This exclusive German golf residence between the Black Forest, Lake Constance and Switzerland just got a star endorsement
By Kent Gray
The pictures speak for themselves. The online reviews are glowing. The facilities world-class. But if you’re still not convinced The Öeschberghof is one of Germany’s leading golf destinations, lend Martin Kaymer your ear. The two-time major champion and former world No.1 has become an ambassador for the 45-hole resort after what was clearly an inspiring stay with his family at the 5-star facility in Donaueschingen in the Baar region of south-west Germany recently.
“The facilities are superb, from the golf courses and the academy to the restaurants and the impressive hotel. I immediately came to love everything here.” Opened in 1976 and constantly updated since, the resort now boasts two 18 hole courses, a nine-holer, indoor academy, 5000sq metre spa and four restaurants. They’re planning charity and junior tournaments with Kaymer’s help and interestingly a special programme inviting guests to learn how the European Tour star goes about his daily practice routine during the colder months. Few pros work as hard on their games as Kaymer and fewer still are as interesting as the three time Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship winner. Time to book a stay?
