The course[edit]

Borre Golfbane consist of two parkland courses, 18 and 9 holes. The 18-hole course, "New Borre" is par 72 and 6365 meters long (6851 yds) from champions tees. It runs along lake Borrevannet, which makes it a scenic experience. Most visiting golfers praise the surroundings even if the scoring could be better.

The nine-hole course, "Old Borre" is par 36 and 2927 meters long (3200 yds) from champion tees. This is the back-nine of the original course, and demanding enough, with water in play on seven holes and surrounding forest on most of the course. Both courses have four tees; ladies and gentlemen, club and champion tees.
