Meaning Heather in the local language, Ljunghusens is an appropriately named links-style course cut through great swathes of glorious heather and set very close to the Baltic Sea. Exposed to quite severe winds off the shoreline, the land itself here is very flat but the conditions can change quickly and turn even the simplest holes into a battle for survival.

The contrast between baked-out fescue fairways and flowering heather is very appealing, and the golf design is mostly solid. Holes are well bunkered and the greens sensibly contoured, if at times a touch repetitive with most heavily fortified on one side. Most greens are flat and feature open fronts to accommodate the chasing approach. The front nine plays through the thickest heather, while the back gets closest to the sea and also incorporates ponds and several wetland areas.

From a design perspective the holes are solid but unspectacular, however the general turf standard and fun of playing such a bouncy and exposed golf course make this a track most will thoroughly enjoy playing. As most greens are set down and quite flat, missing in the right spot, away from the sand, leaves fairly simple up and downs - though chipping down wind can be problematic. Ljunghusens is a rock solid course that makes an excellent secondary course for anyone visiting this part of the world to play Falsterbo.
