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.
