Maarten

I am a law student and I find myself playing way too little golf. I have held a 4 handicap but that number has doubled over the years, however I still get in the zone once in a while. The higher my scores got the more I became interested in golf course architecture, which you can enjoy no matter how bad you play. I am a member of The Rosendaelsche Golfclub, one of the oldest courses in the Netherlands. I am a great fan of Colt, Simpson and classic links and heathland courses in general and I always try to avoid dull resort courses at all costs. My all-time favourite course is a hard one: It's a close call between Royal Porthcawl and Ballybunion. If you want to play a hidden gem in a great environment: play Pennard or Furnas. Lastly I'd really like to play the Bandon courses sooner rather than later, but that is one of the charms of this game: There always remains so much golf history and so many wonderful courses to be explored!

Played all of the Killarney courses and the Killeen was the best by far. Had great fun. The holes by the lake are fantastic but I wasn't disappointed by the rest at all....
