Leave A35 just south of Strasbourg centre at exit 5 direction Baggersee / Illkirch North. Follow Illkirch, but at traffic lights follow direction Strasbourg Neuhof, rather than Illkirch-centre. Follow this road for approximately .4 km until roundabout at which golf is indicated. Immediately after roundabout take a very sharp right turn to golf.
Golf Club Strasbourg: This is the the oldest golf club around Strasbourg (by quite a big margin), however the splendour of the original setting has been slightly compromised by modern road developments and electricity distribution.
However, a bit of traffic noise and a few unsightly pylons should not rule out spending some enjoyable hours playing the Red-White-Yellow combinations of this 27-hole layout. Although the White-Red combination is apparently used for major competitions, the White-Yellow combination seems to fit together the best and involves 18-holes in a relatively open and flattish landscape.
Water is only a factor on a few holes on the White course, but also comes into play on the much tigther and more tree-lined Red course (which occupies its own small domaine across the road). Definitely deserving a special mention are the greens - large, fast and true - a great place to put your putting to the test.
Visitors welcome on weekdays; no outside visitors on weekends.
Must book in advance. Maximum handicap: 35. Proof of handicap required.
