Halmstad Golf Club, Tylösand was founded in 1930. During the first year, golf was played on a temporary course, which was laid out in the Royal Halland Regiment's training area. In 1935, construction work began on an 18-hole course in Tylösand. The architect was Rafael Sundblom. In 1963, the Swedish Domain Administration received permission to dispose of an area for an additional 9 holes north of the existing course. The course architect was Nils Sköld. On May 13, 1967, the new holes were opened for play. Together with the last 9 of the old holes, they formed an 18-hole course, which today is called Norra Banan. This was also the course which hosted the Solheim Cup in 2007. After completion of the Norra Banan, in 1975, work began on another 9 holes to connect to the first 9 holes on the old course. They were designed by British railway architect Frank Pennink and are now known as the Södra Banan.

Very good upkeep. Nice restaurant.
Both courses are situated between roads and as a result you round is marred by car noise.
Played a lot of mor…
