as i mentioned in the course-tracking, i start to appreciate to come around and to play courses wherever i am. so i decided not only to play as many courses as possible in my home town but to go on golf vacation as often as achievable.
last year i made a wonderful trip to the north-eastern part of germany and stayed at the castle at lake fleesensee. there they have a beautiful country club with not less than 5 courses to play. and when i left, i said to myself: “such golf trips, you’ll do that every year from now on!”
a word and a blow, some days ago i booked my next golf trip for this year: one week golf hopping on the chic and sophisticated island of sylt in the north sea. it is called “the german hamptons” and everbody who’s been there always wants to come back. not only because of the golf facilities, but for sure because of the beauty of the nordic landscape and the other rich possibilities you have.
the “golf hopping” is a combined offer of the 3 golf courses they have on the island (honestly they have 4, but this is kind of a private one). next to the golfclub sylt and the marine golf club sylt, the budersand golf course is the newest and currently one of the 3 best courses in germany! that should be enough reason to go there and play! budersand is a truly links course and therefore one of few real scottish-looking courses in this part of europe. you bet, i’m already a bit afraid of the installed pot bunkers!
in early may i will fly to westerland, which is kind of the capitol of sylt and will live in a picturesque house in wenningstedt, right at the west beach. and boy, what will i play golf there!! i currently have no idea how often i can play, but 4 times is the minimum, i think! at least the beast budersand is going to be tamed twice… excited!! :)
