You might have read it, since 1st May I’m member of Bachgrund Golf Club, outside of Frankfurt. On Friday I played my first 18 holes as a member – I played there before but that’s three years ago.
Bachgrund features 27-holes, a 18-hole links-style championship course and a 9-hole more parkland-style course. “Nessi”, the 18-hole course is a very interesting course with narrow fairways, lots of water, many bunkers in play and requires both intelligent course strategy and straight drives. It’s a tough one I’d say. Almost impossible to end the round with the very same ball you started with.
On Friday I was grouped together with three Korean gentlemen, all members of the club, apparently very knowledgeable in terms of course details – a shame they didn’t speak any German or English. So it was a rather quiet round…
I really like the course setting although I’m not a big links fan, but the course is tricky and challenging. I will report as regular as possible. Tomorrow I have a 9:20 tee time.
