WinstonGolf (Links course)


4+ (4 gold): one of our top-rated 4-star courses, worthy of 4½ stars.
   WinstonGolf (Links course) Est. 2011

Where2Golf says: 

The Links course at WINSTONgolf: Set a few kilometres east of the Schweriner See (a large natural lake), here at WINSTONgolf you will find two excellent 18-hole courses and the Kranich (crane) 9-hole par-3 course. The David Krause designed Links course typically steals top honours, but don't ignore the also enjoyable and testing 18-hole Open course.

Hailed as one of the best new golf courses in northwestern Europe when it opened in 2011, WINSTONlinks is a big dimension golf course, modelled on British seaside layouts. Routinely putting the game's top professionals to the test, this open links-style design lays down a tough test for your all-round game. Penal rough, natural sandy hollows, small brooks and towering dunes provide a classic links feel to proceedings. Fast-running gently undulating fairways, pot bunkers and hard fast greens add to the demand for well-thought out course management and good shot-making.

WINSTONlinks was created amongst the lakes, rivers and woodland of Mecklenburg. Notwithstanding the absence of a breezy stretch of Scottish coastline, this exciting layout, with its many excellent golf holes, delivers a thorough challenge on an excellent links-style design.

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...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
