WinstonGolf (Open course)

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

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.

Tournaments:
European Tour: 2021 marks the 50th and last season of the world renowned European Tour, launched in April 1972 at the Spanish Open. From 2022 the Tour will be sponsored by Dubai-based global supply chain and ports operator DP World, and will be known as the DP World Tour.

South African Open: December 2021 events in South Africa have again been impacted by the Covid pandemic. The South African Open (Dec 2-5) will no longer be played as a DP World Tour event, and the Alfred Dunhill Championship (Dec 9-12) has been cancelled.

Who's Who:
Bernhard Langer: at age 64, Langer collected a record sixth Charles Schwab Cup, the only player to have won the season-long points chase more than twice. He also topped the PGA Tour Champions money-list for the 11th time out of a possible 13 since 2008.

Carlota Ciganda: the five-time Solheim Cup star was delighted to record a fourth Ladies European Tour win in her home national championship, the Ladies Spanish Open.

Lee Elder: Trailblazer, Ryder Cup player, four-time PGA Tour winner and eight-time Senior PGA Tour winner, Lee Elder died on November 28, aged 87. In 1975 he became the first African American golfer to play in the Masters tournament, and in so doing provided one of the pivotal moments in the history of professional golf.
