The 18-hole course is a (golf) oasis in the middle of the Ruhr area. The first nine holes spread over a hilly terrain, framed by coniferous and deciduous forest and offer views on the open fields. Because of partly very narrow aisles, the fairways call for a precise game. Seven of the nine new holes are situated at the bend of the Ruhr. They offer a panoramic view over the Ruhr landscape with forested riverside mountains, river, view on the "Platte" and in the direction of the "Villa Hügel."

Known for its relaxed atmosphere Oefte also offers competive players a great test. Both Jack Nicklaus and Bernhard Langer have played the course. After Jack played here he went on to win the Open Championship in 1978 the next week. Today some of Germany´s best amateurs and teaching professionals come here to compete. Since 2015 Haus Oefte is the home of the North Rhine-Westphalian Team Championship Willy Schniewind. In 2017 and 2018 Haus Oefte hosted the H&H Golf PGA Club Professional Series tournaments.

Essen Golf Club Oefte eV

I was on 16.8.17, on a Golffrunde in the Essen golf club house Oefte pleased. I played the place two years ago and remembered it well. After 9 holes I ended the round prematurely. The cut on the fairways, the semi-rough and rough were in no well-maintained condition. On several of the greens, putting was affected by a variety of earth piles (probably by earthworms). The joy of the game was very limited! To the excuse, however, it must also be said that the rain of the last days had not done the place well.
For me, however, 70 Euro green fee for this place are a proud price. I will not play this place again.

Claim and reality

We had the 4/23/2016 booked for Saturday at 09.30 by phone green fees.
Since weekends but can only be played accompanied by a member, (which was not known to us) we only need to inform the Caddy Master by phone, we would like to play.
We were then greeted very end of January and could play yet.
Greenfee 70.00 euros The first 9 holes are quite hilly, some narrow lanes that make a precise games is necessary.
Highlight sure the web 9, towards the castle with restaurant, with a Wassehindernis front of the green.
The second 9 run more precisely, are not particularly spectacular.
Except the 17, par 3 with water hazard.
Striking is not always good signs.
The state of the square was not satisfactory.
Different mown fairways, around the green are first or second cut not recognized or may not exist.
Claim (to the clubs to itself provides) and reality do not match.
Noteworthy: Players with a membership card WITHOUT hologram pay 15.00 Euro surcharge.

Scenic nice landscaped space. The signage is patchy because of what sometimes quite long distances zwoschen the fairways is disturbing. The first 8 holes are quite hilly, 11 to 17 are very flat near the Ruhr.
