Pros: This course is in a college town about 1/2 way between Stockholm and Copenhagen, a good place to get off the train for a couple hours and play a round! Less than a 10 min bus ride on the 18 bus to Tornhagen stop than a couple min walk to the Rydskogens multipurpose park and Hole 1. The map and hole print outs here were fairly accurate, only change is that they sometimes combine holes 4/5 for a long dogleg and have a hole X for 5(now listed as White tees).
This beautiful course wanders through a mature, if boggy, northern forest with quite a bit of native rock to add a little difficulty. Tees vary. They are almost all artificial turf, but a few haven't been very well boxed or leveled.
Most holes have reasonably wide fairways(for a forest course) and there is a good mix of type of holes. They made very good use of the local landscape so no 2 holes are alike. A very fair course, I was rarely in a place on the edge of the fairway that I didn't have a shot. It may not have been an easy one, but it was there. There are even a couple more open hole where you can let one rip, as long as reasonably accurate.
There was a surprise water hazard on 4 which tried to eat my Monarch, but thanks to friendly local beginners Tom and Noah(and some wading by me) it was retrieved.
Next tee arrows in bottom of baskets and on trees. Also red squares among path to next tees, this is a well worn in course and with these aids it was very easy to follow.
Cons: Not alot, really. No trashcans or water on course, and a couple tees were a little lumpy, but that's it. Oh, and it's in a bog, mosquitoes might be horrible in summer.
Other Thoughts: I really liked this course. Pleasant surroundings, challenging holes, and neat odd art(pics to follow) made of discs on random holes. I'll highly recommend it. and would make a point of playing it again if back in Sweden.

Pros: Fun, challenging course.
A mix of different types of holes, some open and long, some short and tight through the trees. Mostly wooded terrain though.
Good tees, all are either tiled, asphalt. None are uneaven or slippery.
Pretty well maintained, the grass/vegetation is kept short, and there's a lot of "in season work", to keep it up to shape.
Football field for warm up and practice - note though that it's not dedicated, so it might be in use by others!
The "Next Tee"-signs are often destroyed, so occasionally there's problems for first time visitors to find their way. Bring the map if it's your first time!
Also the maps for holes get torn down, so you might lack a description - bring map/scorecard!
Occasionally wet, some parts are poorly drained, and will get wet with excessive raining. (Not many though, 2-3 parts of the course)
No restaurant or similar.
Other Thoughts: Overall a very challenging and fun course. With course directions and hole maps the course would be perfect.
Also the lack of dedicated range/practise area drops the score from being top notch. I'd love to see a dedicated field with distace markers and a restaurant/reception area...
