Golfing Holiday in Amsterdam Holland

Golf in Amsterdam / Holland Holland, or The Netherlands, is one of Europe's most popular travel destinations. Amsterdam's tulips and colourful sites, attract millions of visitors each year. Windmills, canals and bike-rides go hand in hand with this friendly nation. Golf is sport number 3 for the Dutch, with over 300.000 active golfers and more than 200 golf courses, some of them over 100 years old. According to Golf World’s issue of October 2011, Holland makes a good claim to have the most top courses in Europe. Some of these courses are in the top 10, being: Royal Hague (3rd), Kennemer (7th) and Noordwijkse (9th). On top of that, at number 35 is The Pan, at number 67 the Hilversumsche (home for KLM Open in 2012) and at 82: the Eindhovensche. A list of the best of the rest features 4 more courses in Holland: De Lage Vuursche, De Goyer, Noord Brabantse en the Roosendaelsche. Two golf courses in Holland are not even in the list: The Dutch, the recently opened golf course which was designed for featuring the 2018 Ryder Cup and the International at Schiphol airport which opened in July 2012. Golf is big business in the Netherlands, but it has not quite yet captured the minds of visiting golfers. However, those who do know, head to the Dutch North Sea coast to seek out the brilliant links courses, which rival the very best coastal courses in Britain and Ireland. Even before the 2013 issue of Golf World’s Top 100 of Continental Europe 2013 comes out next month, we can say: Honestly, it's true: “Holland is the NEW golf destination...”

Regions South Holland Some of the regions in South Holland are official regional groupings artificially created for various administrative purposes. Other regions have developed their own identities for historical, geographic or other reasons. These regions are sometimes undefined and overlapping.

Amsterdam The City of Amsterdam: a Pulsing Metropolis in a Compact Cityscape. No other city has so many sights per square kilometre. What makes Amsterdam so popular with visitors from around the world? Is it the city’s atmosphere, or famous canals? Is it its rich history, or theatres and museums? Perhaps it’s the cosy outdoor terraces, and fabulous shops and department stores? Or how about the beautiful parks, where there’s always so much to see and do? Then again – maybe it’s the freedom that Amsterdam offers with its tolerant “live and let live” mentality? In fact, it’s all these things that make Amsterdam such a one-of-a-kind destination. So, why not explore this compact city like a local? Just put on your walking shoes, or grab a bike, and go! No other city has so many sights per square kilometre. But Amsterdam is also a thriving urban centre – a pulsing metropolis in a compact cityscape. You’ll find that sights in the city centre are all within walking distance. You can easily discover other districts with plenty of tram, bus and metro connections to choose from. And don’t forget the fleet of ferries ready to take you across the IJ River. Must-see sights Which sights shouldn’t you miss? Although Amsterdammers believe that the only thing anyone “should” be doing is “as they please”, there are a few gems that number among the city’s top sights: famous museums include the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank House and the Hermitage Amsterdam. There’s the equally celebrated 17th century canal district, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2010. Other highlights include the cosy 17th century Jordaan district, the lively Pijp with its terrace cafés and Albert Cuyp Market, the Plantage district, where nature, culture, history and science go hand in hand, the Eastern Docklands boasting modern architecture and design, and the up-scale museum mecca that is the Oud-Zuid area. Then why not head to Westerpark area and discover Cultuurpark Westergasfabriek or the imaginative architecture of the Amsterdam School (Museum Het Ship). Amsterdam Noord is both fascinating for its daring architecture along the banks of the IJ and the historic dike houses in the Nieuwendammerdijk neighbourhood. The district of Oud-West also has some surprises in store including historic riding academy Hollandse Manege, the seven buildings of United Europe and a giant bookcase that’s part of a housing estate. Canal District: Canal houses and gardens Amsterdam is most famous throughout the world for its canals. The reflection of the historic facades, bridges and boats in the water creates a unique atmosphere. But the city’s web of waterways also offers plenty of surprises even city residents are often unaware of. Such as a number of canal houses that are open to visitors, featuring beautiful interiors dating from the 17th, 18th or 19th centuries. Perhaps the gardens hidden behind these houses offer the biggest surprise of all – with only the sound of chirping birds, these gardens offer an oasis of tranquillity, shutting out the hustle and bustle of the city around them.

The golfers will play 18 holes at golf course Rotte Bergen. The non golfers bring a visit to the beautifull town of Gouda with its world famous cheese market.

Golf course Rotte Bergen 'A serious course for serious golfers' The golf Rottebergen, "home course" of Golf club de Hooge Bergsche and Joost Luiten, is a beautiful 18 hole golf course situated on the River Rotte just north of Rotterdam. The challenging holes extend in a whimsical landscape where some impressive ponds and mature woodland and shrub plots. The unique character of the orbit lies in the hills. This hill provides an almost un-Dutch landscape. The holes are varied and offer golfers of all levels a challenge. The course will not be bored, how often you play. The Rottebergen has excellent practice facilities and a clubhouse particularly at the highest point of the mountain.

Gouda and the cheese market Cheese has been traded at the market in Gouda for over 300 years. Farmers would come from far and wide to bring their cheese stretchers to the market every Thursday morning. Farmers and dealers still do the same things they were doing all those years ago: bargaining and haggling. The typically Dutch Cheese Girls and Boys are present too. \At the same time as the Cheese Market there is also crafts market, a presentation of traditional crafts and products made in and around Gouda, such as earthenware, pipes, clogs, farm produce, treacle waffles and, of course, cheeses.

Day 3 afternoon: Visit Delft After finishing 18 holes and finishing the visit in Gouda all guests will visit the city of Delft together. All visits are with an English speaking guide. Nieuwe kerk The Nieuwe Kerk ("New Church") was built towards the end of the 14th century. The tower is about 109 metres high. You can climb 376 steps to enjoy lovely views of the town. Members of the Dutch royal family (the "House of Orange") are buried here. Willem I ("William the First") lived in Delft for much of his life and led resistance against the Spanish . He was assassinated at the nearby Prinsenhof in 1584. Vermeer The painter Johannes Vermeer (1632-1675) was born in Delft. His paintings often show life in the streets or homes of Delft. His skillful use of light and colour has made him one the most famous artists of the period known as the Dutch Golden Age (Rembrandt is another famous painter from this time). You can see some of Vermeer's paintings in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam or in the Mauritshuis in The Hague (Den Haag). Others are in major international galleries, including a collection in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Delftware Italian potters brought the art of making tin-glazed tiles to the Low Countries in the early sixteenth century. Native potters copied the technique and in the seventeenth century they began to manufacture the distinctive blue and white Dutch tiles. The best tiles and other tin-glazed pottery came from Delft, so the name of the town became associated with this product.

Day 4 Breakfast buffet at the hotel. At 08:30 AM our English speaking guide will welcome your guests at the hotel, followed by transfer to the Zaanse Schans.

Day 4 morning: Visit Zaanse Schans Zaanse Schans is the Netherlands in a nutshell: a town of traditional Dutch crafts and architecture, with six windmills, a wooden shoe workshop, a cheese farm and more. Some think it's an open-air museum, but actually, Zaanse Schans is simply a town full of extraordinarily well preserved architecture and traditions – one that's capitalized on its authentic atmosphere and added even more typically Dutch phenomena to the mix. Yes, Zaanse Schans is a bit touristic, but that's no reason to avoid it – its immersive approach to Dutch traditions it both a fun and informative day trip.

Day 4 afternoon: Lunch at Zaanse Schans The Crow restaurant is located in an authentic former 18th century granary in Zaanse Wormerveer. The building stands since 1976 at the Zaanse Schans. In the charming old Dutch interior and a typical Zaanse Smuiger one feels immediately at ease.

Day 4 afternoon: Golfers play 18 holes at de Zaanse Golf course Somewhat hidden in a beautiful area surrounded by ancient polders, is a challenging 18 hole golf course. Experts praise the high quality, visitors are surprised at so much hospitality, it's a good place. Especially on the, what some call it, beautiful clubhouse terrace. Beautifully situated overlooking the water and the green of hole 18. Water is omnipresent. You're barely 15 minutes away. See you soon!

After playing 18 holes the bus will pick the golfers up and bring them to Volendam to join the non golfers for 1 hour.

Day 4 afternoon: Non Golfers Visit Holland Country Side On this excursion we drive through typical Dutch scenery and the picturesque town of Volendam, a traditional Dutch fisherman's village situated on the shores of the former Zuiderzee. Carrying on by boat we visit Marken, an island linked to the mainland by a dike. Some of the inhabitants still wear the traditional Dutch costumes. This tour includes a visit to a real cheese farm!! Volendam Legend has it that the Volendam coat of arms is a compliment to the beauty of the Volendam girls ! No wonder that a famous singer sang the praise of this characteristic Dutch fishing village in the words: "Anyone who wants to see the real beauty of Holland, goes to Volendam". As a result of its completely insulated location, this village preserved its character for six centuries, also because of the tough vitality of the fishermen. The characteristic small houses, which together with the canals and the drawbridges form the most picturesque spots, present the visitor an atmosphere of geniality and romance. Don’t forget to visit the Volendam museum with the ’Sigarenbandjeshuis’, where cigar rings are on display. Marken We go with a boat from Volendam to Marken!! Nowhere in the Netherlands will you find such multi-coloured clothing as on Marken. And those who wear it are proud of it. Nothing in the world could persuade them to change into ready-made clothes. At one time the fashion of ages ago came to a standstill on Marken and that is why we can now speak of the Marken traditional costumes, unique in the world of folklore. And the same certainly applies to the Marken houses. The former 'terpen', mounds which safeguarded people from the high water, were used to build houses on.

Day 4 Evening Free time

Day 5 Breakfast buffet at the hotel. After breakfast the group will depart from the hotel for a day in North Holland. On our way to the afsluitdijk we will stop in the beautifull village Hoorn and the city of Alkmaar.

Day 5 morning: Visit Hoorn The glorious days of Hoorn lead back to the 17th century when it was one of the important VOC towns of Holland. Just like Amsterdam and Enkhuizen, the city of Hoorn became a very wealthy town. Nowadays, several dozen monuments and churches will make you feel the historical atmosphere. Enjoy a day trip to Hoorn and combine a tour through the historical center with shopping and dining. Hoorn is a small shopping paradise with many outdoor cafés and restaurants where you can relax. In case you are looking for action, Hoorn offers great water sports opportunities. The nearby dunes and beaches are ideal for nature lovers.
