The original 9-hole course at Geijsteren Golf and Country Club was a Donald Steel and Frank Pennink production that made its golfing debut in 1974. When more land became available, the layout was extended in two phases to a full 18 holes.

Four new holes were added in 1983, followed by an additional “five water holes” when the course extension was completed two years later. In more recent times, Michiel van der Vaart of Jol Golf Design has been engaged in renovation work here.

Routed through woodland, the holes at Geijsteren are handsomely framed by mature trees lining either side of the playing corridors and that fairway definition holds true until the 14th, where water hazards then present the greatest challenge for the remainder of the round.

The course played an important part in the development of professional golf in the Netherlands, hosting the first national match play championships in 1988, as all tournaments in the country had been held as stroke play events until then.

Description: Founded in 1974, Geijsteren Golf and Country Club started out with a nine-hole course, designed by Donald Steel and Frank Pennink, which was expanded to 18 holes in the 1980s. Rating: 4 out of 6 Reviews: 1

Really enjoyed playing here a couple of years ago. Didn't know anything about the course beforehand, so it was a pleasant surprise.

One or two of the tree-lined holes would not be out of place at the Hilversumsche, and the greens were nice to putt on - not crazy undulations but interesting slopes to contend with.

I also found it quite a tranquil place for a Sunday round - not sure if this is because it wasn't busy that day, or a sense of seclusion created by the routing. Perhaps a bit of both.

The course is a bit let down by the newer holes - the continuity is interrupted - but they are still decent enough. Scrapes 4 balls for me and worth another visit. BB
