Rhoon Golfcenter, Oude Maas - Course # 48

Written on 21 May 2018 in Zuid-Holland

We were called out by Paul van Mazijk and Lisa Rainville for a grudge match on their home course: Rhoon Golfcenter, Oude Maas. This is a lovely course on the edge of the Oude Maas distributary, set in the Dutch countryside. Lined with parkland trees and very nicely taken care of, we thoroughly enjoyed this...

Golfclub Flevoland - Course # 47

Written on 14 May 2018 in Flevoland

A surprisingly different course for The Netherlands! Golfclub Flevoland is set along the edge of the Ijsselmeer on one side and with a vacation homes lining the other side. Just not your typical set up for Holland. Well manicured with unexpectedly nice bunkers, long meandering holes with a few nifty par 3’s in for good...

Golfbaan Westwoud - Course # 46

Written on 26 August 2017 in Noord-Holland

Golf is a fickle game, where the highs and lows can crush the hopes of the most sturdy of sports players. So I say: at least try and experience it in lovely surroundings. My game at Westwood was a Tale of Two Cities, in that it was either “on” or “off”. Started out up after...

Prise d’eau Golf - Course # 45

Written on 9 July 2017 in Noord-Brabant

Ya’ know, if I could putt… just a wee bit… it’d literally change my life. And I would be getting free beers from da “Evil Swede” …constantly! I played a very good round for me. Under my handicap even, but if I could putt it would have been just sooo much better. It was a...

Golfpark Spandersbosch - Course # 44

Written on 30 May 2017 in Noord-Holland

For a YouTube golf lesson series that we are making we were looking for the narrowest golf course in the Netherlands. I’ve got a big fade ball flight and the goal of this YouTube series is for me to be able to hit straighter shots. That’s why we were looking for a course so tight...

Golf and Countryclub Heiloo - Course # 43

Written on 22 May 2017 in Noord-Holland

On this day, on a nice golf course in the middle of some lovely Dutch fields a battle ensued. A valiant fight of good vs evil. Fought between soft fluffy sand bunkers, meandering streams and manicured greens. I hit more well-groomed fairways than ever before in my life and “The Evil Swede” had to pull...

Golfbaan Ooghduyne - Course # 42

Written on 21 April 2017 in Noord-Holland

Wow! Some solid golf on a really nice course made for a pretty darn good match! The course kept it exciting with nice fairways speckled with tough bunkers, fun and friendly second cuts alongside wicked out of bounds water, and undulating greens that were seriously speedy, but rolled darn pure. Yet another very good day indeed....

Golfbaan Tespelduyn - Course # 41

Written on 23 March 2017 in Zuid-Holland

Today we both left the golf course with goofy smiles slapped across our faces. We didn’t feel beaten up, which happens so very often on golf courses, not at all today. Instead we were, well… elated! Our games were pretty good, but this course just made playing fun! The massive hill in the center made...

Heemskerkse Golfclub - Course # 40

Written on 22 March 2017 in Noord-Holland

I had a feeling that Heemskerkse Golf course would be a place for me to do well. And I could offer a serious challenge to “The Evil Swede”. Heemskerkse is a nicely laid out polder course, with a decent amount of space to attack the course properly. I had a chance to play some solid...
