GOLF

Old Course – A Course to be Enjoyed

“Fruit trees, rhododendrons, old trees and placid lakes: Carefully designed to blend into the lush parkland, with lots of natural water hazards, this 5912 m long course is one of the ten most beautiful golf courses in Germany.”

This is how an independent jury rated it in the German “Golf Magazin.” The Old Course was also awarded the title “Premier European Golf Course.”

Hole 1

Aim your drive left of the big tree (advanced golfers hit the ball over the tree on the left side of the fairway). The second stroke is key. This is where the water can be a problem, so stay to the left. There are several crests before the green, so it seems closer than it really is. The green is hard to figure out, so the putt is usually what determines the score.

Hole 3

Aim for the big bush on the right side of the fairway when driving. Good players can hit the ball onto the green with two strokes; everyone else should try to propel the ball to the end of the fairway. This is a slow green, and a bogey is a good score for most golfers.

Length 410 362 323
Par 4 4 4

Hole 4

The vegetation on the island is downhill, so many players choose a club that is too long. The distance is less than most people estimate. This green is tricky to judge too, so take your time.
Champ (white) Men (yellow) Women (red)
Length 155 135 117
Par 3 3 3
Platz-Handicap (Hcp.) 17 17 17

Hole 5

You can leave your driver in the bag for this hole. Better players would drive into the water. The best strategy is to hit the ball onto the right side of the fairway, and then aim for the left side on the second stroke. Skilled chips and putts are essential to a good score on this one.

Hole 6

The tee box is narrow, and it is easy to hit the ball into the water on the right or out of bounds. This is why you should try to drive onto the left side of the fairway. If you can’t make very long shots, you would be well advised to take four strokes to reach the green. Two putts, and a bogey is a good score on this hole.

Hole 7

Concentrate when driving, because you have to get the ball onto the fairway! The less risky way is to land the ball just before the ditch with the second stroke and then to pitch it expertly onto the green. A bogey is good here, too.
Champ (white) Men (yellow) Women (red)
Length 387 342 302
Par 4 4 4
Platz-Handicap (Hcp.) 5 5 5

Hole 8

The position of the flag is decisive, because the green slopes steeply from back to front. Golfers who can’t accurately shoot for the flag should hit the ball short rather than long. This is a slow green, particularly where it goes uphill.
Champ (white) Men (yellow) Women (red)
Length 174 161 145
Par 3 3 3
Platz-Handicap (Hcp.) 13 13 13

Hole 9

Aim your drive left of the plum tree on the right side of the fairway. Advanced players can even drive over the ditch. The green is attainable from either position, so you have a good chance of making par on this hole.

Length 351 303 261

Hole 10

This hole is just too straight for some players! The trick is to keep the ball on the fairway. On the left there is some deep rough, and on the right the woods are waiting to snatch your ball out of bounds. Aim for the flag. It is not too hard to get onto the green with the second stroke, meaning that par is within reach.

Hole 11

If you use the same club as on the 8th hole, you will like the results. When the flag is towards the back of the green, the putt is usually slow.

Hole 12

On this hole it is better to be safe than sorry. It is essential to drive the ball onto the fairway. The second stroke is key. The best strategy is to play it a little shorter. Then the third stroke will be about 100 m. The green is much longer than it appears and is tricky to judge.

Length 483 468 423

Hole 13

Good golfers choose the “tiger line” and drive onto the green. For everyone else: Aim for the flag. When hitting onto the green, aim left to avoid the water. Anyone can make par, and advanced golfers have a good chance at a birdie.
Champ (white) Men (yellow) Women (red)
Length 302 268 236
Par 4 4 4

Hole 14

The best strategy is to drive just short of the bridge, then hit the ball over the water, and then pitch it expertly onto the green. The trees behind the green create the illusion that the distance is less than it really is. A bogey is a good score.
  Champ (white) Men (yellow) Women (red)
Length 386 341 306
Par 4 4 4
Platz-Handicap (Hcp.) 8 8 8

Hole 15

The drive is tricky any way you look at it. Less experienced players may well hit the ball into the water, while everyone else has a good chance of landing out of bounds on the left side. If you can get the ball onto the green with three strokes, that is a good performance. A word of warning when putting: The green looks like it slopes, but in reality it is flat.

Length 379 339 299

Hole 16

This one is dangerous, too: Hit to the left and the ball will be out of bounds, but hit too far to the right and the water hazard will be happy to swallow its next victim! On this hole you have to drive onto the fairway. Once again, the second stroke is decisive. Try to get the ball precisely in the center of the fairway. More advanced players usually get onto the green with the third stroke; for others, reaching the green in four strokes is satisfactory. This green is easy, so a good putt can help your score.

Hole 17

This hole goes slightly uphill, so it is wise to have an extra club. The green is larger than it appears, and putts tend to be fast.
Champ (white) Men (yellow) Women (red)
Length 147 133 111
Par 3 3 3
Platz-Handicap (Hcp.) 18 18 18

Hole 18

This one looks narrower than it really is. If you aim your drive towards the right side of the fairway, nothing can go wrong. Then the second stroke should go more to the left. The pitch onto the green is decisive on this hole, and precision is key. If you don’t get onto the green, the ball will land in a bunker or behind a majestic pine tree. Neither of which is particularly desirable. The green slopes down from the right to the left even more so than it appears. Par on this hole is a great way to finish the round.
