Golf- und Land-Club Köln


4+ (4 gold): one of our top-rated 4-star courses, worthy of 4½ stars.
   Golf- und Land-Club Köln Est. 1906

Where2Golf says: 

Golf & Land Club Köln: Far from the madding crowd in a quiet forested setting, here you will find one of the best championship golf courses in Germany. Originally established in 1906, the club moved to east of the River Rhine in 1952, to a new course laid out by the renowned German designer Bernhard von Limburger.

This tree-lined parkland layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. The course is characterised by gently doglegging par-4s, strategically placed bunkers guarding smallish greens and meandering fairway-crossing streams. A must play if you are in the area.

Did you know?

Golf- und Land-Club Köln in Refrath has hosted several top level tournaments including European Tour and European Senior Tour events (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Koln, Refrath).

Following the relocation of the club in 1952 from Marienburg on the west side of the River Rhine to Refrath on the east side, a number of members chose not to move, preferring to stay with their nine-hole course. This original home of the Golf- und Land-Club Köln is now called Marienburger Golf Club-Köln.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
