Together with our Junior coordinator and our specialist junior Trainers we strive to encourage and promote sport activities as well as the social development of our aspiring golfing offspring. Embedded in our work is the support we give regarding the contact amongst, and with, the adult membership.

Our competetive juniors are introduced into the club's teams as early as seen fit, enabling an early introduction into regional and then national Tournament play.

An insight into our concept can be read by viewing the following broshure. Our programme is in constant change and development depending on the constantly evolutionising demands we choose to embrace.

The responsibilites for this programme are shared between our delegated Junior Captain, Junior Trainers, DGV qualified Trainers and our club management.

History

The most southern point of the region of the Wetterau (where the golf course Lindenhof is situated) was first inhabited by settlers of the Neolithic era 7,000 years ago. The landscape surrounding the golf course was and indeed is continually shaped and moulded by the river Nidda which winds its way around the course. In earlier times its was known for its abundance of fish as it meandered through the lands. The Romans appreciated the fertility and the microclimatic conditions of the southern Wetterau which is one of the warmest regions of the State of Hessen. The golf course lies above an old Roman road, which, at that time joined two earlier Roman estates. Following the retreat of the Romans in the year of 269 after Christ, the settlement of this fertile region continued and flourished.

In the late Middle Ages the village of Dortelweil and its district, where the course substantially resides, was adjoined with the neighbouring Free Imperial City of Frankfurt. The city sought to develop a close relationship to the village. In order to impede the siege of Frankfurt, the villagers of Dortelweil destroyed their entire harvest and provisions. This resulted in the enemy setting the whole village in flames. Due to its willingness to make such large sacrifices, the Free Imperial City of Frankfurt thus felt henceforth united to the small village of Dortelweil. This connection, however didn't spare the indebted and bound village much sorrow and grief during the ensuing centuries of war and such.

The binding services to the city are long since fulfilled. The once small and rural village is now an integral estate within the town of Bad Vilbel which continually succeeds against any naturalisation attempts from the City of Frankfurt.

The family of the Barons of Holzhausen, many of whom were elected to the mayorship of the city of Frankfurt, decided during the 18th century, to build a country estate in Dortelweil. Today, a part of this country estate forms an important area of the golf course Lindenhof. Many established families of the parish of Dorteweil and their neighbouring village of Gronau have generously contributed their land enabling the construction of the golf course.

The initial idea to build the course was born in the year of 1987 by the long established farmer Otto Jehner from Dortelweil itself. The course is a Hannover based Dr. Wolfgang Siegmann design.

The design of the clubhouse is a result of the collaberation between the Munich based architects Prof. Fred Angerer and Peter Gehring.
