Hole 2: Industrial romanticism.
Who'd have thought that, with just a few bits of iron and an old wooden tub, you could create a true-to-scale version of a coking plant? (Thanks to Sascha from Hanover for the photo)
A small step for a man ...
... but a giant bill for you. We don't say, "Please don't step on the holes" simply because we love the sound of our own voice.
"All right, I suppose"; "Cheerless"; "Architecture so brutalist that it ought to be thrown in jail" – these are just a few of the many positive comments we've heard about the golf course.
However, what the naysayers might not know:
The holes are swept regularly
Surface water is also removed whenever necessary
We've been told us that the ball rolls really smoothly, "like on a bowling green"
Oh, and excuse the capital letters, but:
IF YOU WEIGH MORE THAN A RABBIT DOES, DON'T STAND ON THE HOLES. IF YOU DO, THEY'LL PROBABLY BREAK.
Per person: € 3.00 for 18 holes

Opening times (all year round, almost).
Weekdays (except Tuesdays):
Saturdays, Sundays, public holidays:
From 11:00 am
The golf course will remain closed for the foreseeable future. You can still buy stuff at the kiosk, though (open until 6:00 pm).
Closing times depend on the weather and the light. However, at the time of writing, we don't stay open any later than 7:00 pm.
The current record holder is Thomas, who completed the 18 holes in just 25 strokes. He's even managed it twice, don't you know. Not bad, of course not, but definitely beatable.
If the record is beyond your reach (or if breaking records is beneath your dignity), you could always try to equal the best Score of the Day.
