 4,850 from the ladies tee, the new course is shorter than the one, but thanks to narrower fairways and some hazardous rough, is considered by many to be the more difficult of the two courses.
