What and Where is Lindsborg Golf Course
Lindsborg Golf Course is the public course of the historic Lindsborg, Kansas known for its association with Swedish heritage and the biennial Svensk Hyllningsfest. This course encourages families to enjoy the course, regardless of skill. It is also a great course for golfers at any level, providing challenges and beautiful scenery along the way.
History of the Course
Lindsborg Golf Course opened in 1960; this parkland type course was designed by Hilding Jaderborg with the help of many members of the community at the time. When it originally opened, it had unique cottonseed hull greens rather than traditional sand greens, as well as the No. 9 tee box being elevated so you could see over the hill, literally making you climb to tee off. One of the longest-running tournaments at the course is the Ol’ Stuga tournament which has been held at the course for 40 years now and is provided by the Ol’ Stuga bar, a well-known bar in the city. This year the Ol’ Stuga tournament is being changed to the Ol’ Stuga Invitational.
Experience Sweden without the Cost
Lindsborg, nicknamed little Sweden USA, is a great place to take a golf trip to as there is plenty to do in this beautiful city. This year the city is celebrating its 150th anniversary as well as the 2019 Svensk Hyllningsfest, a celebration held on every odd-numbered year celebrating the Swedish pioneers who settled the Smoky Valley in 1868 – 1869. The festival features arts and crafts, special foods, ethnic music, and other special entertainment while Swedish folk dancers and musicians add to the flavor of the festival. Some other famous attractions the city has to offer are the Karpov International School of Chess (1 of the 15 worldwide), The Wild Dala Horses (one of the 8 wonders of Kansas), historic churches, as well as more that can be found at The Lindsborg Visitors Bureau.
