Course of the Month

April 2019

Oirschot, Netherlands Netherlands

Pitch & Putt Golf Oirschot is unique in North Brabant. The Pitch and Putt course is located in a beautiful rural area behind catering companies De Stapperij and Dinercafé 't Kroegske. An orchard adjoins this course, which was constructed paying much attention to the envoironment. The course looks somewhat easier than it actually plays.

Founded in 2012, Oirschot gets off to a relatively gentle 50 metre start. The first is framed by some trees but they should not be in play and the hole is considered the easiest on the course.  The teeshot on the uphill 56 metre 3rd needs to guard against a steep fall away to the left of the green, which itself slopes from right to left. The straightforward 43 metre 7th is felt to be a prime birdie opportunity. A deep ditch runs parallel to the fairway on the left of the 64 metre eighth hole. The slightly uphill 67 metre 13th is Oirschot's Index One hole. Beware the bunkers on the left and a water hazard on the right. The tough 18th near the imposing clubhouse is lengthened to 60 metres for competition play. The teeshot must dice with a water hazard on the right and some sand trouble closer to the green.

Pitch & Putt Golf Oirschot has a fanatically active club of 40 members who come to play every week.
