Following programmes we offer in German:
EXTENSION – HAMBURG AT YOUR OWN PACE
Tue 10 May Honfleur, France – New Golf Barriere de Deauville
The first 18 holes of this course were sculpted out of the Norman landscape by Tom Simpson in 1929. Today, three 9-hole courses offer numerous bunkers and some very fast greens. The three 9-hole courses are combined depending on the season and wind direction.
Thu 12 May Portland, England – Dorset Golf Club
The highlands of Portland offer three sets of 9 holes. And it is not just their names – Lakeland, Parkland and Woodland – that differ. The spacious facility is designed as a loop and always starts directly from the clubhouse to wherever you finish.
Fri 13 May Dartmouth – Dartmouth Golf & Country Club (Additional course 1)
In the middle of the British highlands, an interesting golfing challenge awaits you. The 18 fairways on the parkland course lead over some highly varied terrain. This course therefore requires careful space management because your position may prove crucial to your result.
Mon 16 May Avonmouth (Bristol) – Celtic Manor Golf Club
This resort has 54 holes; the Twenty Ten Course (6,852 m in length) and one par 71 were created specially for the 2010 Ryder Cup, when the Europeans defeated the USA by one point. Visitors can experience the same feeling as the sporting greats.
Tue 17 May Milford Haven, Wales – Tenby Golf Club (Additional course 2)
Old, older, oldest. The club is proud of its 125-year history. It is particularly worth mentioning that only golf has ever been played on this piece of land. The links course runs directly alongside the Atlantic.
Wed 18 May Cobh, Ireland – Fota Island Golf Club
This club has 54 holes spread over three courses. The Deerpark Course has twice hosted the Irish Open tournament. The three courses have one thing in common: you should explore them using a Strokesaver, which is extremely helpful in managing the course.
Fri 20 May Dover, England – Prince’s Golf Club
The typical English dune landscape is the setting for this 27-hole links course. The untouched natural surroundings make the three sets of 9 holes another spectacular sight. Here, golf is celebrated in a very traditional manner.
