B.D.Driebergen, The Netherlands

Je bent hier echt gast! Een zeer prettige golfclub. Een hoge attentie waarde van het personeel. Een niet te moeilijke maar wel leuke baan. Wij hadden een buggy, maar is ook eenvoudig om zelf of met een caddy te lopen.

S.T.Gennep, The Netherlands

You'll enjoy playing here! Excellent course to suit all with reasonable golf ability. It’s very scenic with quite a bit of water so you do have to hit straight ..or be good at fishing!

F.G.Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom

We had 2 Caddies at a cost of R160 each. Well worth it. Greens were in excellent condition as was the overall course. You do need to book as it is a very busy Members’ Club.
