Banana Masters -A tough but great challenge
The old track designed by Sunde Linde was inaugurated on June 5, 1993 by Anders Forsbrand and Helen Alfredsson. A lot has happened since then and the old 18-hole course, today the Masters Course, has been renovated from scratch to a real championship course with the help of Sweden''s best golfers and European Tours good advice.
The Masters Course is about 5700 meters long with twelve holes adjacent to water obstacles. With prevailing winds, dense ruffs and narrow fairways, you need to use your imagination and think of location instead of just far. There are few golfers in the world who can master this course as it is played as par 70. There are enough challenges that will keep you from getting bored. The course is tough, but an average golfer can enjoy the round as long as you can keep the ball in play. The course can quickly take advantage of weaknesses in your game. Accurate pushes will facilitate your close play and the ability to chip and putt will save your score at oblique tee shots. One more thing there are plenty of water obstacles so precision is key.
In the autumn of 2016, another step was taken in the work of developing the track when a total renovation of the track''s bunker system began. The goal was to give the track a common thread throughout its design language where adjustment of location and above all number of bunkers was made. The work was completed in the spring of 2017 and the course had then received a smaller number of bunkers and which in their design is also smaller in size but which are now more strategically placed and came to affect the game even more. The aesthetic design language also changed as the sand became whiter and the edges a little sharper.
Today, the condition of the course is without a doubt among the best Sweden has to offer and the course often ends up at the top as Sweden''s best courses are ranked. From a technical point of view, it is considered by most players, regardless of handicap and playing standard, to be a tough but wonderful challenge.
