Golfpark Spandersbosch - Course # 45

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 # 44

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 # 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....

Heemskerkse Golfclub - Course # 41

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...

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...

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...

Burggolf de Purmer - Course # 31

Written on 20 November 2016 in Noord-Holland

What can I say, we’re members at this course and we’ve played it like 400 times between us. And while the mud can be an issue, it’s been a location that has allowed us to grow as players. It’s got a great practice area, and 4 x 9 hole courses with varying difficulties to allow...

Golfclub Dirkshorn - Course # 30

Written on 17 November 2016 in Noord-Holland

Golfclub Dirkshorn is a tough course! An inland links course (with some water hazards 🙂 ) which seems to be located in some kind of a magic vortex area where there’s always a lot of wind… A long course that makes you reach for your woods so often that you after a while start to...
