Course of the Month - Papendal, Netherlands.

A few months ago we featured one of the oldest courses in the Pitch and Putt world. This month we feature one of the newest as we introduce Papendal to the global Pitch and Putt community.
On the 16th of October 2006 the 10th course Pitch&Putt Golf Papendal in the Netherlands opened its doors to greet Pitch&Putter players.
This unique 27 holes course in the Netherlands lies on the grounds of the National Sport Centre Papendal. That isn't its only special feature. Pitch&Putt Golf Papendal offers sculpted fairways, mature trees and lush greens in a spectacular setting alongside the Veluwe, a forest-rich ridge of hills in the province of Gelderland.
The Veluwe is the largest lateral moraine in the Netherlands, stretching 60 km from north to south, and reaching heights of over 100 m (the peak height is 110 meters). This was formed by the Saalian glacial during the Pleistocene epoch. In the center of the Veluwe lies the Netherlands' biggest national park, "Nationaal Park De Hoge Veluwe", best translated as "upper Veluwe" because of its elevation. The western boundary of the Veluwe is formed by several lakes linked together, the biggest being the Veluwemeer.
In the near vicinity, guests who want to spend the holidays in the Netherlands can stay in a hotel which accommodates 78 spacious guest rooms, including two suites and a family room on walking distance from the course.
Next to the opening ceremony, one of the festivities’ to celebrate was an International between Ireland and the Netherlands on 26, 27 and 28 October. This returning event is aptly named the “Willie Parker Cup” in memory of the Irish Coach Willie Parker.
Notwithstanding all festivities members already are training hard for next years club competitions and tournaments. This being the 10th course means the owners, Jans and his son Richard Schrik, have benefited from experiences of the other courses in order to find a good balance to make it interesting to both beginners and good players. Pitch&Putt Golf Papendal is opened all year round without a winter break as long as the king winter allows.
