Golf Club Bad Saarow (Faldo course)

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1992

The Faldo course at Golf Club Bad Saarow (formerly known as Sporting Club Berlin Scharmützelsee) is the centrepiece of this top-quality golf resort. The open links-style design, crafted by Britian's six-time major champion, is supported by the also highly-rated (and easier-going) Palmer and Eby layouts.

The excellent links-style Faldo layout, with its open character and many pot bunkers (133 in all), contains a wealth of challenging holes. Links golf enthusiasts will enjoy the square-cut teeing grounds, rolling terrain, rippling mounds and relative absence of trees ( ... although there's plenty of woodland around the perimeter ... but no roads or housing). Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game in spades, and well worth going out of your way to play.
