For more than 50 years, the parkland course of the Regensburg Golf and Country Club has provided the unique setting for attractive golf in Regensburg and the region. As the oldest golf club in Regensburg and the surrounding area, it was founded in 1966 on the former Messerschmitt site in the west of the city and can now look back on a long history. In 1968, golf architect Donald Harradine planned his own golf course in the "Princely Thiergarten", which was officially opened in 1969.
The club is a founding member of the Leading Golf Clubs of Germany and is voted one of the best courses in Germany every year. However, the high attractiveness is not only due to the well-kept complex and the extraordinary tree population. Guests and members feel completely comfortable in the club, which is also reflected in the development of members. Today the club offers around 1000 members a sporting and social home. But tradition also means responsibility. In 1998, the golf architect Thomas Himmel was commissioned to revise the 18 holes of the course and adapt it to current standards in terms of tactics. A new driving range with sufficient practice opportunities on grass tees was built and a new caddy house was inaugurated to meet the increasing demand for electric parking spaces.
The club attaches great importance to the compatibility of golf and nature. This is expressed in the cooperation with the state association for bird protection and many other measures, such as putting out nesting boxes, keeping our own bee colonies and grazing areas with sheep. The association will continue to implement and develop nature conservation projects in the future.
