LOCAL INTERESTS

Copenhagen started out as a Viking fishing village in the 10th century, and five centuries later became the capital of Denmark. Today this is a modern and highly aesthetic looking city, infused with typical Danish cool – from the clothes worn by the beautiful people on the street, to the design of the streetlamps. But while Scandinavian modernity is celebrated, so too is the city’s rich heritage and culture.
Denmark’s National Art Gallery is home to the world’s finest collection of Danish artists from the ‘Golden Age’ period; the Rosenborg Slot castle is a whimsical image of fairytale gables and moats, with an interior as rich as its past; while the Christiansborg Slot, now home to the country’s parliament, takes visitors on a glorious tour of ornate reception rooms, and the workings of a royal kitchen. To truly captivate the romantic aura of Copenhagen, head to Frederiksberg Have, a beautiful green park with rolling lawns, lakes and secret woods. On warmer days, idle on to Nyhavn canal, find a spot at a table at one of the quayside cafes and watch the barges sail by. These were the scenes and smells that fueled the imagination of Copenhagen’s most famous adopted son, Hans Christian Andersen, who wrote some of his greatest stories while living at Nyhavn. Fans of traditional amusement parks mustn’t miss out on Tivoli Gardens, a 19th century site complete with classic carnival games and illuminated pavilions. Or see for yourself the results of an anti-establishment movement that saw the creation of an entire new neighborhood in Copenhagen, the commune of Christiania.

Gilles Labourdette cruises to victory at the Scandinavian Golf Club as Yulia Golubeva continues to impress in the Ladies Series

For its third leg, the World Amateur Tour visited Denmark and one of its most beautiful golf courses, The Scandinavian, located only a few miles away from Copenhagen city center.

With its 36 holes designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr, the players faced one of the most challenging courses of the year with wind and wet conditions on the last day.

Gilles Labourdette from Paris International Club took his chance from the first holes and played a great first round to take the lead just a few shots ahead of Bernard Jossein and Jean-François Jeanne. During the second day, all the crowd thought that it was going to be an easy win for Labourdette but suddenly the players behind started to play a better golf, putting a lot of pressure on the leader until that last hole.

But with a lot of serenity, Gilles Labourdette finally signed a par on the final hole to score 3 points stableford and secure a maiden victory on the Tour.

At the second place we find 5 players including Christophe Guedon who won an additional title in the 2ndSeries, and Franck Henouda winning the Seniors Series.

In the Ladies Series, Yulia Golubeva cruised to a third victory in a row leaving no hope to her contenders. Anne-Catherine Robin, who spent a few months away from golf due to a knee injury, played a consistent game but not enough to hope for a win.

After this event Italian Marco Saviozzi remains the leader of the World Amateur Tour ranking followed by Christophe Guedon, Sylvain Berger Duquene and Franck Henouda.

In the Ladies series, Yulia Golubeva keeps the lead of the Race to La Reserva followed by Irina Nesterova and Laetitia Chang respectively at the second and third place.

Everyone is now waiting for the next event to take place at one of the most famous golf clubs in Scotland, home of The Open Championship, The Turnberry Golf Club.
