Did you know?

Taking his family name from his German-born father Stefan, Alexander "Xander" Schauffele comes from an accomplished sporting family. His father could have competed at the Olympic Games in track and field, had it not been for a life-changing accident in his early-twenties. Amongst Xander's ancestors are two football (soccer) stars, who played at the highest club level in Germany and Austria.

After enjoying an excellent amateur career, which included wins in the California State High School Championship and California State Amateur Championship, Schauffele turned professional in 2015. After playing a full season on the second-tier Web.com Tour, he moved up to the full PGA Tour in 2017, finishing the year with two wins and the Rookie of the Year award.

Latest golf course reviews
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...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
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.
