The Golf Course

 

The golf course designed by top golfer Ian Woosnam in combination with Mastergolf is perhaps the most beautiful in the Netherlands. The design of the course makes optimal use of the very hilly terrain – with differences in altitude up to 14 meters, has challenging water hazards and also offers the non-golfer an unimaginable view from the large terrace of the clubhouse.
The holes are very different, both in layout and in terms of challenge, from an extremely long hole without bunkers to a very short hole with no less than eight bunkers surrounding the green, from narrow straight holes with descending fairways to artful doglegs with sometimes even blind shots. The greens are large, fast and very well thought out, designed in such a way that a large number of exciting pin positions are possible. In addition the greens are alternately protected by water hazards, strategically constructed bunkers and serious height differences, or a combination of both.
Between the holes there is a natural hilly landscape, so almost everywhere on the course you have the pleasant feeling of being the only on the course. That pleasant feeling is enhanced by the beauty of many materials used, such as the beautiful Portuguese natural stones of the paths, the facing and the indication of the holes. The clubhouse is also largely made of this beautiful stone, making everything on and around the complex a beautiful and harmonious whole.

The course was designed by top golfer Ian Woosnam in collaboration with Mastergolf. Woosnam did not play much with his just 1.64 meters in height. But the little man from Wales became number one in the world. In addition to the 47 global professional victories, the ‘Wee Welshman’ was hung green in 1991 at Augusta National after he had won The Masters. This makes The International the first golf course in the Netherlands designed by a Major winner.

In addition to his individual performance, Ian Woosnam has also proved to be a great team player in the Ryder Cup. The biennial event where the best golfers from Europe and America compete against each. He participated eight times as a player and gained 16.5 points from 31 matches. He gained more than 90% of his points in the foursomes and fourballs with various partners. In 2006 he was allowed to lead as captain of the European Team. He did that with great dedication and the final result of Europe 18.5 -America 9.5 this equalled the biggest victory for a European Team ever.

All this knowledge and experience has been found in Woosnam’s qualities as a golf course designer, those design qualities supplemented with those of Mastergolf, have led to The International becoming a top course which is capable of hosting world class tournaments but also a delight for beginners.
