Golfbaan Het Rijk van Nijmegen: With 45-holes of good quality golf on offer and excellent practice facilities, it's no surprise that Rijk van Nigmegen is a busy and popular golf venue - perfect for members, visitors and corporate clients.

The longer and stronger layout is the 18-hole Nijmeegse (Nijmegen) course, as opposed to the 27-hole Groesbeekse (Groesbeek) layout. The Nijmeegse is undulating in parts, flatter in others, and has generally good-width, well-bunkered fairways leading to equally well-bunkered and at times extravagantly sized greens.

To ensure that you don't have everything quite your own way, there are often small trees and bushes bordering the fairways, and you'll need to hit one or two blind tee shots and approaches on the more undulating parts of the course.

Het Rijk van Nijmegen is located just 3 km from the border with Germany. From the closing few holes, starting at the par-4 15th (Nijmegen course), you have a good view across the Dutch rural countryside and into Germany. These attractive views are also available, perhaps more so, from the Groesbeek course.

Although both the Nijmegen and Groesbeek layouts are neither overly dramatic nor too demanding, Rijk van Nijmegen offers a wealth of pleasantly enjoyable golf, and a very solid workout for your game. The club sometimes mixes nine holes from the Nijmegen course with nine from the Groesbeek, which creates six possible 18-hole combinations available to the club.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
