   Quellness Golf Resort (Porsche course) Est. 1989

Where2Golf says: 

The Quellness Golf Resort Bad Griesbach, with five 18-hole courses, is split between two large areas to the north and south of the town of Bad Griesbach. To the south you will find the championship Beckenbauer course (a European Tour course) and its "little brother", the Porsche course. To the north of the town, and each with their own clubhouse, are the much revered Brunnwies layout, as well as the Uttlau and Lederbach courses. Here you will also find the resort's "Golfodrome," which is home to three 9-hole courses (Engled, Jagl & Pfeiffer), a 6-hole course and the resort's Golf Academy.

The Porsche course at Quellness Golf Resort is located directly adjacent to the Beckenbauer course. In a "little brotherly" sense it ideally complements the longer and tougher Beckenbauer (which has regularly hosted European Tour events). Wider fairways help to create a less intimidating feel, but there's still plenty of water and stylish bunkering to be avoided.

Occupying similar terrain, the Porsche (formerly known as the Mercedes-Benz course!) contains many excellent holes. The good-length par-4 4th is especially interesting; it doglegs to the left alongside the river Rott with a challenging second shot to a green protected by a stream. Also posing a special challenge is the peninsula-green at the par-3 13th, and the par-4 16th and 18th holes, both with water unnervingly in play.

Where2Golf spotlights

The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
