Below you can find an overview of all championship golf courses in and around Amsterdam. Some of which are already featured in our packages, and some are a bit more exclusive. However, we can arrange greenfees on all golf courses around, and make your package Made to Measure.
Golfcourse Waterland Amsterdam
This public golf course is closest to Amsterdam city center, only 8 km away. The name says it all: water… A difficult course to play, tight fairways, and lots, and lots of water. New management has improved the course tremendously over the past few years, with improved greens and bunkers. The closing holes make for an interesting finish.

Amsterdamse Golf Club
A private golf club, and a real joy to play, with lots of undulating fairways, and very good greens. And with only 13 km from Amsterdam city center, this design by Paul Rodin & Gerard Jol is perfectly suited for a round of golf before exploring Amsterdam.

This private golf club, about 15 km from Amsterdam city center, is one of Holland’s most challenging golf courses. Fairly new, but due to it’s length, and high quality greens (rumoured to be the best in the Netherlands), always a challenge to play. The club has been national champions on numerous occasions, and has hosted the Challenge Tour twice.

Golf Course Spaarnwoude
This public golf complex, about 20 km from Amsterdam city center is Europe’s largest golf complex, with 66 holes. About 350,000 visitors each year, play a staggering 175,000 rounds of golf. This is the place where many people in the Netherlands take up the game of golf, because of the excellent training facilities and shorter holes. Make no mistake though, there are 27 championship holes, which are no easy feat.

De Zaanse, is also really near Amsterdam city center, just 18 km away. This exciting golf course is layed out through your typical Dutch landscape: polder, and canals. Water comes into play on almost every hole, requiring precision from the tee. This really is a beautiful little gem, right next to Amsterdam.

Amsterdam Old Course
One of the oldest courses in the Netherlands, this 9 hole course used to be found in the middle of the pastures surrounding Amsterdam. However, urban development, railroads, and the Amsterdam ArenA (the Ajax stadium), have all closed in on this quaint little golf course. However, it is still a challenging 9-hole lay-out, and the thatched roofed club house makes for a warm welcome.

Hoge Dijk (Olympus)
The Hoge Dijk is a public golf course, and is sometimes referred to golf club Olympus, who play here. A challenging executive course (par 3′s and 4′s), and an 18-hole championship course, this course has 27 holes. The first nine of the championship course are fairly open and a little shorter, the second nine are longer, with tighter fairways. The greens are always in excellent condition, making for a great round of golf.

This golf center is a new initiative, wich focusses around the 9 worlds of golf: the 9 aspects of the golf game which you can improve here. The training facilities are named as one of the best in Europe, and the new 9-hole championship course is growing into a good golf course; a typical Dutch ‘inland links’.

A new course, designed by Ian Woosnam, near Schiphol Airport (as a matter of fact on one or two holes you might want to hold of making your approach shot, as it appears the planes are coming in so low…). Already hailed as one of the best courses in the Netherlands, this exciting new design will play host to the Ladies European Tour Event, the Deloitte Ladies Open from the 24th until the 26th of May 2013.

Haarlemmermeersche Golf Club
Often referred to as the best polder course in the Netherlands, this club has 27 holes (a 9 hole course and an 18 hole championship course), as well as one of the better par 3 courses near Amsterdam. Add to that the beautifully mown fairways, straight bunker edges with rich and beautiful sand, and the large undulating greens, and you’re sure to have an excellent golf-day.

Heemskerkse Golf Club
This golfcourse is a long and usually heavy (depending on weather) polder course. There is quite a lot of water but on most holes it doesn’t really come into play. There’s a good variety of long and short holes with some risk/reward holes where you can cut off the corners. The price/quality ratio is good as the course is fun to play, very challenging and affordable.

The Kennemer Golf & Country Club
The Kennemer Golf & Country Club is the oldest links golf course in Netherlands. The course is located just behind the sea front in a sloping dune landscape and consists of 3 series of 9 holes, two are designed by Harry Colt, and one by Frank Pennink. The Kennemer is one of the best golf courses in continental Europe and will be the host of the KLM Open in 2013.

Hilversumsche Golf Club
The Hilversumsche is one of the oldest clubs in the Netherlands and is also designed by Harry Colt. Recently Kyle Philips has done some extensive renovation to a few holes, to withstand the test of time. Your golf game will be put to the test, with the undulating narrow fairways, fast greens, the beautiful park and heathland. The Hilversumsche has hosted the KLM Open on several occasions.

Golf & Country Club Liemeer
Liemeer is a typical Dutch “polder” course, what we like to call an inland links with lots of water. The 18-hole Championship Course is challenging and is fun to play for both the high and low handicappers. Bunkers and water features alternate one another, not only to make the game more challenging and keep the golfer on its toes, but also to keep the course in shape.

The Beemster currently has a 9 hole championship course. This “polder” course can be extremely challenging under the right circumstances, with lots of water hazards and large undulating greens. The course is located in a World Heritage site, and open to members and non-members.

This exciting 18 hole course is a tale of two halves: the first nine are rather tricky park course/polder course, whereas the second nine are almost like a links course built upon a hill. In our opinion great value for money, with excellent practice facilities, including a challenging short par-3 course.

Golfcourse Burggolf Purmerend
Great facilities with 36 championship holes, consisting of four 9-hole courses, white, yellow, red, and blue, which can be played all kinds of different combinations. Add to that a great par-3 course, as well as practice facilities with pitching holes, bunker holes, two putting greens, as well as an on-course hotel, and you can see why Purmerend is so well-liked amongst international golfers.

Goyer Golf & Country Club
This relatively exclusive club has quite a new golf course (2001), but the 18-hole North Course is often described as brilliant, a parkland course designed by Bruno Steensels, with an “American feel”. It is a real hidden gem in central Holland, and a joy to play. The South Course is a 6 hole par-3 course, with a couple of long holes.
