Member Reviews:

Really enjoyed this course. Played with limited wind and played very fair. Will remind you of playing one of your favorite pubic courses that you grew up playing. Much easier course compared to Mikael's other courses.


Pros:

Smooth FPS rating

Plenty of challenging tee shots

Loved the scenery


Cons:

Some very basic green concepts

Experience a Swedish parkland course without actually having to go to Sweden!

Mike nails the feel of the most common type of Swedish golf course in his rendition of his home club. It plays easy for the game - but it feels like a real course. The finish is impeccable, as we have grown to expect from MikeMike3000 design. 

Personally I think the course in game would have benefited from exaggerating the greens a bit to get some slopes and make it a bit harder to sink those 10-15 feet birdie-putts. Also it would be very interesting to see a fantasy set of back-tees and then some tucked pins. 

Overall a must play!

Fun design that reminds me of courses in my area. Lots of quick doglegs where you have to decide to lay up or try and cut the corner over the trees.

I played this beautiful course and it was just like being there. A lot of detail has been put into every part of this design and it is made with a lot of skill.

The course played pretty easy (I only wish Vallentuna was this easy in real life) although there are some tricky shots along the way. I played in low wind and higher winds will give more of a challenge.

The course is a pleasure to play as Vallentuna is an amazing course and the designer has made an excellent and flawless job on this course.

It has gone to my favorites list.
