It is pretty uncommon to see and old golf course reopening after more than 50 years of closing. This is why we would like to dedicate this page to our German friends who are resurecting the Oberhof Golf Course. The reopening is planned to be in 2007 ... for its centenary.

The club was created in 1907 (the course opened the same year) and was in existence until 1950. During its last years, the course was mostly used during the spring and fall, as in summer cows were grazing on the fairways!       The course in 1927 (Guide Plumon).
