In an effort to increase links between the golf industry and the wider community Atvidaberg Golf Resort opened their fairways up on the morning of Sunday 30th May. To celebrate Ascension Day, they invited Atvids parish and The Church of Sweden to conduct their worship on the path beneath the 10th tee. The service took place in bright sunshine but with a fresh wind. The vicar Kirsten Alm preached and the church choir sang under the direction of Reine Eriksson. A congregation of around forty were present in addition to about twenty singers. After the service, they all gathered in the Golf restaurant for breakfast.
