Location

AMSTERDAMSE GOLF CLUB, AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS
Founded in 1934, it is one of the oldest clubs in the Netherlands; the typical characteristics of the course are water hazards with reeds.

KENNEMER GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB, ZANDVOORT, NETHERLANDS

The Kennemer Golf & Country Club is the oldest links course in the Netherlands (founded in 1910) and is often named among the most beautiful courses in the world.
The course is located just behind the sea in undulating dunes and consists of three sets of nine holes, namely the A-holes (Van Hengel course), the B-holes (the Pennink course) and the C-holes (the Colt course).
The courses are named after former executive and honorary member Mr. SJH van Hengel and golf architects Frank Pennink and Harry Colt.
The various combinations are all pretty tough and require accuracy.

ROYAL HAGUE GOLF & COUNTRY CLUB, 

The Royal Hague Golf Club, as it is known in English, is the oldest golf club in Holland and was founded in 1893 on linksland that was destroyed during World War II.
The club’s current course was actually designed by Harry Colt for a wealthy Dutch golfer in 1938, who then sold the layout to the homeless golf club in the late 1940’s.
The return takes shape in a bright and sporty plain designed around a 2,5-hectare lake.

GOLFBAAN DELFLAND, SCHIPLUIDEN, NETHERLANDS

Delfland is considered by many as the most sociable golf course in Holland!
