Where2Golf says: 

Golfclub Broekpolder: In this quiet, natural and unmistakably Dutch environment, you'd never guess you were so close to the bustling city of Rotterdam and the largest dock facilities in Europe (at Europoort). Broekpolder stands out as the flag-bearer for good quality golf in this area, where other contenders are in relatively short supply.

The pleasant front nine, with views over surrounding reed beds and extensive marshland, acclimatises you to the hallmarks of this layout: narrowish fairways, good bunkering, smallish greens and a generally excellent standard of upkeep. On the back-nine water comes dangerously into play at the tight par-4 11th, and then stays with you until the (slightly) uphill par-4 17th. Although the original landscape was about as flat as you can get in Holland, Broekpolder include some modest slopes, especially on the closing holes.

With plenty of water hazards in the mix, occasional dog-legging holes, and others tightly lined by good-sized trees, you have all the makings of an enjoyable and testing round - guaranteed to give your overall game a good workout. If the wind is blowing, which is not unusual here, then your workout could turn into something altogether more challenging.

Did you know?

Not unsurprisingly Broekpolder has adopted a frog ("kikker" in Dutch) as its club emblem - the surrounding reed beds are full of them, particularly audible in the summer months.

Broekpolder has hosted several top-level national events, not least the Ladies Dutch Open (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Broekpolder).

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...
