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.

Did you know?

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.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.
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...
