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...

Golfclub Anderstein - Course # 33

Written on 27 November 2016 in Utrecht

Golfclub Anderstein is a beautiful golf course with 27 holes. Although not located on the countryside the arrival has a rural feel to it. The old style clubhouse is beautiful and the practice facilities are very nice. One area of the course has narrow holes with lots of trees, while the other area has open holes with lots of...

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 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...

Golfclub Houtrak - Course # 29

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...

Prise d’eau Golf - Course # 28

Written on 4 November 2016 in Noord-Brabant

Prise d’eau surprised us, in a good way… Placed in a unique landscape with a creative course architecture makes for an fun round. Some holes are outlined with trees, other are wide and open with nice views of the other holes. Undulated fairways and greens challenge you by very often putting the ball below your...

Haarlemmermeersche Golfclub - Course # 26

Written on 13 October 2016 in Noord-Holland

Personally… I don’t know why they have trees on a golf course. Or water for that matter. Or why not make all the greens flat as billiard tables and remove the sand traps. Because seriously, I’d still have a hard time on a course like that. The Haarlemmermeersche, however, has all of that tricky stuff...
