The parklike Par 72 course can be reached within approximately 20 minutes, by car, from Frankfurt's city centre and surrounding districts.

The layout and design of the course invites you to play risk and reward or safer strategy golf. Water awaits errant and foolish shots.

Take the time to enjoy a great variety of plants, fruiting trees, flowers and general natural habitat whilst you play the game.

In almost every season nature can be enjoyed in all it's facettes and is often in abundance.

The course is a Dr. Wolfgang Siegmann design.

10 Greenkeepers attend to the course. Their work is highly regarded.

Training Facilities

Complimenting the Driving Range, the Pitch & Chipping area and the Putting Green, we are also equipped with a Flight Scope and also two cutting-edge Scope-Video systems, available also for left handers, for teaching activities.

28 practice balls for the driving range can be obtained at a cost of € 1,00 for members of the club. For junior members the cost is € 0,50.
Access to the balls can be purchased in the Proshop, or if the Shop is closed, in the Secretarie's office.

Flightscope and Scope-Systems

The Flightscope is a radar tracking device which measures the flight of the ball therefore calculating the movement of the club through the impact zone. Data and Information on, for example, clubhead movement, speed, ball trajectory, spin rates and distance are extremely acurately measured and can be analysed, in conjunction with the Scope Systems visual informations, allowing incredibly excellent options for the trainer to understand what is happening during the player's shots.

Handicap Tables and Ratings

The Handicap Index of each individual player coupled with the individual course rating with regard to degree of difficulty of any given course make it possible for unequal players to compete amongst one another in a fair fashion.

Rating of the Courses

To be exact, the better player must play each hole with fewer shots in order to play the hole in the same amount as the player of lesser quality.

Our junior programme seeks and succeeds in giving support to our, over one hundred, junior players. This task is one of our favourites and we go about it with diligence and care.

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.

These forms are necessary for the application for Membership of the Bad Vilbeler Golfclub Lindenhof.

The Golfcourse is generally very easily accessible.

From the city centre of Frankfurt, Frankfurt Airport, from Oberursel, Bad Homburg, Hanau and Offenbach the route takes you from the A661 and the B3 then take the exit Bad-Dortelweil. From all these directions a drive of approximately only 20 minutes can be expected.

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 character of the clubhouse is formed by by it's innersquare courtyard which offers a peaceful and protective ambience especially during the spring and autumn months.

The most special point of attraction, however, is the Terrasse which lies on the banks of a lake within which Japanese Koi Carp inhabitat it's waters.

Children enjoy feeding these colourful fish from the footbridge. for the adults it is much more interesting watching the toils, foils and heroics taking place as golfers, out on the course, battle it out on hole 9 and especially those finishing their rounds over the lake to the 18th green.

During the evening hours the atmosphere on the terrasse can become very romantic.

The restaurant anjoys an aura of sedateness. The kitchen and it's cellar compete with one another on a very high niveau without being snobbish.
The clubhouse has 200 qm of functional space within which, amongst other things, post tournament events and prize givings take place.

The Gourmet Temple – our halfway house – is situated adjacent to the Tee Box of hole number 10. It is a very, very popular place.

Guests (“Sundowner”-players excepted) receive a 1,50 Euro discount when presenting their Greenfee ticket at the Gourmet Tempel resp. in the club restaurant.

It is closed as of October 28th 2022 and opens again in spring 2023. Golfers may take a break after hole 9 in the club restaurant.

Besides offering a warm reception, fresh fruits, various cakes made by the local bakery Rumpf, a selected variety of teas and coffees, freshly on-site baked croissants and pretzels, drinks by the Hassia-Group, Frankfurter sausages, beef sausages or – when ordering via intercom at the tee of hole 9 – e.g. fresh tarte flambée can be enjoyed there.

  • storage and preparation for play of golf bags

A fact that needs to be admitted: Golf is sometimes frustrating even for the most experienced golf professionals. Keep calm, continue and enjoy it when the frustration turns, once again, into joy and pleasure.

A lot of sports – like soccer or ski jumping – are often operated from a couch, by staring at a TV screen.

A simple and enjoyable possibility to come into initial contact with our wonderful game is offered followingly Beginners Training, for groups of 2-8 people to enjoy their first steps.

In order to be allowed to play "on course" golf without being accompanied by a golf professional, it is necessary to have the so-called "playing licence” which can be considered as a kind of “driver’s licence for the golf course”. It ensures your protection and the protection of other players.

As an incentive for your business partners and/or employees, we offer individually tailored golf events for business corporations. Working together, we can develop a golf-package that meets your expectations and requirements.
