De Goese Golf

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1994

De Goese Golf: At the far end of a row of smart new houses (each with its own canal-side mooring) lies the relatively new golf facility of De Goese Golf. Although set in a classically flat Dutch landscape, there is a surprising amount of rolling undulation built into Donald Steel's well-crafted layout.

What's not surprising here at Goese Golf is the plentiful supply of natural water hazards - enough to support a large array of native birdlife (geese included). The abundant water supply also provides numerous opportunities to threaten your tee and approach shots. Generous width fairways allow a relatively uninhibited use of the driver on the longer holes. But all that water, supported by extensive bunkering, places a premium on accurate approach work to the greens.

From the very good back-nine, you clearly see the naturalness and true flatness of the surrounding countryside. The size of the nearby defensive water dykes is impressive and you'll probably see one or two sails and ships' funnels mysteriously floating along the horizon. Much tree planting around the course has yet to mature; as it does "The Goose" will continue to grow in stature and golfing challenge.

Golf Son Gual

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.

Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
