Where was Simon74 going?

I don't know where Simon74 was, but the description in his comment does not match the yellow course in Balmer See.

Allegedly only 4 lanes where you don't make "blind blows" to the flag? At best, this can apply if he has HC below zero and wants to attack every par 4 with the first stroke, which makes no real sense even for players in this HC class.

I play in the lower single HC range myself, but I wouldn't come up with such a strange idea.

Just for information for all interested guests:

If you play the lane on GIR (Green in Regulation), the lanes can be clearly seen on the following lanes when you hit the green:
1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 7; 8th; 9; 10; 12; 13; 14; 15; 16; 17; 18th

The condition of the place depends - as everywhere - heavily on the weather conditions.

Stones in the bunkers are annoying. I have to agree with him.

Otherwise I cannot understand the comment - which in my eyes is pointless. He's probably had a bad day and he's taking this out on someone. In this case, the place (which, however, cannot help it).

Expressed differently:
Whether you hit the target is rarely due to the arrow - mostly the Indian :)

Yellow course - OK if you like blind blows

Design: If you like blind strokes (only 4 tracks have none), I would rate the design with 3.5 stars. The three short PAR 3 holes (all just over 100 meters) are not my cup of tea. But OK.

Condition: Greens and fairways are OK (4 stars). There are often holes in the area of the first cut. If the ball is lying in a hole on a bare / dry area, it is annoying and the next hit will be very difficult. I find the small stones found in many bunkers absolutely annoying. You should take care of this promptly.

Driving range: The driving range is very simple. The partially almost rotted range balls are worth mentioning. Training is no fun. Please change.

Clubhouse: The ladies at the counter are very friendly.

Conclusion: Would I recommend the place to a friend? YES. - But please take care of the small stones in the bunkers and replace the rotted range balls. It would also be great if a detailed birdie book was available for the many blind strokes.

Blue course - golf course tormented in the landscape + rock hard greens

I've been playing golf for 14 years and I think the blue course is the worst golf course I've ever played.

Design: For me, the design looks as if you had tried to come out on hell and torture a golf course into the landscape. You always have blind shots related to obstacles, lay-up points and greens. Furthermore, concrete seems to have been processed below the first green layer. The greens are rock hard. I didn't even need my 18-hole pitch fork. This makes balls very difficult to lie on.

Condition of maintenance: The course is somewhat branched and the tracks are confusing. I would expect a number and a layout overview at each tee. Nothing. Signs were missing on almost every other lane.

If you want to play the course, you should play it at least twice. A round of games and a round of scores. In addition, you should choose a day for the scoring round on which it had rained heavily before. Then the greens may be a little softer.

Dear guest,

Thank you for your rating of our golf course.
It is absolutely true that you can expect appropriate tee boxes with numbers and a course or "Next Tee" on the tee.
This would be more than our standard. The fact is that these signs were for revision on your day of play and we unfortunately failed to notify you of this at the golf reception. We would like to apologize for this.

After consultation with our headgreenkeeper, we would be happy to add two or three sentences to your further statements.

In recent decades, soft greens have been the norm. Firmer greens, on the other hand, lead to less deep pitch marks and tread marks. This significantly reduces lawn diseases and, above all, bumps. The faithful ball run so often requested by golfers will be much easier to achieve in the future.
From the point of view of lawn care, soft greens have led to unnecessary compaction and low cutting heights, increased stress for the grasses and the spread of poa annua.
Sustainable greenkeeping is countering this negative development to date, above all to limit the moisture content of the pre-greens and greens between 15 and 20%. However, these values can only be achieved with quickly water-draining turf base layers, as well as in dry areas with selective hand watering.
If the moisture content in the greens drops, the oxygen content so essential for healthy grass growth increases.
With such an ecologically based maintenance strategy, the health of the grasses is promoted in the long term and, for golfers, healthy and loyal putt areas are reliably ensured.

We would be happy to welcome you again with us.

Sincerely yours

Bernd Heselhaus
