Rethmar links is a real links course, but not by the sea, but near Hannover. Arnold Palmer has created a real gem here. The course is very sporty and challenging, but good for any golfer. 4 out of 18 good holes stand out: 1 & 10 and 9 & 18, all 4 outstanding in design and difficult to play with a lot of water hazards. It is just fun to play this championchip layout and if you are looking for the right challenge, you should try the back tees. The club had suffered a bit a few years ago and was rather degenerate, but after new ownership (Rethmar belongs to Golf Gleidingen), the place has regained its former glory. Unfortunately, the clubhouse is a bit idiosyncratic and offers little comfort. Overall, a great course, which is definitely recommended. Tip: Rethmar is always in good condition and you can play all year round on summer greens.
