The original course here at Frankfurter Golf Club was built way back in 1913, but the present course is largely the work of Harry S. Colt's team sixteen years later. Since then there has been only a single round of renovations, which were carried out in 2002 by German designer Kurt Rossknecht, who concentrated on improving the bunkers and on making the course a bit longer without doing violence to the holes. For its first few decades, the Frankfurter enjoyed a peaceful, woodland setting, and Colt kept the fairways correspondingly spacious. Now, however, players must endure the constant jumbo jet traffic to the nearby Frankfurt Airport. Nevertheless, the course continued to attract tournament play into the 1980s, when the German Open frequently came there, but Mark McNulty's 1987 score of 25 under par made clear the need to toughen things up before any more championships could be held at Frankfurter.

One of the oldest Courses in Germany they celebrated their 100th Aniversary in 2013. It is a great Parkland-Course Layout! PAR 71 Course with only 2 PAR 5 Holes, but very long PAR 4 (some over 400 m) holes and a lot of trees right and left, but not too narrow. The greens are quite large, but make sure to get yourself a strokesaver as the greens are quite sloping and therefore you need to hit the green on the right spot. The course hosted on numerous times the German Golf Championships and 12 Times the European Tour German Open. The Frankfurter Golf Club Team has won the German title several times. It is a real test for your golf, but it remains fair. There are no water hazards. The Club life is just great and all the members and the staff are very friendly. Lovely clubhouse ! The only issue is the Driving Range as it is only +/- 170 m long and so you hit your longer shots into a Net. And as it is very close to Frankfurt International Airport there is a lot of noise. However you will get use to it quite fast as planes are landing almost every minute. It is still a great golf course!
