Looks beautifully done so far!  This one looks like it will be a challenge for the simulator users...tight looking fairways!

Mcbogga can probably correct me if I'm wrong, but the average golfer course in Sweden is far narrower than American. I'm basing this statement based on a Google search on average fairway width and a comparison of my home Club.

I might correct you even if you are right, mate. ;-)

For sure Swedish courses are a bit narrow, especially the inland ones. Mainly a financial thing as for most of them the funds for clearing and earth moving were very limited. Add to that the generally rocky terrain in Sweden and it's understandable that we ended up with a lot of short quirky courses from guys like Skold and Linde.

Good thing about it is that it teaches golfers to hit it straight and think their way around a course and I think it has been a helping factor in producing a high number of world class golfers considering the size and climate of our dear country.

Oh - and the Swedish tradition of a sports club run by its members and not as a for profit enterprise plays a part here as well... Quirky and narrow is normally not a huge money-maker.

That said - after being subjected to Japanese courses for a long time now my personal concept of "narrow" has changed considerably. Many Japanese courses have holes that are bordering on silliness.
