Twentsche Golfclub

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1926

Twentsche Golfclub: originally located between Enschede and Hengelo, and now located between Hengelo and Almelo, Twentsche Golfclub is home to yet another of the Netherland's very enjoyable parkland layouts. Although the club and its original 9-hole course date from 1926, this much newer 18-hole course was laid out in the late-1990s by Irish course architect Tom Macauley.

Like the neat bungalow-style clubhouse, the course is a relatively modern creation. The relatively straightforward front-nine exudes a distinctly more "open" feel, in contrast to the later holes. You'll still need to take care to avoid the liberal scattering of trees large and small, which provide good definition to the generally good-width fairways. Water also puts in brief appearances, not least at the very good par-4 8th and 9th holes. From the par-3 11th the course takes on a distinctly more tree-lined feel, with the par-5 12th a candidate for the "Best woodland golf holes of Europe" (if anyone should write such a book!).

The original generally flat terrain, has been improved by some modest earthmounding on the layout's more open sections, with solid bunkering and occasional water hazards also in the mix. The lack of a fairway watering system is possibly to blame when the fairways occasionally fall behind the quality of the greens. Putting on Twentsche's excellent and sloping greens is one of the highlights here.

Did you know?

Twentsche Golfclub takes its name from the non-administrative region of Twente, a largely urbanised area within the Dutch province of Overijssel. The inhabitants of Twente predominantly live in its three largest cities of Enschede, Hengelo and Almelo. Twente was most probably named after the Tvihanti, an ancient Germanic tribe that settled in the area.
