GOLFPLATZ BRUNNWIES designed by Bernhard Langer
This course offers everything a good golf course needs along with the signature feel of a course created by Germany’s world-class golfer Bernhard Langer. The 18-holes in Brunnwies were the first to be designed by Bernhard Langer in Bad Griesbach. The result: one of the top 20 courses in Europe (“Golf World England“). This course challenges good golfers, yet is still suitable for all skill levels – this applies to all of the championship courses at the golf resort, and most especially to the Brunnwies Golf Course.
The countryside is charming all on its own as it offers a beautiful view of the Lower Bavarian woods. It comes as no surprise that the Rottal and its surrounding hill country are often referred to as “The Bavarian Tuscany”. Playing an 18-hole round on the Brunnwies course proves that this name is indeed justified. As for the athletic factor, the course impresses not only with how meticulously it has been integrated into the countryside, but also with its hand-mown and often heavily contoured greens, as is the case with hole 11. On this hole, the flag may be placed at three different levels. Being a master at putting is more essential for a good score on this course than on any of the rest.
Brunnwies is additionally characterised by extensive rough where the ball can most often be found and played. Those able to forgive the extra shot will get to enjoy the nature beyond the fairways. The slightly contoured course features two drawn-out slopes at hole 5 and hole 13. The latter is immediately followed by an interesting par 3: 150 metres downhill to a green that is well protected by water. The exciting finale is offered by a par 4: a dogleg which power hitters can significantly shorten with aperfect drive to get the ball almost right onto the green. Do beware: trees and an out of bounds line often lead to disillusionment. Those who opt for a conventional approach will be able to set their sights on the Brunnwies Estate and its lovely terrace. The green happens to be located right below the terrace. You can rest assured that the guests already enjoyingaprès golf will be watching.
