Golf in Bad Homburg

Bad Homburg is the birthplace of golf in Germany! It was brought to the town by English spa guests, who began driving the little white balls over the Kurpark lawns in 1889, and shortly thereafter designed the golf course next to Brunnenallee, which is still in existence, albeit it has been reduced in size. It is the oldest golf course in Germany! The chalet-style clubhouse was rebuilt in1991 to the original plans dating back to 1901. It is now home to a restaurant.

The "Old Course" now has six holes and is still played on. It is one of the few public golf courses that can be used by members of a German or foreign golf club who hold a card for their club indicating their handicap, and by players who are not affiliated to a club but who can prove they have qualified for a handicap of 54.
The Homburg Golf Club, which was founded in 1899, built the "New Course" on the western edge of town, and can be reached via the B456 (toward Saalburg and Usingen). Members of a German or foreign recognized club (including VCG) who hold a club card indicating their handicap, can play the 18-hole course against payment of a green fee. The minimum handicap during the week is 54, at the weekends 36. The driving range can be used free of charge, and offers 18 teeing grounds, four of which are covered. Putting and chipping greens are also available. Teeing off times do not have to be booked in advance. Hole 16 is very special, with its view out over the skyline of Frankfurt, the Spessart and the Rhön.
