Leonard review

I played the Dutch in the pro-am a day before the 2018 KLM Open. The weather on the front nine wasn't great a bit of a drizzle. The course was obviously in tournament condition. I have never played on such fast and true greens in the Netherlands and the narrow fairways with the meticulously 1st and 2nd cut off rough were amazing. The practice facilities of the Dutch are great a drivingrange of grass, the landing area maintained as a long par 5 with hilly areas and rough, super. If you are there to play don't skip it and you will need the practice. Although we started at hole number 5 I'll write my review from hole 1, seems to make more sense. Hole 1 is a pretty straight forward par 4 not super long and from the yellow tee the frontal water at the end of the fairway comes in play. It's about 230 meters. This was one of the few holes where we outdrove the pro but hey the backtee was 70 meters behind us... hole 2 is a par 4 of 366 meters but it plays longer. On the whole right side is water (a bit like on hole 17 but with more space) so you tend to play more on the left side that actually makes the hole longer. Hole 3 looks more difficult than it is. There is quite some space to land over the bunkers, a 3 wood should do the trick. Then a wedge or 9 iron into the green. Hole 4 is a relatively easy par 3, at least compared to the others. Hole 5 is a long par 4, stay on the left side of the fairway so you can use the length of the green to land your approach. Most of the time this 3nd shot is over 170 meter. On 6 the drive is ok and the length of the hole might tempt you to go for the green in 2 but be careful for all the bunkers and the green is quite undulating as well. Hole 7 is a birdie hole; hit an iron in front off the bunker or a hybrid/wood over the left bunker to have a short wedge in. Hole 8: Tricky par 3 with lots of bunkers and again difficult green especially with stimp 12.4. Hole 9 is an other long par 4 (392 from yellow) back to the clubhouse, careful with the wind and the water at the end. Hole 10 from the pro-tees is a monster 198 meters almost all over water. From the yellow it's ok but still quite a shot, depending on the pin position and the wind this is a huge risk for a high score. Hole 11 is an other long par 4 (406 meters from yellow) the wind is a big factor here also the rough and water on the left and at the end of the fairway makes this a good test. 12 is one of my favorite holes a good drive right off the bunker can set you up for a birdie make sure your approach is close because putting is tricky here. 13 is very long for amateurs also the fact that the green is on a hill and very undulated makes this a tough hole. Par or bogey is a good result here. 14 was the Beat the Pro hole set on the red tees for the tournament chance for birdie but you have to get it close to the pin. From 15 till 18 this championship course really shows its teeth, scores can be ruined in these last 4 holes. Hole 15 is an other long par 5 with a challenging 3rd shot due to the bunkering and slopey green. 16 is an other challenging par 3 with a lot of water in your face and a big bunker on the right. Hole 17 is also one of my favorites. Not super long but very strategic. Water all along the right side and on the left side before the green. If you want to have a short approach you need to take a lot of risk on your teeshot. And a long approach is super dangerous with the water,2 bunkers and the water. Plus again a very slopey green. Excellent designed short par 4 by Colin Montgomerie and European Golf Design. The finishing hole 18 is an excellent finish for this challenging championship course a 500+ meter par 5 (522 from yellow and 585 for the pro's) that forces you to play it in 3. The creek in front of the last part of the fairway and green makes the layup challenging also the water right of the hole and green adds excitement. Depending on the pinposition 3 puts on this green can be there before you know it. So after three years on the Dutch the next KLM Open will be as close to Schiphol as possible on the other invites-only course in the Netherlands, The International. In my opinion the Dutch from a course design, maintenance and organizational point of view is the best location for a big championship. The greens are amazing and unparalleled in the Netherlands. Maybe the course is on the difficult side for 18+ handicappers especially with wind and or rain. But if you tee it forward it's great to play. There are some holes (1,2,5 & 6) who are a bit less exciting as the spectacular holes (12,13,17 &18) on the back nine. The staff and service at the Dutch is also from a level that only a handfull of clubs can match. To sum everything up, if you are invited to the Dutch clear your schedule and go. Hopefully they will stay in the KLM Open rota because it's made to host more The Dutch Open tournaments.
