This professional-level course was designed by the world-famous Jack Nicklaus. No wonder the European Tour visits regularly. But it comes at a price – the green fee costs up to €150. The profile of the head of a wild boar not only adorns the logo but can also be found in the shape of an island green. It’s one of a kind! Plus, there’s a lot of water, old trees and fast greens. It’s an exceptional resort. This course is located way up north, close to the Baltic Sea and nestles in wonderful parkland countryside. If you don’t hit it straight off the tee, you’ll definitely have a problem. The stately club house is fantastic. As well as a castle, there are picturesque views of the vineyards. Golfers have to tackle a variety of challenges – including slopes, downhill and uphill sections. Old trees, narrow fairways and challenging slopes are what define this parkland course to the south of Hamburg. And it’s always in top condition. You want to hit the links? Go ahead! This genuine links course is on the North Sea island of Sylt, complete with wind, dunes and 96 deep pot bunkers. And it also features a state-of-the-art 5-star hotel. Multiple water hazards, strategically placed bunkers and very undulating greens define this course, which was completely redesigned in 2013. Also, it’s kept in excellent condition and there’s a wonderful view from the club’s terrace. The epitome of tradition. The club has been in existence since 1906, making it one of the oldest in Germany. The parkland course is the classic place to play golf in Hamburg and has been named Germany’s best many times by the golfing press. You’d think we’re on the coast of Scotland. But we’re not. WinstonLinks plays just like a traditional links course, even though it’s not by the sea. Since its opening, Bernhard Langer and Co. have often played here. It’s a really awesome course. First place goes to Golf Club Föhr. Founded in 1925, it’s a club with a very long tradition. But it’s only been in the last few years that the expansion and redesign of the island course has turned it into one of the most exciting in Germany. It really is amazing and well worth a journey.
