3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1899

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 golf club is one of very few outside the Commonwealth of Nations (formerly British Commonwealth) to have received its "Royal" prefix at the prerogative of a British monarch. These non-Commonwealth "royals" include: Curragh (Ireland), Dublin (Ireland), Homburger (Germany), Mariánské Lázně (Czech) and Bled (Slovenia).

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).
