As a northern Nordic country, there is plenty of daylight in the summertime and the golf season runs from May to October.

The winters are harsh in Sweden, however, there are some pockets with mild temperatures and a little bit of extra length to the season. Expect a huge annual range of temperatures in this country.

In our list, perhaps the best-known architect is Robert Trent Jones. He designed a course in the Stockholm area that has an exceptional length.
