Golf Course Westerholt: 5 minute walk

In the year of 1993 the Golf Club Schloß Westerholt was founded as a member of the European Golf Association. The 18-hole Golf Course Westerholt was placed in the heart of the Ruhr area between Herten and Gelsenkirchen. It was successfully designed as a demanding endeavour for professional players as well as a course which could be played by not so experienced players.

The course is managed by a descendent of the ancient Schloß Westerholt clan Egon Graf von Westerholt. This noble family is settled here for some hundered years and gave their name to the old village.
