Right at the heart of Europe and Alsace, world class golfer Bernhard Langer has created a golfing paradise a mere 25 minutes from Baden-Baden and from Strasbourg (East Region).
The 33 greens and 18 lakes lie harmoniously nestled into the serene water meadow landscape of the Upper Rhine, surrounded by delightfully peaceful natural scenery and a world away from the hustle and bustle.
Langer fitted the courses into the wonderful landscape so expertly that a game of golf is a relaxing experience and players return to the clubhouse with a sense of satisfaction, no matter what their scorecard reads. In addition to the spectacular 18-hole championship course, members and guests have the choice between an attractive 9-hole course and a 6-hole short course, as well as luxurious practice facilities, all located within the 140ha site.
Soufflenheim is characterised by variety, beautiful scenery and proximity to nature, and it regularly casts its spell on players of all levels, from ambitious competitive golfers to the freshest of beginners.
The perfect combination of 6-hole short, 9-hole and 18-hole championship courses has meant Soufflenheim has become home to many golfers from the Baden and Alsace regions.
The main 18 hole course : The Lake
The Lake championship standard course is technically challenging with numerous strategically placed bunkers and plenty of water, which comes into play on no fewer than fourteen holes. A very demanding track from the back tees, the course concludes with a couple of really testing par fours, each of which measures over 425 yards.
Hole 17 doglegs to the right and lakes have to be avoided on either side of the fairway between tee and green. Then at the last, where tee shots require a 140-yard forced carry across water, the fairway doglegs left to a green guarded by water to the front right hand side of the putting surface – little wonder these closing holes are rated stroke index 4 and 2.
Covering an area of over 1200m², the elegantly spacious clubhouse is an ideal place come and relax as you enjoy Alsatian delicacies and the magnificent views of the course.
