Dating from 1930, Eindhoven was designed by Harry Colt, and is one of the famous ‘Old Nine’ courses that for so long defined golf in The Netherlands
Eindhoven is a heathland course and plays through dense forest with a rolling sand base- perfect for golf.
The course is eminently walkable as there is little elevation change of consequence- just rumpled fairways framed by heather, bunkers and lots of trees!
The clubhouse is a classic! It has a traditional thatched roof that instantly identifies the property
Eindhoven has hosted a number of championships over the years including 6 Dutch Opens, and is currently regarded as one of the top 5 courses in The Netherlands
Our group had perfect golfing weather- warm and sunny- and enjoyed the course immensely
Notable holes include:
- hole 2, a short par 4 that demands a decision off the tee
- hole 3, a mid length par 3 in a glorious heathland setting
- hole 11, an uphill par 3 to a semi blind green protected by bunkers and mounds
- hole 13, a short dogleg par 4 with the tightest of tee shots
- hole 16, a nice par 3 with a breathtaking background- the view over the lake to the clubhouse is gorgeous!
- hole 17, a winding par 5 which demands a decision for the 2nd shot when water and trees threaten..
- hole 18, a strong par finishing hole with the magnificent clubhouse as a background
Eindhoven is a must for any golfing tour of The Netherlands.
And whilst the land does not have the same movement as de Pan, it is neverthess a lovely site for golf and a quality course
