playing the best golf in years ahead
With WINSTONgolf, the sport of golf has undoubtedly gained a new place of pilgrimage. Just outside Schwerin, the capital of the German federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, in one of Germany's most breathtaking landscapes, an unparalleled 45-hole golf course awaits golfers. The two eighteen-hole golf courses at WINSTONgolf are listed in all of the top international and national golf course rankings. The golf course has garnered several awards and was recently named as one of the 30 best golf courses in Europe by a trade magazine. Joost Luiten also finds the inland links course impressive and regularly trains there. 'This golf course is one of my absolute favorites,' says the professional golfer. 'The exceptional landscape, the enormous dunes, the challenge of not being able to see the green from the tee-off —in short: it's absolutely insane!'
Joost also has outstanding things to say about WINSTONopen, the competition course. 'This course remains in optimal condition throughout the year; the greens have a lot of different levels and undulations, and it is unbelievably quick.'
The generation of international professional golfers active prior to Joost's have golfed here on the European Senior Tour since 2012. 'I have to agree with what Paul Wesselingh, the winner of the WINSTONgolf Senior Open 2014, said', declares Joost. 'Wesselingh said about the WINSTONopen that it's an impressive course in very good condition; it's an honor to be able to golf here, and he's quite right.'
Joost's enthusiasm for WINSTONgolf is not one-sided. The successful golfer has been supported by the golf course designers since April of 2010. 'We were convinced from the start that Joost had a great future ahead of him in golf', says Jenny Elshout, managing director of WINSTONgolf. 'We have a lot in common—I mean more than just our Dutch roots, and that makes us a great team. All of our employees are right there with Joost whenever he competes in a tournament. If he wins, everyone in the clubhouse starts celebrating. We are very proud to be able support this exceptional golfer and to help guide him on his way to success from close by. Speaking of the path to success, we also have this in common. WINSTONgolf has only existed for thirteen years and can actually still be considered one of the youngsters.'
Still, the golf course has been able to make a name for itself like no other in Germany in a very short amount of time. Major tournaments, such as the Final Tour, the German club championships, and the European Senior Tour have been and continue to be organized here on the golf courses. Prizes like the Golf Magazine Award hang on the wall. And golfers are excited about the golf paradise that offers, in addition to the top courses, a large training area with the par-3 course WINSTONkranich, the driving range, and the golf school WINSTONacademy. And for golf vacations, the golf paradise has three exclusive partner hotels that provide every charm and service to the golf course.
