Öijared invites to many rounds in good company
Nowhere else in Sweden is it possible to play such varied golf as at Öijared. Most special of all is the large and lively community with its warm, welcoming atmosphere.
Here you’ll find three 18-hole courses (including one pay and play), and one 9-hole course (pay and play). For us it is central that everyone is able to play golf – young and old, pros and beginners, singles and parents with young children.
In 1959 the decision was taken to establish a golf course at Öijared, turning it into the Gothenburg region’s second golf course. The landowner Sten-Gustaf Fredrik Adlerstierna-Adelsköld became chairman of the Öijared Golf Club and remained so for the rest of his life.
Our golf courses
Gamla banan, the old course, was designed by Douglas Brasier and opened as a 18-hole course in 1965.
The course was redesigned in 2006 by Pierre Fulke and officially re-opened in 2008 at the club’s 50th anniversary. The course is one of the most challenging in western Sweden, with its undulating greens, strategically placed bunkers and high roughs.
Nya banan, the new course, is a traditional Swedish golf course that has hosted for example Öijared Ladies Open during the Telia Tour.
The course is an open forest and park course with varied character, where each hole has its own room. It is considered of middle length and difficulty, and offers some stunning views over the lake at hole 4 and 5. It was opened in 1970.
Parkbanan, the park course, is a gorgeous pay and play course of 18 holes with a spectacular first tee on the green roof of the clubhouse. The course was opened in 1989 and designed to be short, quickly played and exclusive. The short holes and narrow passages challenge all golfers regardless of handicap.
Järnbanan, the iron course, is a short course of 9 holes open to all, regardless of handicap or golf experience. A fun challenge for the beginner golfer, and an excellent course to practice close-up play and shorter irons. Opened in 1975, the iron course is a pay and play course with holes between 75 and 125 meters.
