WinstonGolf (Open course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 2001

The Open 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 enjoyably testing 18-hole Open course.

Unlike its open links-style stablemate, the WINSTONopen course is a tree-lined and open parkland layout. It too lays down a technically demanding challenge. Laid out on undulating terrain, the gently rolling fairways lead you to individually sculpted, well protected greens.

Water comes into play on the opening two holes, a tight par-5 followed by the very testing second, which doglegs around a small lake. The closing pair also bring water into play, as does the par-3 7th, arguably the pick of the short holes, with a stony brook to be cleared in front of the green.
