Golf mit Hund
On these courses of the Golf Region Hamburg, your four-legged companion is welcome to come with you!
"No Ladies, no dogs" was the motto on many English golf courses a few decades ago. But while women (especially in Germany) have long since conquered their place in golf, the topic of "golf with dogs" is still frequently discussed. Nowadays, however, more and more golf players do not want to do without their best friend, even when travelling and playing golf. After all, this way the dog is able to get some fresh air. And hardly any four-legged friend will resist spending a few hours together with his master or mistress. This demand has already been recognized by several golf courses in the golf region of Hamburg and so more than 10 golf clubs in the golf region of Hamburg are already looking forward to welcoming golfers with dogs on the course.
Tips for golfing with a dog
Those with little experience taking their dog on a golf course should consider a few small tips, however:
- Even if the opinion prevails among many golfers that there are only flat courses in the north: In the golf region of Hamburg some golf courses are hilly and accordingly demanding. Owners of smaller dog breeds should therefore inquire in advance how easy the terrain is. Especially in summer, a round of golf can quickly become a strain for humans and dogs.
- Mutual consideration is absolutely a question of etiquette, even if most dog owners can hardly imagine that there are people who would prefer completing their round of golf without a four-legged companion. This should always be respected.
- Going for a round of golf doesn't mean going for a walk. Before you start your round, your dog should take care of all its small and big business once again.
