Wittelsbacher Golf Club
The venerable Wittelsbacher Golf Club is on my „must“ playlist since a long time. I`ve read and heard so many positive things about this place and therefore I was super happy that this time I got the opportunity to play this course. It was a calm and sunny afternoon – just perfect conditions for a round of golf!
Arriving at Wittelsbacher Golf Club, I was pleased with the very warm and friendly welcome in the clubhouse. Preparing my photo equipment and golf bag, my first impression was very sympathetic and this was confirmed by a super nice conversation with the Golf Pro of the Club. Around 5am I started my round at no.10. The tee box was right next to the club house.
I was amazed at hitting such a good 3 wood without any warm up and any bucket at the range – pretty good after this long car ride. I split the fairways and was in such a great position for my second shot. This first hole already showed me what Wittelsbacher Golf Club is all about: many big old trees are almost into play at any hole. The tee box at 11, a long par 3 with 172m from yellow, was awesome.
Again the tee shot was surrounded by old deciduous trees which build up a nice alley. From this point on I was totally on fire and I played a really good back nine.
Compared to the front nine the back nine was extremely long and from time to time I had problems to attack the greens with the second shot. Once I had the opportunity they still were well guarded by bunkers or big threes. But I found this very challenging especially the 18, a long par 5 with 509m from yellow. I had about 150m left for my third shot to the green, from where I could see the impressive clubhouse. I was very proud with my shot right at the dance floor. But the 18th green was still a beautiful task for me. The big green with its huge elephant back was hard to put.
But really impressing is the front nine. The first hole was an amazing 490m long par 5, the tee box was special with the white wooden fence around it. The hole itself was very nice to play and impressed once again by the beautiful, large, old trees on both sides of the fairway.
Playing the first nine holes of the Wittelsbacher Golf Club was just amazing.
I found my golfer`s karma and played one of my best rounds this year. In summary, this place is a must for every golfer. Simply sensational and I hope to have the chance to play this course very soon again.
