Bremen Club Zur Vahr Golf Club - Garlstedt Course

Germany, North Germany, Bremen
5.5 (2)
Course Opened: 1964

Club zur Vahr was founded in 1905, its first 9 holes were located in Breman and its full 18 hole course in Garlstedt and opening in 1964. Limburger did a decent job building this course, carving his holes through a dense, almost spooky forest and adding attractive lakes and water hazards.

Narrow fairways through the tall trees is the primary challenge here, the front half slightly more interesting than the back and featuring an unusual down then up par five at the 2nd where you go left and over water or right of a tall tree on the second shot. The 6th and 7th are also unusual holes with split fairways, neither hole really rewarding aggressive play because the shot from the safer side on the 6th is no more difficult and on the 7th it leaves an approach that is blocked by overhanging branches.

On the back nine the storied 16th hole is quite nice, the drive is played over a small sloping hill but then reaches a flat fairway followed by a cross-creek approach to an unremarkable green. The 17th is probably the pick here, it has a gorgeous setting and a nice green with a small knoll in the right pushing balls down the slope.

All in all Club zur Vahr is a pretty solid layout, but not a course worth driving too far out of your way to experience.
