A unique and historic golf course next to the King’s Hunting Castle
The Royal Copenhagen Golf Club is situated in Dyrehaven, which is a forest park established by the Danish King Christian V in the late 17th century. The Royal Copenhagen Golf Club is situated in an area of the park from where you have a beautiful view of Eremitage Slottet.
As a crown prince, the Danish King Christian V went hunting in France with King Louis XIV, also called the Sun King. Inspired by this experience he had Dyrehaven laid out so that the grounds could accommodate the special and noble par force form of hunting. In the process, the village of Stokkerup and the neighboring fields were demolished.
The golf course follows the natural rolling countryside from a time when the area was farmland. The course was designed by a now unknown Scottish architect and established in 1928. In 2009 Tom Mackenzie, also a Scotsman, redesigned the course and made it more up-to-date. The challenging features besides the wind include the hollows surrounding many of the greens and the heavy rough.
Visiting the Royal Copenhagen Golf Club, you will be playing golf at a historical but modern golf course in beautiful surroundings north of Copenhagen.
