Golfclub Budersand Sylt

5-star : simply the best - golf courses don’t get much better than this.
   Golfclub Budersand Sylt Est. 2008

Where2Golf says: 

Golfclub Budersand Sylt, part of the impressive Budersand Resort, is home to one of the top-rated and finest championship golf courses in continental Europe. Laid out in a classic duneland environment beside the sea, the course delivers everything you'd expect from a true links layout.

Generally maintained to a high standard, this excellent open links layout contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes. Surrounded by rolling sand dunes, the well-spaced holes are complete with rippling fairways, revetted bunkers, slick run-off areas and occasional winding water ditches (at 16, 17 and 18). Definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game, and well worth going out of your way to play.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLES: the bunkerless par-3 13th and "wee demon" par-3 15th holes form part of the build-up to an excellent finishing stretch at Budersand.
