Claiming a home among the towering pines and seaside lands of Sweden's golfing playground are the par 72-championship courses, the North Course and the South Course in Tylösand, just 8 km outside the town of Halmstad. It has several times been ranked as the best golf course in Sweden. The British journal Golf World voted Tylösand Europe's 2nd Best course outside the UK in 2001.

Halmstad GK was the host for the 2007 Solheim Cup. The United States defeated Europe 16 to 12. The Solheim Cup is a biennial golf tournament for professional women golfers contested by teams representing Europe and the United States. The club also hosted the 2011 European Amateur.
