Royal Homburger Golf Club


3-star: a good golf course with many fine features.
   Royal Homburger Golf Club Est. 1899

Where2Golf says: 

Royal Homburger Golf Club's New (or Röderwiesen) course is laid out at the foot of the Taunus mountain range, just north of Frankfurt. The tallest peak in the range is the 878 m Grosser Feldberg.

This relatively short layout, measuring 4,319 metres (4723 yards) from the back tees, is characterised by rather narrow fairways, requiring a precise game and clear course management. A mix of doglegging holes, ponds and strategically placed bunkers will also require good strategic thinking to "pick" your way around this testing layout. Even for professionals, a good-scoring game at Royal Homburger permits few mistakes.

Worth a special mention is the short, drivable downhill par-4 16th, with its 35 m drop. From the tee the view stretches to the Frankfurt skyline, and includes the Spessart (woodpecker) and Odenwald forests.

Did you know?

Located in the spa town of Bad Homburg just north of Frankfurt, Royal Homburger (1899) is Germany's third oldest golf club, behind Wiesbadener (1893) and Berlin-Wannsee GC (1895). The club is one of four golf clubs located outside the Commonwealth of Nations that received its 'Royal' prefix from a British monarch. The Royal title was conferred on Homburger GC in 2013 by Queen Elizabeth II, in recognition of the patronage given to the club by Queen Victoria's cousin (George, Duke of Cambridge) and her son Edward, Prince of Wales (later Edward VII). The four non-Commonwealth 'Royal' golf clubs are: Curragh (Ireland), Dublin (Ireland), Homburger (Germany) and Marianske Lazne (Czech Republic).

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...
