Crayestein Golf

2-star: Reasonably okay course - if better courses not available.

Est. 1988

Crayestein Golf: home to the Golfclub de Merwelanden, this tree-lined and open parkland layout enjoys a local following, although is not counted amongst Netherlands top-rated courses. Tucked into five separate areas, the layout is criss-crossed by roads, rail and power lines.

Tight fairways, out-of-bounds on several holes and the threat of water hazards in front of or behind the greens (and sometimes both!), makes for a challenging round ... especially on a first outing. Worth a visit if you have some time to spare and want to work on your game.
