Multifaceted sport

Golf - the basic idea of getting a ball or object into a target with as few strokes, throws or shots as possible - has developed many new facets and disciplines. The best known are probably the golf variations Disc Golf, SwinGolf and Football Golf, which we briefly present below. What they all have in common is that they can be played without much previous knowledge or "course maturity", as is usually required for "normal" golf. They also let golf enthusiasts get a first taste of "real" golf. In addition, these golf offshoots take up far less time and money. And naturally, the Hamburg golf region offers many opportunities for these variations as well.

Disc Golf

This variant of the golf game originated in the 1970s in the USA. Strictly speaking, it is more like a variation of Frisbee. The goal is to throw the Frisbee from a fixed tee or drop point (similar to golf tee) into a permanently installed basket attached to a special device about 1.50m above the ground with as few throws as possible. On the respective lanes, trees or bushes as natural obstacles can make the game more interesting. There are currently 70 permanent disc golf courses in Germany - and more are constantly being added. Disc golf courses are located in the Hamburg golf region, among other places, here:

SwinGolf is an invention derived from old peasant games from France. It is the variant that resembles "real" golf the most. It is played with a special club whose head has three different lofts for hitting the ball different distances. The goal of SwinGolf is also to hit the ball into a hole with as few strokes as possible from the tee, with courses ranging from 80 to approx. 300 metres in length. The game is played on a specially prepared terrain.  
This new variant is especially interesting for non-golfers, because it has advantages for golf beginners:

    It can be played immediately, without difficult and long learning phases
    There is only one universal club
    The balls are bigger and softer (and therefore safer)
    SwinGolf is much cheaper than  normal golf

Soccer Golf

Soccer golf is a relatively new ball sport that originated in Sweden and combines golf with soccer. As with golf, the goal is to get a ball into a hole or net with as few strokes (or kicks) as possible. The ball is a standard soccer ball, the "club" is your own foot. A soccer round usually consists of 18 holes played one after the other on a soccer golf course. Soccer golf courses in the Hamburg golf region can currently be found at the following locations:
