The name refers to the immediate proximity to the sea and the old field name of the Geestrücken, whose gentle relief is followed by the eighteen holes. In the thirty years since the course was built, the old woods and rows of trees have grown together with countless new plantings to form imposing backdrops against the high sky of the north. The renovation of holes 10 and 11, which will be completed in 2021, has significantly upgraded the course from a sporting point of view. The golfing appeal of the Cuxhaven Golf Club is confirmed by its long-standing top-five placement in the official rating of the German Golf Association. Every year, 3,500 green fee players of all handicap classes visit the club to compete with one of the most beautiful golf courses in Germany. After the round, the catering invites you to dine in the clubhouse or on the terrace. The requirements for a round are the presentation of the club card of a golf club with a registered handicap index of 54 or less. The golf fee card is accepted. Members of the VcG are welcome. Groups are requested to register early.
The last Ice Age glaciers formed the land between the Elbe and the Weser thousands of years ago. They left behind the sandy Geest and the marshy wetlands. The 18-hole golf course Gut Hainmühlen near Bad Bederkesa combines these formative landscape elements in a particularly attractive, near-natural and yet very well-kept way, in an extensive 71-hectare site only about half an hour's drive from the coastline. Just how seriously Hainmühlen takes the careful treatment of its natural surroundings without neglecting the professional management of a service-oriented golf course can be seen from the fact that it has placed itself under the "Golf & Nature" certification of the German Golf Association.
The design of the courses is inspired by the landscape. Some sections appear harmless on the ground, but then prove to be unexpectedly challenging after the shot. The first 11 holes, accompanied by many water hazards, run through originally marshy, wetland-infested meadow, bush and shrubland terrain, lined on the edge by ancient deciduous trees and with natural forest in sight. The last 7 holes lead onto the slightly higher gently undulating sandy Geest ridge. The fairway of hole 14, a long par 5 that is constantly exposed to strong winds, has been modelled by the golf course architect - as a reminiscence of the nearby North Sea - like elongated high sea wave crests in the Geest sand. It never gets boring on the round!
If you enjoy the panoramic view over the first 9 holes on the clubhouse terrace with a refreshment or good meal after your round, the calm and relaxed holiday atmosphere that a sporting day of golf at Hainmühlen conveys will be passed on to you. The casual style of the club, where golf etiquette is respected but where elitist behaviour is looked for in vain, can be recognised by the fact that guests are greeted and welcomed in a friendly manner not only by the service team but also by the members.
