Scandinavian Stars Set for Vasatorps Golfklubb

Volvo Scandinavian Mixed 2024

A selection of the region’s most exciting talent will converge at the Volvo Car Scandinavian Mixed this year, set to take place at Vasatorps Golfklubb in Helsingborg for the first time from June 6-9.

Among the players are past Volvo Car Scandinavian Mixed champion Linn Grant, Sweden’s most recent DP World Tour winner Jesper Svensson, and a host of other top Scandinavian golfers.

Grant and Svensson will be playing on home soil, with tickets for the event on sale now.

The tournament is co-sanctioned by the DP World Tour and Ladies European Tour, featuring a unique format with 78 men and 78 women competing on the same course for one prize fund and one trophy.

Grant made history in 2022 when she became the first female winner of a DP World Tour event, storming to a nine-stroke victory at Halmstad Golf Club.

“I’m very excited to play in the Volvo Car Scandinavian Mixed again,” said Grant.

“My victory two years ago was such an exciting moment and it’s always great to come back and play it.”

“Especially this time, as it takes place in my hometown. I’m really looking forward to it.”

Svensson is having a fantastic rookie year on the DP World Tour after earning a spot on the 2024 Race to Dubai through his success in the European Challenge Tour.

The 28-year-old recently secured his maiden victory at the Porsche Singapore Classic after two runner-up finishes in his first six starts this season.

Svensson said: “This will be the first time I’ll have played in front of a home crowd since my victory, so I can’t wait to get out there and celebrate my success with them.”

“It has been a great start to the year so far, and I would love nothing more than to add to that at Vasatorps in June.”

Joining them in Helsingborg will be DP World Tour winners Alexander Björk and Sebastian Söderberg, with compatriots Johanna Gustavsson and five-time Solheim Cup star Caroline Hedwall also confirmed to play.

Representing Denmark, four-time DP World Tour winner Rasmus Højgaard will make his first appearance at the event.

The 23-year-old is aiming for another victory in the region after winning the Made in HimmerLand title on home soil last season.

“I’m looking forward to playing in this tournament for the first time,” said Højgaard.

“It’ll be really interesting to go up against players from the Ladies European Tour, it should be a great week.”

“And with the event being held so close to Denmark, it would be great to see fans come over and support not just me but the other Danish golfers taking part too.”

Also participating is 2019 Solheim Cup player Anne van Dam, who shared third place in her first appearance at the tournament last year.

The Dutchwoman is a five-time LET winner and was a teammate of Hedwall’s at Gleneagles five years ago.

The tournament offers Official World Ranking points for both tours, as well as Race to Dubai points for the men and Order of Merit and Solheim Cup points for the women.

Previous winners include Jonathan Caldwell, Grant, and last year’s champion Dale Whitnell.

A wide range of ticket options is available, including single-day, two-day, and weekly tickets starting from 325kr.

Premium ticket options are also offered from 825kr, providing access to a viewing platform on the 17th hole, preferential parking, and food and beverage vouchers.
