Six years ago Lofoten wasn’t in the 100, so this may seem punchy. Some holes are less than classic, but many, many more you will remember for the rest of your life. The setting is the biggest lure – and is peerless – but it is more than that. So many holescarved out in this utopia are world-class.
Setting: 1. Lofoten Links
There can’t be anywhere in the world to beat its setting. Turnberry meets Ben Nevis. Jaw-dropping.
Memorability1. Lofoten Links
The dog-leg 1st around the sandy bay is a wow start. The short 2nd is one of the finest in all of Europe. Need we go on?
