The Golf Club Erlen opened in 1994 and is nestled in the hills of Thurgau, near the Constance Lake in the northern part of Switzerland. The community, mutual respect and an elegant approach shape this private golf. The Club possesses an 18-hole course as well as good practice facilities.

Many years ago I got a job offer from a company located in Erlen in the Swiss canton Thurgau. At the end I didn't accept the offer for various reasons but it was the first time I heard about Golfclub Erlen. It was nice to be back in Erlen and being able to finally play the course. The first hole starts with a medium length par 4 from the members tees. It looked like a new championship tee was added recently which makes the hole a tough start at 417 meters. Luckily I played from the members tees. :-) The first time where you get the sense that Golfclub Erlen isn't going to be a flat parkland course is on the 3rd hole. A short uphill par 4 at 323 meters. It is an up and over type of hole and if you are able to reach the upper plateau of the fairway from the tee you will have a short iron into the green. Interesting hole and I was pleased with an early birdie in the round. Another interesting hole is the short par 4 6th. The hole plays severly downhill and should definitely be driveable. The green is blind though so I didn't take the risk and played the hole safe on my first time playing the course but I will definitely check out my chances next time. The back nine at Golfclub Erlen are hillier than the front. Notable holes here are 12, 16 and 17. The first one being a very tough par 5 at only 400 meters. It will take your breath away, I promise. :-) The 16th hole reminded me a lot of Golf de Chantilly 18th hole at the Vineuil course. Not a bad reference for sure! And the 17th hole is a short downhill par 3 with beautiful views of the course and the Lake of Constance on a clear day. One (questionable) rule in championship golf is that a golf course should avoid blind shots as much as possible. So if that is one of your key criteria for a good golf course, then don't go to Golfclub Erlen. However, if you like to play a fun golf course with some quirky holes not seen everywhere, then you should definitely go and play a round there!

Played Erlen during the ASGM meeting and had a great time! The course is quiet hilly and quirky...and there are a lot of blind shots. I believe the clubhouse could be one of the best in the country! Thank you Christian Heller for your great hospitality!
