Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments Course plays long, 6116m from yellow tees, and wind is nearly always a factor. Beware of rough. At times that can be links-styled. Greens are excellent and fast (for Holland). Course is technical and difficult. If you play well here, you can play well anywhere. Par3 14th is a fignature hole. Scenery might be a bit dull on the rest, but players sure will appreciate it.
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments Well maintained. I played 3 motnhs in autumn/winter. Only few times winter greens. Course is a polder course so in wet conditiones expect some plugged lies.
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments Friendly staff.
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments good driving range and excellent chipping and putitng facilities. Pro-shop seemed smallish and mostly closed. clubhouse is nice and food is good.
