Where2Golf says: 

The Garlstedter Heide (in English Garlstedt Heath) course at Club zur Vahr is one of Germany's well-rated championship courses. This tree-lined parkland layout should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge and usually good upkeep contribute to the appeal of this well-crafted and pleasantly testing design. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.
