The Hilversumsche Golf Club, at Soestdijkerstraatweg 172 near Hilversum, is located in the middle of the forest and heathland that is so characteristic of the Gooi. The forest course is over 100 years old and that historic character can be found on all holes.
The course was originally designed by the famous track architect Harry S. Colt and, in terms of its integration into the landscape and further design features, is a typical "Colt course". The well-known track architect Kyle Phillips has taken over the track in more recent times; the last adjustments were completed in 2010. The track thus meets the requirements of the time, while retaining its original character: the "Hilversumsche" measures 6,303 meters for men''s back-tees and 5,391 meters for ladies'' back-tees.
The Hilversumsche has hosted the Dutch Open 27 times, the last time in 2012. The narrow narrow fairways, the long par-4s and the well-positioned greens are both a real challenge for every golfer at every level, as well as the background for the magnificent, peaceful landscape.
