The Rosendaelsche Golfclub is one of the oldest and most famous golfclubs in the Netherlands and it was host of the Dutch Open in 1984.
The club intends to improve their practice facilities and extend the course by two new holes. In addition the old course should be face-lifted in certain parts and the typical heather areas will get a ecological upgrade.
At Rosendaelsche we attracted against international competitors after an invitation to bid for the redesign of the course.
"The bunkers are superb and members are very pleased"

What the press says
"Unfortunately, the Rosendaelsche has developed a bit of a reputation for being satisfied just to be the oldest course and has traditionally followed a rather frugal developmental and maintenance policy. I would like to make one thing clear for all the readers. This is no longer the case. De Rosendaelsche is in the middle of major improvements, bringing this beautiful course up to the highest of championship standards.
Many of the improvements are already visible, for example all the bunkers on the course have been reshaped by Christoph Städler, one of the best known German golf course architects who is also responsible for the complete renovations. I have to say there is nothing better than a classic course that’s renovated by someone who respects the original design and does a fantastic job of complimenting the playability of the course and the aesthetics.
The new bunkering at De Rosendaelsche is functional and aesthetically pleasing, a real improvement to the course."
