Kempferhof Golf Course, France

Feb 29th
2016

The Kempferhof is one of the toughest challenges in the Alsace region. Robert von Hagge designed the course and it opened for play in 1989. Close to Strasbourg, set in 220 acres of protected nature, the American architect took his inspiration from the beauty of the landscape and the river Rhine and designed this golf course, classified by the Rolex Guide as amongst the best 14 on the European Continent.

A nineteenth century hunting lodge doubles up as the clubhouse and a charming small hotel which is themed around the cinema, specifically movie legends. Le Kempferhof is the realisation of a dream of three Alsatian entrepreneurs who felt that the Strasbourg region needed a quality course. But wait, there’s more…

Golf Books #223 (A Fork in the Cart Path)

Feb 23rd
2016

61TDCSfneQL“Improve or quit!” That’s the ultimatum Randy Stewart gave himself when his mediocre golf game fell completely apart. His solution was to seek professional help for twelve months and to record his experience along the way. This book is that narrative, an autobiography of his efforts to salvage his game.

It is not a rehash of prior events but rather a reaction as they unfolded. As you read, you will become part of a gallery watching this troubled hacker determine his golfing future.

The book’s tone is more inspirational than instructional. At its end, you should have a greater appreciation of the challenge and charm of golf. You may also look at your own life a bit differently.

All golf enthusiasts will find this honest, humorous, and heartwarming story well worth the read.

Golf Club Alvaneu Bad, Switzerland

Feb 22nd

The 18-hole golf course (Par 72) in Alvaneu Bad makes the most of its unique natural setting by incorporating the surrounding landforms into its course, situated in a very idyllic location in the hollow of a valley, at a mere 950 m above sea level, directly adjacent to the Albula and Bernina line, the UNESCO World Heritage of the Rhaetian Railway.

The first 9 holes lie in a typical river landscape and other existing creeks were directed into four lakes, used for the area’s irrigation and as water hazards. Whilst playing golf, you can repeatedly enjoy the impressive architecture of the Landwasser viaduct. But wait, there’s more…
