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...

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....

De Texelse Golfclub - Course # 38

Written on 1 March 2017 in Noord-Holland

Golfbaan Sluispolder - Course # 35

Written on 8 December 2016 in Noord-Holland

Daniel is an evil man. He just is. Anyone who can win matchplay so often on the last two holes should simply have horns on their forehead, (of course he would respond by saying, “stop shanking on the 18th ya fårskalle!”) Meh. Match play aside, Sluispolder is a nice course with a little bit of...

Golfbaan het Rijk van Nunspeet - Course # 34

Written on 3 December 2016 in Gelderland

This is one of our favourite courses… It’s like someone decided to lay down a meandering golf course through a pristine pine forest. The 27 fun, challenging holes are not impossible or unreachable. Nestled in a beautiful pine forest the lovely fairways (even in winter) are a joy to pound drives down. The trees all...
