Golfbaan Ooghduyne - Course # 43

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 # 39

Written on 1 March 2017 in Noord-Holland

I have done it! It has occurred… I have beaten the “Evil Swede”! And on an amazing links course to boot! A course that was quite simply one of the most beautiful courses we have ever played in The Netherlands. The Texelse is a links course. It’s located on the Island of Texel (obviously) and...

Golfbaan Sluispolder - Course # 36

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 # 35

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...

Golfvereniging Beemster - Course # 34

Written on 28 November 2016 in Noord-Holland

The Beemster golf course embodies the Dutch term: “gezellig”. It is a cozy 9 hole par 32 course with a tight, links-style design and an open view of the surrounding fields. It’s challenging but not very long (only 2107 meters) so accuracy is king here. The small-‘ish’ greens are nice and accomodating (Colin had his...

Drentsche Golf en Country Club - Course # 32

Written on 24 November 2016 in Drenthe

Now, some people like a nice walk spoiled, or an excuse to get out in nature, …or prefer a challenge that tests the limits of one’s abilities, …or just like “scoring”. The Drentsce offers all of these. The 27 holes gives you a variety of combinations and getting a tee time the same day shouldn’t...

BurgGolf St. Nicolaasga - Course # 13

Written on 1 June 2016 in Friesland

Man talk about a rough start… on the first hole (a par 4) I shot a 8 and “Da Swede” hit a birdie 3. Yuck. Followed it up with a couple bogeys and thought I was coming back, and then… shot a 9 on a par 4! Owwwwch… 11 over after four holes!? Uh oh…...
