Everything OK

As already described, it is a place that was built in a former gallop race track. The height differences are therefore small. But there is quite a tree and a pond.

The tracks are pleasantly wide and fair to play despite the circumstances. In my two previous laps, the course was in good shape and the greens were consistently playable without any major mistakes. So I did not experience the place in as bad a state as it is in some reviews to read. I enjoy playing a round there.

I find the training facilities with driving ranch, putting greens and chipping areas very good and extensive.

The service was also everything OK and in the restaurant I was friendlyly served, although I only a little drunk and therefore to the food nothing to say.

There are certainly higher quality golf courses, but that also makes itself felt in the prices. Therefore, I consider the facility for a nice alternative to play a pleasant round.

Golf in the middle of the Ruhr area

Played on 12.5.2017. The flat 9-hole course (PAR 35) is located in the center of Gelsenkirchen within a former equestrian track. One also plays over again or again over some natural jumping obstacles, which were thought probably earlier for the horses. There is something special to play here as well, past the heavy industry, which you can see and hear in the background and always with a view of the Hercules statue of the Nordsternpark or past the new settlement along the ninth lane. Otherwise, it is a full-fledged 9-hole course. Partially even with two tee-off variants when playing 18-holes. There are water hazards and ever-growing vegetation where you can also lose your balls if you do not stay on the track. Strategy is certainly a key to success here and the driver does not always have to be the best choice of tee-off. The condition was good. The Greens fast and faithful. In the clubhouse at the counter I was greeted as a guest friendly and served. Rather uncomplicated I could play on a sunny Friday night immediately. For 25 € and thankful and golfing promising way without surcharge for players without "r" in the identification absolutely appropriate. There is a generous exercise area with driving range and even a short place on the premises. If you need balls or a glove, you can pull it at an automat! I found the relaxed atmosphere refreshing and can recommend the round, if you no Nobelwiese, here after dinner or as a stopover in the middle of the Ruhr area. Why here so many bad reviews stand for me incomprehensible!

Easter frustration

Have played a round of Easter today. 35 euros for a place in this quality and in this state are really borderline. In the square, we found that the Gruen were relatively fresh aerifiziert and sanded. to play catastrophic. As we noted after the round at the Secretariat that notification thereof was omitted, let alone offering a green fee reduction was submitted, we got cheeky to say that the reference was yet to read on the Internet.
Too bad, with a little more service availability would have to qualify the quality of the place, and can take care off a nice Easter experience.

Not recommendable!!

If one disregards the most unfriendly men at the counter, the system is in an acceptable condition. The greens can never count them as such. Between fairway and rough little difference. Prices in restaurants are not acceptable! As I learned afterwards, the very rude man was also the owner of the plant, which also operates the Jacobi place in Oberhausen. It should again take a course on corporate governance!!

Office

Today I was with some friends on the drving range. The price of 30 balls (3.30 euros) had left me shortly language. When I remarked that that would be quite expensive, I was struck harshly, I must indeed there does not play on my answer that I could surprise me already about this hefty price tag, the Lord repeated his words again. The driving range is very nice and in very good condition, not the question, the service may still be used.

Price & performance Top

Nice atmosphere, well kept greens, relatively varied, great catering and sanitary and good practice facilities.
Sure there nicer and larger spaces that are better maintained, but here is in contrast to many other clubs in the sport in the foreground, and price & true power, will likely change this season then.

Thankfully place

For the position (in the former racecourse), a good place successful grateful.
Unlike other places in the area within a racetrack (Mulheim, Dusseldorf), it is not as tight as one assumes.
That with the unfriendly staff I can not confirm, on the contrary, it is welcome and if you are here for the first time and needs help also receives a prompt (asking end people can be helped).
On the whole, this is to be a complicated golf course (club) for everyone and that's it.
Those who start with golf is the place to go quite well, I think.
Funny or sad, I personally find that only about 10 km further operated in Oberhausen by the same operator, a similar concept but absolutely Counts (see review there).

Well for the first entry

The site of a ehmaligen racetrack experience, are not sufficient space for a varied and challenging place to create. Therefore, here are the tracks usually quite short and for a fast lap is the place to always have. However, it can also Plegezustand the place to be desired, as well as the quality of service counter or the pros. For entry into the life of the golf club and the place is useful.

Hello Mr. Marco, thank you for taking the trouble to review us.
The state with the place I will apply only in a very limited context. Unfortunately, we always have with us had problems with enough water so that us the drought currently adding more.
What I will not apply, your statement bezgl the reception staff and the pros.
It represented a very lonely opinion, what is confirmed by many satisfied customers. Maybe it's sometimes the way you call into the forest!
My advice to you is: Do you have the courage but simply to speak to us directly next time, then we can sort things out immediately, and know who we're dealing with.
Best wishes and luck!

Catastrophic greens

The golf course is state in a very well kept general.
The greens, however, have old town character. You think you putt on cobblestones. There should probably be an aeration, which was carried out there. The result was the worst greens in NRW! , Is present in 80% of all pricked holes after aeration, came in no sand. As the winter greens to classes are better at other clubs. In addition, no lightning rod to the shelters.
Not recommended!

Golf course yes, but poor greens

I played the course after 10 years again now. Has racecourse well-developed plant-former for a 9 hole. But there are very poor greens. The fairways were very well maintained.
Pro shop and the restaurant were very friendly service.

This is not a golf course!

This place is very very far from a golf course.
He is unkempt, poorly signposted, distances are in short supply, the discount panels do not agree with the scorecards and more...
The greens are absolutely disastrous, long, uneven, and extremely dull.
The practice green is much faster.

Amazingly, that was held here on Golf Association NRW a league game. Plus a waiting time of one hour, after the first nine holes, because the last flight has not even knocked off the first An absolute disaster!

Never ever

So what my "Vorbewerter" writes is completely out of reality. Greens are well maintained and barely playable and one of Freundlichlkeit there is very, very far away. Absolutely not to be recommended

Surprise

On 22/10/09 I was the first Time on the golf course Horst Castle. Since I know the system "Golf Range Dortmund" within the local racetrack, I was skeptical at first, because this is so not my thing there.
When I got to the counter, I was surprised at the friendly and binding nature of the staff.
I was even more surprised then the plant, good haircuts, clean, well maintained fairways and greens that respect.
The restaurant has pleased me very well (especially the fact that smoking is allowed in the attached Pavilion), attentive but not intrusive staff.
Conclusion: I would stay here again!
