Delightfully Dutch!

Welcome to the Zaanse Golf Club and its course, a living illustration of Dutch history. The Wijdewormer, where the course is situated, was a lake drained in 1626 by numerous windmills. The newly created polder is lying thirteen feet below sea level.

The holes of the “old nine” ring a deep central lake, caused by a breach of the dyke during the flood of 1825. Still visible are the remnants of the outdoor swimming pool that existed here before the golf course was constructed.
Even the whales in our club’s logo refer to the rich history of the region.

Designed by Gerard Jol and extended to 18 holes in 2008, the Zaanse poses a special challenge whenever the wind is blowing from the southwest. This is particularly true for the second hole, a Par 3 that is commonly regarded as one of the toughest in Europe.
5 teeing grounds are situated on top of the massive ring dyke, offering both interesting elevation differences and imposing views.

A challenge for both beginners and experienced players, the Zaanse is delightfully Dutch.
