Golf Club Gut Lärchenhof: As you pass through the gated entrance and park alongside the hi-end Porches and Mercedes, you'll detect an unmistakable air of affluence and grandeur about Gut Lärchenhof. In the functional yet opulent clubhouse you'll be shown to your top of the range golf cart, as you prepare to tee it up on Jack Nicklaus's Signature design ... his only one in Germany.
This top-rated championship golf course exudes a relatively open feel. The tree-lined and open parkland layout contains plenty of stylish bunkering and a goodly array of water hazards ... as you might expect from the Golden Bear.
