Perfect place for long hitters – golf

At the golf tournament in Kirchzarten, the athletes from Heavenly Hell in the Upper Black Forest were delighted with the newly designed green plants.

. The best golf weather prevailed at the third golf tournament at Sparkasse Hochschwarzwald. The unexpectedly hot summer took a short break. Pleasant temperatures and occasional gusty winds ensured a successful start to the tournament after a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic. After the 2018 and 2019 tournaments, held at the Hochschwarzwald golf club, this year’s 17 three-man runs at the DEKA Cup golf in Kirchzarten and fought for the required qualification for the Southern Federal Finals, which took place in Öschberghof in Donaueschingen at the end of September becomes.

Olympian Stephanie Buehler of Eibach was waiting as a special guest on the seventh tee. Under the slogan “Meet and Beat the Olympian,” the former cross country skater took off as well and took on the challenge of getting close to the pin on hole 3 of the competition, which often went unsuccessful. Members of GC Hochschwarzwald also started.

Karl Friedrich (HCP 26.5) and Heiderose (HCP 29.0) Pfrangle from Saig were particularly compelling. The men’s captain placed third in his handicap category with 40 points. Heiderose Pfrangle, captain of GC Hochschwarzwald, finished the competition with a good fourth place and net 37 points. However, both have just missed out on the finals, with only the first-placed teams qualifying.

Marco Behling last played at Kirchzarten five years ago, which is now reflected in the score. Because after the renovation, two new tracks were added and the course of the game was radically changed. All greens have been redesigned and modeled in a similarly sophisticated manner. With 33 net points, Behling was behind the top, but he didn’t disappoint: “The track is great. The Greens are easy to play. The track is better now than it was before the renewal.”

Kurt Fischer, a longtime member of the GC Hochschwarzwald, who is now competing for the Hamburger Gut Waldhof, and Thomas Hellwig played no part in the fight for good jobs. Unlike the short hilly course at Hochschwarzwald Golf Club, the course at Kirchzarten offers ideal conditions for long hitters. Wide corridors, long corridors, hardly any lively neighborhoods, little exclusion, there are no puddles like the heavenly hell of Oberaltenweg. In addition, the path is mostly flat, which also impressed Pfrangle: “The path is flat, but very varied. Several trees are a challenge. The greens are quick and not easy with flag placement, but flags are not unfairly placed.”

Unlike Behling, he and his wife have played the new track beforehand and have taken a look at how the holes work and how the greens can be played. It was worth it in the end.
