Golf & Country Club Lauswolt

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

Est. 1964

Golf & Country Club Lauswolt; tucked away in a quiet corner of Friesland, you'll find the predominantly woodland golf course of Lauswolt. Laid out in two anticlockwise nine-hole loops, it is arguably the best of the country's more northerly courses, together with Drentse "De Gelpenberg" (50 km away to the south-east). Both these courses were originally the work of celebrated English golf course architect Frank Pennink.

Dating fron 1964, Pennink's original 9-hole layout was mainly played through the trees. The relatively small greens are typically defended by a single strategically-placed front bunker. Small fairway bunkers also occasionally threaten from the tee, but the main intimidation factor comes from the tight avenues of trees lining the not overly wide fairways.

The extension to 18-holes by Pennink's one-time partner Donald Steel, pushed the course out into more typically open Frisian landscape. Here ponds comes into play, not least at the short par-4 4th, with its near "island" green almost entirely surrounded by water.
