Course Review and Comments

A lot of money and goodwill is needed to make something of this course. But a smile here and there and lowering the premium price (most courses are cheaper, even Limburg G&CC which is in the top 100 out of the US is cheaper) would make up for some of it's shortcomings.
This just isn't a golf course, it's an obstacle course.

Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments The layout isn't very inspiring. You have to start on the 5th hole and finish on the 4th. It's built on such diverse land that you seem to be playing 3 or 4 different courses. The terrain is also just too hilly. This is more of an obstacle course than it is a golf course. I love undulation and some hills here and there are great. But this is just up and down and up again and down again ...
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments Greens were punctured in august at a time we have the best weather and the best competitions of the year.
Bunkers are all different sand, some even some mud/sand mixture, most just dust.
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments Very unfriendly both at the reception and at the bar.
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments Practice is abysmal, you have to hit into a pond, and you cannot use driver. Practice mats are just put there on the ground, they're bumpy and hard and ... just rubbish.
Course Overall Rating
Play Again No
Recommend No
