Review:

This one's definitely off the beaten track and so it has flown under my radar, which usually is quite sensitive to sandy courses. The marketing doesn't make much of that angle though and neither does the greenkeeping. But how many courses in Germany can lay a legitimate claim to either the links or heathland designation? There's a lot of heather in Northern Germany, but all of it fiercely protected from development, so I don't know how they got permission to build here. I suppose no one actually saw the sand before the pines were cleared. Be that as it may, it's a strong design on great land and if they could somehow tie the 18 holes together, perhaps by creating an out and back routing, they could export the course to Surrey. Cut down more trees, cultivate the heather - it's no secret how to rise up in the rankings. (UM)
