Fancy a bit of midnight snow golf?

EVER dreamt about playing a round of golf in the middle of the night under the northern lights on a snow-covered course? Nope? Well neither had we but once the invitation had been extended we jumped at the opportunity.

We went in March last year and played a round of golf which will stick in our minds forever and you could also enjoy this unique experience. 

One of the world's northernmost and spectacular golf courses is located in Björkliden, 250 kilometers north of the Arctic Circle. During the winter season, there is the opportunity to experience the unique feeling of playing on a completely new and difference surface – snow.

The greens are transformed to ‘whites’ and golf balls are fluorescent orange which can be seen from several hundred miles away.

Golfers can put themselves to the test on the 9 hole course, which has a ‘moderately difficult’ rating and a mixture of compacted snow which form the ‘whites’ and untouched show for the fairways and beyond.

The course is open on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8pm – 12pm and Saturdays from 1pm – 6pm during the months of December, January, February and March.
