Gifhorn Golf Club was founded in 1982. At first the 9 holes were laid out north of the Gifhorn Landweg, some years later the holes south of it followed.
Despite the gently sloping topography of the terrain, the golf courses appear relatively even, because the course was designed without shaping.
In the course of the construction, extensive planting of trees was carried out, which over the decades have grown into landscape-forming tree backdrops that frame the holes. Gifhorn Golf Course is accordingly to be classified as a Parkland Golf Course. From a golfing point of view, some holes are now considerably narrowed by the growth of the tree crowns and place special demands on the precision of the shots.
In addition to the wooded backdrop, the golf course is characterised by a number of ponds and several ditches, some of which cross the fairways and thus encourage players to adapt their playing style to the situation.
