Yet what many people outside of Scandinavia ignores, is the fact that in recent years, Denmark has steadily become a golfing powerhouse. Yes, the land of the vikings is turning into a large, beautiful green golf course, sprinkled with spas and business centers. Thus creating a perfect icy paradise for business, golf and relaxation.

The Himmerland Golf and Spa resort it's deeply committed to all of its guest. For that reason, like last year, have decided to keep Garia Course open during the Made in Denmark Tournament, meaning that guests will be able to enjoy a round of golf during the tournament. Due to the setting up of tents etc. certain holes will still be closed, and the course will therefore be played in a particular hole sequence, yet the decision to keep the course open for their guest is a clear prove of Himmerland commitment to provide total satisfaction to his guests.

In that same sense the staff of the Himmerland offers every year a New Year Gala as well as several gourmet events, that include free access to the swimming pool and other recreational areas.

The company has decided to pursue a philosophy of extreme attention to detail, luxurious installations and specially, luxurious services aim towards spa, gastronomy and relaxation.
