An Overall Splendid Golfing Experience

Played June 12 2013 For:
• Heritage
• Helpful secretariat staff
• Birdie master ®course management guide
• Fabulous fairways & greens
• Intimidating bunkers; some deeper and larger that most residential swimming pools.
• Unforgiving roughs; I lost four balls! Not into the trees, just a few feet off the edge of the fairways. The ones I found didn't always come out to the fairway for one!!

Against:
• Archaic rental clubs
• Some not so friendly members
• No water Hazard, I like it when water's in play.

I will definitely recommend it.

Pinacle

In a very elegant setting golf here is civilized affair with distinct disclain for the ostentatius. Although there is a plesantly old-fashioned feel to the course, maintenance is definitely modern and probably the best in the region, I guess. This is my cup of tea where you have to bring all your shots and a few more.

A pleasure!

The Falkenstein Golf Club in Hamburg is definitely one of the best golf courses in Germany and is a must play, especially when the heather is in bloom (early August to early September)!
Only rarely do you experience such a perfect embedding in nature and a modeling of the tracks using natural occurrences. The course manages completely without water hazards, but the heathland landscapes are style-defining and often determine the game. The hilly court layout, the well-placed bunkers, the undulating, fast and track-keeping greens and the heather areas make for a varied and strategic game. In particular, tracks 8,10,15 and 17 will be remembered for a long time.
The friendliness of the members and employees also contributes to the special atmosphere of this wonderful place.

Hamburger Edelplatz!

After many years I played the Falkenstein golf course on the way back from Sylt in Hamburg!
I can only say the Harry S. Colt course is even better than it was 10 years ago! The design is sensational and can compete with the English, Dutch and French Heidewald classics! Falkenstein is a dream, the condition was absolutely flawless and the greens were lightning fast...!
I played a day after Budersand / Sylt in Falkenstein and the Hamburg flagship club remains my number 1 in Germany! Ps .: Falkenstein is worth 100, - € green fee, that is "being with yourself" in Falkenstein history!
The reception was extremely lovely and hospitable! To all golfers, play Falkenstein, Heathland - Forest Juwel!!!

Almost too good to be true!

Golfrunde on 7.8.2017

A beautiful parkland complex, well-maintained with great slopes embedded in the hilly Heidelandschaft.
The greens are fast and tricky to play. Many well-placed bunkers. Also water, but particularly whole Heidelands, come into play at some holes.

Very hospitable and helpful members.
A stylish clubhouse with very friendly and on the contrary catering, which satisfies all culinary special wishes for the rounds as well as for the dinner.
There is a very nice sunny clubhouse terrace with a good view of a spacious putting area, behind it the discounts 1 & 10 and the greens of the 9 and the 18.
Conclusion: An outstanding place in a great environment and with a welcoming mixture of Hanseatic worldliness and stylish British noblesse.
Absolutely recommendable.

Great golf course in the middle of pine trees and heather

I played the end of March 2017 the square. The holes are varied and playful demanding. Fairway and greens were in good condition. The tracks are relatively wide and beautifully embedded in pine tree stands. The greens are protected by bunkers. No water hazards. The numerous pine trees and the heather give the place a special and pleasant atmosphere. The place does have elevation changes that I did not expect in Hamburg. Overall, I was able to play in peace 18 holes on a beautiful golf course. I really enjoyed the day.

Story

Forty years ago, I have drawn in the summer for 5 Mark old ladies pocket and fished expensive balls from the heath, and now I have played the course for the first time themselves. What a development, the place is ripe like a great Bordeaux, and the Secretariat has democratized. This is now only to the game, and that was in addition to the perfecting of the square, the greatest joy in this historical for me Thursday-morning in July 2016th

Goose pimples

Falkenstein should not need much review. The place, the atmosphere - that's all great movies. Berthold Apel does a great job. Falkenstein has to be experienced!

Good condition, but again not so great.

Honestly, I went with great expectations of Germany's No. 1 golf and was a little disappointed. Yes, the place is beautiful, the location quiet, amazing and care of the environment state (except for the greens on April 23,2012) well. But why this should be Germany's most beautiful place, is not really open up to me as "normal golfer." Possibly. acts of the court, when the heather blooms impressive. I personally (I have to admit, I'm not a fan Parkland) water hazards such as missing or doglegs. Most trains go straight, have some "deep" bunker and that was it. Even the most elevated tees and greens do not break out in my opinion. The place is way hillier than you might think, what sometimes requires one or the other blind blow. For HC the high court because of trees and the resulting occasional narrow lanes is certainly not suitable. As I said, the greens had some shortcomings, so the 80 was - to 60, - € reduced green fees reasonable. A special praise goes to the club secretary. The lady at the counter was very friendly and accommodating. The club house and the bathroom facilities are also unfortunately was not necessarily a guide to the most modern stand the restaurant. Otherwise there was no encounter with members, as well as the matches on Monday morning was very moderate. Who's there should themselves take a picture and play a round.

The Best

An oasis of tranquility in the midst of a big city, magnificent forests, interresting tracks, good to very good condition maintenance, service friendly and courteous, club-restaurant with good food, simply a class of its own;
Due to technical progress of the place in terms of its length reached the limits (haircuts with his back to the fence / wall to), but still a MUST!

Beautiful

No. 1 in Germany absolutely justified. Very neat place. All lanes located in the forest. High Points of greens and tees. Much heath, which makes some ball disappear.

Traditional club, very straightforward and very nice staff.

Great kitchen. Fresh produce and prepared tasty. Sure to drop.
