Markus4Mueller review

Most important notice: Is it worth to play there: Yes, it is. However, read my warning below, too. The Feldafing Golf Club is actually right on Lake Starnberg. Not only the location near the water and the wonderful views of the Alps´mountain panorama make this golf course something very special in the (southern) area of ​​Munich. The area on which the golf club is located is a place steeped in history. The Empress Elisabeth wandered around here in the 19th century. Today you can walk the fairway on their paths. King Maxilimilian once wanted to build a castle here. Today the tea box 11 is located on the foundation of the castle´s wine cellar. The Golfcourse is located in a todays public park, created in 1857 by Peter Joseph Lenné on behalf of the Bavarian King Max II, also creates the special flair and the colorful moments in autumn The staff at the reception as well as the marshalling is exemplary, polite and courteous. The guest is treated as king here. The place itself is surprisingly varied. With the first holes a journey through old trees begins like a dense avenue. A simple par 4 with 335 m (yellow) eases the start of the game. Hole 2, a par 3 with 184m and a dense tree population and crossing water as well as 2 bunkers demands a very precise game. The further out leads to the south and back between the lake and the unfortunately busy Tutzinger road along the German Army barracks. Especially in autumn to play beautifully through the woods, extremely forgiving and with very different lengths, the course is not way boring. New plantings of individual pines, drainage ditches running across the lake and small ponds form further varied obstacles and require precise and well-considered play. A blind pass (# 7) must also be proven, otherwise all greens and fairways are clearly visible. Only at tee 10 you have to start with an observer from the platform, here a pedestrian path runs across the park. Another special feature is that the golf course runs in a public park and some paths are therefore divided. It is not that straightforward at all, it is a back and forth in different directions and much more demanding than the first 9 lanes. The altitude profile also changes and it becomes more demanding. Personally, I found the lack of clear distance information (very small caps) and really bad signage confusing for the game speed and the result. Both the 9, or better the 18, end below the clubhouse terrace. The nice clubhouse includes a far above average restaurant, a tiny proshop, and all typicall administratice rooms. It has a very nice flair, a wonderful beer garden with a view of the lake and the Alps and really good menu. However, the restaurant is closed Nov - Feb. The practice facilities are a bit small, but there is a narrow driving range up the slope, a small chipping and pitching area and a small putting green. We caught a sunny autumn day, even days before without rain. Nevertheless, the place is very wet, sometimes muddy. I was disappointed with the ingenious drainage system. The greens had been aerated and sanded the day before, the green fee was reduced accordingly to € 40. Final recommendation and warning: All in all, a wonderfully located, varied and interesting place which I would only recommend after a long dry period and which renovation in parts may be considered. The Birdybook is a very important aid to find the right tee-off and to compensate for the lack of good signage.
