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.
