The Goettingen Course has held a special place in the hearts of golfers for many years. And it still remains a sporting challenge: its changing heights and slopes offer a test of character even for experienced golfers. And even if a ball lands in the rough, the decades-old landscape with its stunning views of historic woods will offer ample compensation.
The course, which now covers 68 hectares, was built in two sections: In 1971 Donald Harradine designed the current back nine, fitting the fairways largely to the grounds. In 1987, the German architect Wolfgang Siegmann finished the other nine holes. In this case, hardly any major excavation was necessary but, over the years, numerous trees have been planted on what was once a vast agricultural area.
