Golf in Germany
Golf in Germany is known for being a bit traditional, but the standard of German golf courses is high. Golf courses in Germany are also known for their diversity. There are some very good links style courses in Germany, for example WINSTONgolf, but there are also very nice woodland, parkland and heathland courses. When visiting Germany for golf you can count on attractive prices for gastronomy and hotels. Add the good quality of the golf clubs and you can have an outstanding golf holiday in Germany. There are also some very good golf resorts in Germany like: Sport & Spa Resort A-ROSA Scharmützelsee, Hardenberg GolfResort, Schloss Ludersburg and Golf Resort Achental. Germany is no stranger to professional golf. It has produced Major Champions like Berhard Langer and Martin Kaymer and it has been host to many professional tournaments like the BMW International Open and the Porsche European Open on the European Tour and the Ladies German Open and the Solheim Cup on the Ladies European Tour. When looking for a specific golf region in Germany, there are basically two choices. There is North Rhine-Westphalia in the west, where 164 golf clubs are situated. In the south you have Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg that host 248 golf clubs together. When moving south to the Bavaria region, you enter the north-side of the European Alps which will lead to some stunning mountain views when playing golf in Germany. The experience of playing golf on some of the best German golf courses will even get better with the views of these impressive mountains. Germany has a moderate sea climate with relatively mild winters, no extremely hot summers and rainfall throughout the year. Because of the various mountains and hilly areas you can still find quite some variation in weather in Germany, especially in the Thuringian Forest, the Bavarian Forest, the Black Forest, Sauerland and the Bavarian Alps.

Mühlenhof Golf & Country Club
Het kan steeds dichterbij, na het Corona tijdperk openen ook de banen in Nordrhein-Westfalen weer, en dan is Muehlenhof nooit ver. Leuke baan, veel water, lange par3s, en soms ver lopen tussen de holes (vooral na 7). Uitdagende golfbaan met (vaak) hele leuke aanbiedingen.

Kölner Golfclub
Die Bahnen des Links- und des Championship-Course sind wirklich gut modelliert worden, sodass viele Spielsituationen entstehen (Stand über/unter dem Ball etc.) und dementsprechend trainiert werden können. Putten, chippen und pitchen kann man auf den Übungsanlagen ebenfalls gut, die Range ist groß aber ein wenig langweilig gestaltet. Clubhaus, Shop u. Gastro versorgen mit …

Golf Club Gut Lärchenhof
Playing at Gut Lärchenhof was on my wish list for a long time. Ever since visiting the course during the BMW Open I wanted to play here. As a Jack Nicklaus fan that has played about 2 dozen of his courses around the world this is probably one the closest to my house in The Netherlands. First of all we played the course on a Monday in winter after a lot of rain, even dur…

Golfclub Hofgut Georgenthal
Mooie locatie, vriendelijk personeel, schone kamers, goed eten 's avonds, goed ontbijt, goede sauna en zwembad. In de namiddag niet zo veel gasten (beetje leeg) en was theekamer / bar beetje leeg en koud om te verblijven. De stoelen zijn niet echt comfortabel, zijn meer ligstoelen. De golfbaan is prachtig, hij moet over de jaren nog meer volwassen worden qua begroeiing…
