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.
