Pros: This is a very good beginner's course. I'm a really big fan of H. Wahrmann's courses in the area because he really knows how to utilize land to maximize the fun and challenge factor in the courses.
This short, but sweet, course has a variety of shots that really test your midrange game. If you can throw straight for 200 feet, you're golden here and should expect a really good score. I'd say that at 7 of the 9 holes are complete ace runs, which is always a nice break from tougher courses.
There aren't any holes over 300 feet, but there are some longer open holes (280 ish) that allow players to air it out.
The baskets and the signs are in excellent condition and the course flows very, very well. It's very obvious where the next tee will be because most of the tees are only 30 feet or so away from the basket. A+ on design.
Also, the grass is regularly mowed here, which isn't as popular in Germany as it is in the US. Huge plus!
Cons: No concrete tees and not too much of a challenge for the advanced player.
Another huge con is that this course only utilizes a small fraction of the total land available. If this course was expanded and the holes made a little bit longer, this could easily reach 4-4.5 range. I have a hard time giving anything less than 18 baskets a 4.5 or even a 4.
Other Thoughts: I honestly had a really fun time playing here. I played this course four times in a row and I was totally ready to play it again, but it was getting dark.
Another thing I should point out, this course plays counter-clock wise which means that it favors left-handed or anhyzers for a several of the shots, which adds a little bit of a variety to the usual clockwise RH favoring courses.
In the fall, the leaves and the scenery is breath taking. Meinzerhagen is a very pretty and hilly city. Check it out if you're in the area!!
