Came to Princenbosch to try out the new par 3 course and play the 9 hole B loop, that's usually quite busy. The new 6 holes designed by Alan Rijks on the par 3 course are really nice to play. This is an example of the new short courses being designed lately. The par 3 isn't a series of holes to fill up an empty piece of land next to a golf course. But it's a serious challenge with a lot of shots you can have on the full size holes. The undulating fairways and greens makes playing here a lot of fun and it takes less time. I did not play with the led lights but absolutely will come back to try that out. The B-loop is more technical then A and C. From the routing you can see it took an effort to finish at the clubhouse but the finishing hole with the double green is very nice. There are some great holes on the B Loop it's my favorite at Princenbosch. Hopefully the club house will open soon because they have the best apple pie I ever had at a golf course.

Geijsteren is one of the oldest courses in the area. Originally 13 holes in the woods where you had to replay 5 since 10+ years they have added the so called 'water holes' wide open holes with plenty of water. Normally the maintenance is very well but it seemed that they had a rough winter. When I played it early March the greens and area's around the green where not really good. We played during the lock down so the club house was semi-open that was very nice. What is nice as well at Geijsteren is that the green fee is valid the entire day (if there is room on the tee of course) this is getting very rare in The Netherlands. I would suggest to play 18 have lunch and play the first 13 holes again, in my opinion they are nicer than the 5 water holes. The terrace is beautiful in summer with great views and end of May they have aspergers that are cooked to perfection...

Played the back nine in the beginning of March during the lock down. All though the 10th is probably one of the most difficult back nine starting holes in the Netherlands, due to the steep left to right slope, we managed ok. The greens however of all holes were in terrible shape.. I don't know what happened here but it looked like they had a huge amount of fungus during winter. I understand from other reviews the expect it to be better in 2 months, I really hope so because De Hooge Rotterdamsche is a really nice course. The big hill in the middle where the club house is located in the center of the course. to walk this course is not for the fainthearted it can be pretty tiring to walk up and down that hill 4 times. But the holes are great I have played there many times and really enjoyed the challenge. The first couple of holes are nice and there is a drive-able par 4 (6th) the 9th is pretty. I like the short blind par 3 11th, looks simpel but a par is good here. 15 and 16 are bit too tight nut on 17 you can take out your driver and send it. The 18th is a challenging finishing hole were a par is great. So hopefully they will get the greens fixed and I'll definitely come back again.
