Golf Resort Semlin am See a great golf course for walkers
SEMLIN AM SEE, GERMANY - It’s a fair question to put to a golf club manager, asking whether or not people prefer to walk or ride during their round at the course.
“We have five golf carts,” Janine Lauersdorf, manager at Golf Resort Semlin am See, told me. “We’re hoping to get five more by the end of the year.”
Five golf carts at a 27-hole golf course?
Yeah, it’s safe to say that walking is the preferred means of conveyance at this golf course, about an hour’s drive outside Berlin. There are legions of pull charts available, and still some old-schoolers, yours truly included, opt to throw their golf bag over a shoulder and set out.
This is a lovely golf course to walk, flat and relatively straight (though with a few trudges between holes). You finish a round of 18 or 27 holes feeling like you got a workout.
This is an accessible golf course the favors conservative play, but rewards some aggressive choices like taking driver on some holes and flirting with trouble - either lateral water or penal waste areas - in order to get a better look at an approach to the green.
The greens themselves are, for the most part, in good shape, some a bit firmer than others, none with any huge changes in slope. Putts roll pretty true here.
The fairways are also well-conditioned and narrow, many of them having at least a slight dogleg that demands a bit more thought from the tee.
There are many good golf holes here, if not many truly memorable ones.
All in all, a recommended play.
