Golfclub Dirkshorn - Course # 29

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...

Golfclub Houtrak - Course # 28

Written on 9 November 2016 in Noord-Holland

Houtrak is a “solid” course. Nice greens, pretty fairways with a bit of up and down in them. Every few holes a nice tee shot from the trees. The course is long and makes you grab your driver more often than most courses. From the back tees it’s a 6411 meter monster! If you can...

Ok, the KLM Open used to play here for the Dutch leg of the European tour. So.. yea.. bring your “A game” for sure. Course management and keeping it in the fairway are paramount here. It’s located in the sand dunes and course is one of the few Dutch “real” links courses. The course with...

Zaanse Golf Club - Course # 16

Written on 17 June 2016 in Noord-Holland

With elevated tees in the middle of a lovely part of the Dutch countryside is the Zaanse Golf Club. Daniel and I battled valiantly in a heck of a strong 10 hole match play. Some of my better golf was balanced by Daniel being his typical evil self. However, my Chip-O was in full effect...
