Golfbaan Stippelberg


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   Golfbaan Stippelberg Est. 2009

Where2Golf says: 

Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses. The layout occupies an area that was originally a mix of open heath and farmland, and which sits below the old Stippelberg estate and adjacent to a more recent sand and gravel quarry.

Following the recent penchant for what are best described as "inland-links style" courses, Stippelberg's front-nine has many heathland overtones, with water only coming in at the island-green short par-4 9th. Considerably more water is in play on the more testing back-nine loop, where small lakes flank several of the holes. Somewhat unusually the layout starts with two par-3s in the first three holes ... between them sits a relatively tight par-5.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLE: the short par-4 9th closes out the front-nine loop with a testing approach shot played to an island green ... plenty of water awaits anything not hitting the large green or its attendant small front-right bunker.

Did you know?

The original Stippelberg estate, on the northern border of the eponymous golf course, originally comprised large areas of open heathland and sand drifts. Some areas of sand dunes in this natural preserve resembled 'dots' in the landscape - hence the name Stippelberg ("dotted mound"). Until the end of the 19th century the heath dominated, but gradually saw the growth of Douglas fir and Japanese larch, which gave the area a much more wooded character.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
