5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 1930

Eindhovensche Golf: There are few better examples of a wooded heathland golf course than you'll find here at Eindhovensche. The favourable initial impression created by the lovely thatched-roof clubhouse is mirrored in Harry Colt's masterly design. Another of the gems in Harry Colt's "Dutch collection," which also includes Royal Haagsche, Hilversum, Kennemer and Utrecht-De Pan.

The two nine-hole loops comprise excellently crafted holes, each hole individually routed through the tranquility of this large and impressive woodland area. Good-width fairways, some flat, others more undulating, lead you to well-defended but not overly large greens. Staying out of the trees and hitting the putting surfaces in regulation is the key to scoring well here.

Nicely elevated tee-boxes on several holes provide an excellent view of the challenges ahead. You'll not be required to hit blind tee-shots over hills, but there are some excellent dog-legging holes where shaping your tee-shots will serve you well.

Eindhovensche exudes all the character of the Surrey/Berkshire heathland gems, from where Colt drew much of his inspiration as a designer. Although part of the course skirts around a small lake (Galgenven), there aren't any holes that sit directly alongside the lake. Barring a few notable exceptions, Colt's designs rarely incorporate big water features, even where they occur naturally. With very little water in play, just a smaller pond at the par-5 17th, Eindhoven is perfectly set up for a wonderful golfing journey through a rather enchanting forest.
