1. German Adventure Golf Masters in Winterberg
For the international players again in English.
For the first time ever there will be an official competition on a German Adventure Golf course. The German Adventure Golf Masters (GAGM)
will take place in Winterberg on the 23. and 24.09.
The competition ist open for all international players and is part of the World Adventure Golf Masters (WAGT)
The course is quite interesting. The style of the lanes is partly similar to that of the WAGM in Gumpoldskirchen, but the lanes are mostly shorter and putts are easier. Aces seem to be possible on several lanes. I only had a very short practice last year, so my course notes are rudimentary so far. But a friend from another club has had a more thorough practice and got a round with 7 aces.
I took detailed photos of all lanes last year which might be helpful for you to get a first impression of the course:
The photos are in the order of the lanes 1 - 18. If you keep the pointer above an image for a few seconds you will see a text showing which lane it is.
In addition to my photos the pictures on the website of the course owners can be helpful. You see the lanes in a top view, probably taken by a drone. This should be helpful to create putt notes:

Winterberg is a famous winter sport location in the middle of Germany. It is in the countryside within a beautiful scenery. Public transport is poor in that area, so if you come by train or plane it's recommendable to hire a rental car.
The Adventure Golf course is not directly in Winterberg. It's at the small village Hildfeld very close to Winterberg. As an example here is a link to a research for accommodations in or near Hildfeld at booking.com. There should be many hotels, b&bs and self catering flats available in the neighbourhood:
