After-work 9 holes in the middle of a race course

On Friday, what a treat, I left the office a bit earlier than usual (at around 5pm) and headed to the nearest golf course. That’s a 9-hole course in the middle of a race track, which is really kinda cool to golf where on other weekends there are hundreds of spectators betting on horses. Nobody betted on me on Friday, that’s for sure…

The course belongs to the ‘Golf absolute’ course management company and therefore is free for me to play. Obviously it’s not a full length course but from an aesthetical and fairway/green quality point of view this place is absolutely top-notch. The Frankfurt skyline marks the backdrop on most holes, the turf is in perfect condition, and after all, you are playing golf in the middle of a race course… I found this very impressive.

Impressive as well was the heat! Teeing off at around 6.30pm, there were still 35°C/95°F. Boy, was I melting…

The course features 5 par-3 holes and 4 par-4 holes, therefore ends up at par 62 for the 18 holes. The hole layout is not overly spectacular and rather flat as you can imagine but the overall setting is as nice as it can be in such location. Definitely worth a round if you are around – especially in case you are Golf absolute member – otherwise it could get a bit expensive (110 EUR on weekends for 18 holes – par 62 that is…).
