5-star : simply the best - golf courses don’t get much better than this.
   Bernardus Est. 2018

Where2Golf says: 

Bernardus, a recent addition to top-level championship golf in the Netherlands, is set to join the ranks of the country's more venerated inland layouts. The likes of Eindhoven and Utrechtse "De Pan", which also permit outside visitor play, have ruled the roost for many years ... now there is a new kid on the block ... and one that's already making a big impact.

Accessible on a day ticket basis the golf course is set in quiet rural countryside next to the village of Cromvoirt. The two out-and-back nine-hole loops flow seamlessly through three parcels of land ... where once corn grew, an open sandy heath has been created. Plenty of gorse, heather and Scots pine trees have been planted on low rippling mounds to frame the always good-width fairways. Water hazards and rustic-edged bunkering combine to provide plenty of golfing challenge, while the large run-off areas around the greens and the "interwoven" teeing areas have been masterfully crafted by designer Kyle Phillips.

Around the often large and subtly sloping greens all manner of humps, hollows, run-offs and catchment areas will delight heathland (and links) golf aficionados. On the par-4 2nd and in front of the greens at the par-4 9th, par-4 14th and par-5 18th, water ditches come into play; be aware these ditches are wider and deeper than you might at first think. Amongst a wonderfully varied collection of excellent par-3s, the 8th and 17th require tee-to-green carries over water. The back-nine contains more dog-legging holes than on the front, and arguably greater variety ... as should be the case.

With its excellent course and practice facilities, huge "elliptic" clubhouse, onsite lodging, full array of country club facilities and day-ticket access for non-members, Bernardus ticks all the boxes. The popularity of this modern, high-end facility is all but guaranteed ... as the literature says, a place where "great golf and memories" go hand-in-hand.

Bernardus takes its name from a winery of the same name, located in Carmel Valley, California. The winery cultivates premier class wines, and introduced the first tasting rooms to the Carmel Valley area. The owner of the Bernardus golf course, and 50% owner of the winery, is Robert van der Wallen, a leader in the field of loyalty marketing. His partner in the winery is Bernardus Marinus "Ben" Pon, a fellow Dutchman who took part in the 1972 Munich Olympics (clay pigeon shooting) and became a professional sports car racer.

The golf clubhouse and Lodge facilities at Bernardus in Cromvoirt include a fully equipped gym, sauna, tennis smashcourt and a swimming pool.

Bernardus will host the (KLM) Dutch Open Championship from 2020-22.

Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park.
