The 45-hole Waldsee Golf-Resort lies just outside the small town of Bad Waldsee in the Upper Swabia region of Baden-Württemberg. The Old course debuted in 1969 so it's twenty-eight years older (and 400 metres shorter) than the New course.
In 2009, nineteen years after Golfclub Lauterbach was formed, the club’s course was renovated to keep pace with the modern game. Set within a 250-acre property in the Vogelsberg region, this lovely layout’s now fit for purpose in the modern era.
Situated near the city of Kiel, Golf-Club Kitzeberg is one of Germany’s oldest clubs. Nearly a hundred years passed before the club’s original 9-hole course was doubled in size – just in time to celebrate Kitzberg’s centennial at the start of the new millennium.
Designed by Paul Krings and opened for play in 1988, the woodland course at Golfclub Schloss Maxlrain is artfully routed through stands of oak, spruce and fir trees within the grounds of the Renaissance Palace of Maxlrain, which dates back to the 19th century.
The Kurt Rossnecht-designed course at Golfclub Starnberg opened in 1988, two years after the club was formed. Starting and finishing with eminently birdieable par five holes, this layout gives golfers the chance to begin and end their round in some style.
Designed by Michael Pinner, former architect at Nicklaus Design, the Golf-Park Winnerod course is set out on rather hilly terrain to the north of Frankfurt, with terrific views of the surrounding woodland landscapes of Taunus and Vogelsberg.
Located less than half an hour’s drive north of Frankfurt city centre, the 18-hole layout at Bad Vilbeler Golfclub Lindenhof ends somewhat unusually with a par three hole which plays across water to a peninsula green in front of the clubhouse.
The Donald Harradine-designed Sonnenalp course at the Golf Resort Sonnenalp-Oberallgäu lies at one of the most southerly points on the map of Germany, close to the Austrian border, so expect to ski here rather than golf during the winter months.
Designed by Bernhard Langer, the Brunnwies course is one of six 18-hole layouts at the enormous Hartl Golf Resort at Bad Griesbach.
Münchener Golf Club dates back to 1910 but its current 27-hole golf facility is relatively modern. Eighteen Bernhard von Limburger holes were unveiled in 1964 and Kurt Rossknecht added another nine in 1996 before Perry Dye carried out a complete remodel a decade later.
