The Palmer course at Golf Club Bad Sarrow (formerly known as Sporting Club Berlin Scharmützelsee) is one of three contrasting 18-hole layouts at this top-quality golf resort. Laid out by seven-time major champion Arnold Palmer, the course is regarded as an easier-going option than its links-style and heavily bunkered sibling, which was designed by six-time major champion Nick Faldo.
The Palmer course plays through a pleasantly tree-lined environment, where a mix of straightaway and doglegging holes play to large bunker-defended greens. The final green sits in front of the clubhouse terrace. With plenty of woodland separating each hole, many members regard the back-nine of the Palmer as their favourite nine at Bad Saarow.
