The venue – Hills Golf & Sports Club
This year we welcome players, sponsors and fans to Hills Golf & Sports Club. Opened in 2005, the course was designed by Arthur Hills and Steve Forrest and is located just a drive away from downtown Gothenburg. Since its inauguration Hills has gone through a few redesigns and last fall the course maintenance team did a complete renovation of all greens in order to present a world class golf course for 2018 and the Nordea Masters. Adjacent to the beautiful Sandsjöbacka nature reserve, the club have focused on the overall landscape, making it an attraction for both golfers and outdoor enthusiasts. The changing topography makes Hills a test of both mind and body. Those who manage to keep mind and physique fresh will find success when the pressure is on at the 18th hole, surrounded by the main stands at the club house.
The breakthrough - It was inevitable, the win would come. The question was when. The answer is now! Joakim Lagergren, our young, yet long-time friend, claimed his breakthrough win on the European Tour at the ROCCO FORTE Sicilian Open in May 2018. When we met him for the first time in 2010, what struck us the most was his belief in himself. He was only 19 years old at the time, but his youthful confidence combined with a mature determination was something we hadn’t seen before. Talent, mindset and hard work has made Joakim Lagergren what he is today - a winner. The best part is it’s only the beginning of the journey. Congratulations Joakim and keep going!
