Hamburger Golf Club - Falkenstein

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 1906

Hamburger Golf Club - Falkenstein is home to a classic and very traditional golf course, typically regarded as one of the best layouts in continental Europe, and No.1 in Germany. Located on the edge of a large area of natural woodland, and just a kilometre from the banks of the River Elbe, this revered tree-lined heathland layout contains a wealth of wonderfully crafted, memorable and challenging holes.

There's plenty of heather on show here, bordering the predominantly tree-lined fairways. The mix of doglegging and straightaway holes attractively lace their way through quiet woodland avenues, inexorably heading to well-bunkered and subtly sloping greens. Falkenstein is definitely a course that will challenge your all-round game, and well worth going out of your way to play.
