This course is located in a water protection area and because of that it is not allowed to use any chemicals, not even on the greens. Thus it is marketed as Germany's first 100% ecological course and a lot of work went into developing appropriate greenkeeping practices. Opinions will be divided between proponents of sustainable golf and those caring more for perfect playing conditions. As it is, the maintenance standards are a bit on the rough side and the greens too bumpy to reward good putting.
However, the location of the course is pretty good, close to Munich and yet in a rural area with mountain views. The site is not too bad either, gently undulated and with some natural features, but the routing is very questionable. There is a long walk to the first tee and back from the 18th green and between holes 12 and 13 the members jokingly speak of a "walking only par 5", when a forest has to be traversed. The terrain is far from severe, so a number of alternative routings are imaginable.
A few interesting holes are present and at least one unusual design with the long par 4 18th. Normally holes of that length aren't reachable in regulation by average hitters, but here they have a fighting chance to cut the corner over a huge pond. Most of the other challenges are fairly standard, though, so it's up to the scenery and the uncrowded tee sheet to breathe life into the round.
