The 18-hole golf course

With our 18-hole golf course, which was already opened in 1994, we are one of the most beautiful golf courses in Germany. Between forests and vineyards and with a unique view of the Marksburg and the Rhine, the heights of the Westerwald, Hunsrück and Taunus, every round of golf becomes an experience.

The fairway bunkers as well as numerous water hazards and fast, undulating greens characterise the course, a sporty but fair challenge. On our driving range, the large putting green and unique pitching green you can improve your golf game and train alone or under the guidance of our golf instructors. The course was designed according to the model of the famous American golf course architect Robert Trent Jones jr. and realized by Wolfgang Jarsombek. We see golf as a sporty leisure pleasure - and you?

Hole 1

Marksburg

A slight draw over the pole pointing theway opens up all kinds of possibilities for a good player to hit the green with their second swing. However, less skilles players also have the chance to hit the green in regulation with the third swing. However, the out of bounds that runs along the left of the fairway is dangerous. Players have to consider the downhill slope for the swing onto the green. From a certain playing ability, the fairway bunkers no longer come into play, but one of the two green bunkers on the right or left of the green do. The lower lying green is not very wide at 19 m but very long at 36 m so various pin positions may easily require one of two irons more or less.

Hole 2

Apple-Alley

The most difficult hole on the course. The drive here has to be placed right in the middle of an apple tree orchard otherwise it is almost impossible to make a swing onto the green. Here as well the out of bounds is on the left of the fairway but relatively rarely comes into play because there is a wide strip of rough between the fairway and bounds. The second swing has to be played uphill. At the same time you have to leave a fairway bunker and two green bunkers out of the game. The terrace shaped green allows for various pin positions.

Hole 3

YellowWaterloo

The most difficult par 3 of the course. It requires the player to take a short wood or a long iron on a narrow, slightly raised, undulating green. From the tee shot, a ravine with sunflowers and a small lake must be overcome. The approx. 60 m wide trench causes problems, especially for beginners. A small green bunker on the right and another one to the left of the green can come into play as an additional obstructions.

Hole 4

Jako's Corner

This dogleg to the left requires the player to hit a very precise tee shot over the apple tree, which is located in the middle of the fairway. The outline on the left side and the high trees standing there make shortening the dogleg a danger. Only the best players will place their tee shot in front of the green. But even with a successful normal first tee shot, the green can be reached without problems with the second shot. However, if you miss your tee shot, you will inevitably lose a shot. The green is characterized by its horizontal shape and the short landing zone associated with it. The outlines to the left and behind and two green bunkers in front and behind require a precise approach shot that is generally played using a short iron.

Hole 5

By the hunting ground

This dogleg to the right can be greatly shortened with a drive over the corner by a good player. The player has to overcome a row of apple trees, a rough strip and some bunkers on the right side and then has only one pitch into the approx. 50 m long green, which is defended by bunkers. For less good players, it is advisable to hit a shot on the fairway with a medium to long iron and then hit the green with the second or third swing.

Hole 6

Grand Canyon

One of the most spectacular holes on the course, which will make most beginners pale with respect. There is a 130 m ditch to overcome. If he doesn't make it through the gorge with the first shot, he can make use of the drop zone next to the ladies' tee, from where it only takes about 80 m to overcome the gorge. If he has then placed a shot on the fairway, which slopes slightly to the left, there is still a shot with a medium or long iron to hit one of the most difficult greens on the course. It is very strongly undulating and more or less slightly sloping on all sides, so that a one or two putt can easily turn into a bit more.

Hole 7

Big Slice

The drive on this uphill dogleg to the right is hit by good players over a rough lip about 160 m onto the fairway. Less good players first play the tee shot straight onto the fairway, then with two more shots on the safe path to reach the green. The green itself is quite large and has some dangerous waves, so that a one or two putt is not secured. It is protected by a large bunker on the left and an just as large bunker behind.

Hole 8

Gone with the wind

The easiest hole on the first nine. The green, well defended with bunkers, is slightly sloping and has a slight undulation in the middle. Depending on wind direction and flag position, the player can choose between a 7 iron and a wood. One should avoid a small pot bunker on the left side and a large green bunker on the right side of the green. A large green bunker behind the green very rarely comes into play.

Hole 9

Wild cherry aisle

If a small row of trees and a placement of the ball on the rather steeply sloping valley - long hitters play into the depression about 200 m away - the standing player has all possibilities to prepare the second shot for an attack on the green. A row of trees that divides the fairway in two halves must be played through or over. If he places his drive in the gaps between the rows of trees, he has the opportunity to reach the green with his second shot. This green, which is very large at 40 m, is only protected by a small pot bunker on the left-hand side. However, since it is higher and therefore the exact position of the flag is very difficult to estimate, in addition a green wave depending on the flag position comes into play, it offers enough difficulties. A water hazard approx. 70 m to the left of the green rarely comes into play.

Hole 10

A wonderful view

From an elevated tee shot, the drive is to be placed on the right past a small water hazard. After that, you only need a medium to short iron to place the ball on the 41 m long green, which is very difficult to putt. A very difficult to play wave has to be included in the putt depending on the pin position.

Hole 11

The Loch Ness monster

A really spectacular hole. When teeing off, it is important to avoid playing the ball into the large fairway bunker. If this is successful, the good player can attack the green with the second shot. In doing so, he must cross a large pond. If he does not succeed in bringing the ball to rest, there is a risk that it will roll into one of the green bunkers. Less good players try to place the ball on the fairway to the left of the water hazard with the second shot and then hit the green with the third. This almost square green also has a large wave on the left and sloping edges on the back and sides, which can cause additional difficulties when putting.

Golfplatz Jakobsberg Loch 12

Hole 12

The neverending story

The longest hole of the course and one of the longest holes in Rhineland-Palatinate. Here, the tee shot has to be placed between two small ones on the left and a large fairway bunker on the right. On the left side along the fairway there is an exclusion lurking. With the second shot you can easily reach the "full" again. Again, two fairway bunkers lurk in the landing area. Good players can now attack the flag with the third shot. The green is well protected by bunkers, so it is advisable to hit the shot "carry" on the 33 m long and 16 m wide green.

Loch 13

Hard Rough

The partly quite high rough on the right side of the fairway are the only dangers when driving. A medium to long iron on the green opens up all possibilities for the player. However, there are two bunkers to the left and right of the green, which come into play more often than many would like. When putting, it is important to keep your concentration, because here, for the first time, there is the danger of being distracted by the fantastic view of the big Rhine bend.

Golfplatz Jakobsberg Loch 13

Hole 14

First the Rhine

This hole is characterized by its very long, kidney-shaped green, which is 40 m long. The entrance is only about 10 m wide and protected by two green bunkers. If the tee shot with a medium to long iron does not land on the green, it can be quite problematic for the player, because the surroundings of the green are quite hilly and slope down to the edge. If the ball is in the bunker, you should be happy that nothing unpleasant has happened.

Golfplatz Jakobsberg Loch 14

Hole 15

Mission Impossible

An absolute monster of a hole. The longest par 4 on the course. You have to let go two tremendous shots to reach the green "in regulation". The fairway is relatively wide and slopes slightly uphill towards the green. The fairway hangs very strongly to the left to the outline, on the right is a wide rough strip. In addition, you can often expect strong winds from the Rhine Valley. An additional difficulty comes into play when the flag is at the back of the green, as there is still a wave to overcome.

Hole 16

View over the Rhine

The easiest hole on the course. Before you tackle it now, you should take a moment to enjoy one of the most beautiful views of the Rhine Valley. A fairly wide green allows the player with a medium to long iron from the elevated tee to play the flag well. The green is protected by bunkers on the left and back.

Hole 17

Three terraces

The second hardest hole of the course. Long hitters can cut this dogleg to the left. To avoid the relatively high risk of a lost ball, you can also hold the ball on the fairway and then attack this unique green with a medium to long iron. It is the crowning glory of German golf course construction. It is cloverleaf shaped and extends over three levels. It is not exactly a great pleasure when the flag is on a different level than the ball. But that's not all: the green is quite well protected by two strategically placed bunkers, so the entrance is very narrow and only a few meters wide. A water hazard to the right in front of the green rarely comes into play.

Golfplatz Jakobsberg Loch 18

Hole 18

Fairway to heaven

At this tee shot, only on the left side is an exclusion zone waiting for drives that have died. The slope in the middle of the fairway and the unseen green make it very difficult to hit the green with the second shot and thus create an eagle chance. A huge, approx. 50 m long bunker, which separates the 18th fairway from fairway 1, is usually waiting for the second shot. A good pitch on the green gives the player a realistic birdie chance. A bunker in front left, another one behind it on the left and a large one on the right, which extends behind the green, as well as the outline behind the green punish inaccuracies in approach.
