The Golfclub Schmallenberg decided in 2011 to extend the existing 18-hole golf course to 27 holes, because of the increasing demand in the course of recent years by holiday guests. An increase in the capacity of the golf course by means of a further 9 holes was thus required in order to offer sufficient guest players and members play opportunities.
In addition, new landscaped spaces have been opened up to the gulf, which offer a great view into the beautiful Sauerland.
Hole of the month - Hole #1 North Course - Golf Journal 10/2019:
"This tee shot on the 27-hole course, like several others here, also captivates with a magnificent panoramic view of the Sauerland hills. And also from this section you play, as several here, the ball very deep down. With that difference in height - now really hit it? All normal golfers are to be guessed: No way! On hole #1 of the north course it is not about length, but about the right placement. Because the fairway becomes narrower and narrower towards the end, and also drops off massively to the left. And there, the little brook Schmalnau lurks, which one does not see here yet that its water will finally end in the North Sea. The safest landing place for the drive is the corridor behind the two trees at the beginning of the fairway, it offers the best angle for hitting the green. By the way, you can see why this is not bunkered at the latest when you miss it: To the right of it is the Schmalnau, to the left is a hollow and a slope, and from there, with luck, the ball can bounce onto the green, but unfortunately also somewhere else."
