Golf Course Architecture - Issue 73, July 2023

14 Swede dream for Stenson TEE BOX Construction is in progress on the new Crownwood Club project north of Helsingborg on Sweden’s west coast. The club is owned by pro golfer Henrik Stenson, golf course architect Christian Lundin and Norwegian golf investor Arild Karlsen, and will include an 18-hole course for members and a public 11-hole course, plus extensive practice facilities. “It’s not directly on the ocean, but it’s as close as you are going to get permission to build a golf course on, in Sweden. With sandy soil and pine trees, it’s a great property for golf,” said Stenson, in an interview with GCA. “We want our members and guests and juniors to feel that these guys really care about golf,” said Lundin. “If we can do that, I think the project will be very successful.” Crownwood Club is scheduled to open in summer 2025.
