The Jack Nicklaus designed course at Gut Larchenhof features several wateer hazards around the finishing holes. Accuracy will be especially rewarded this year due to slightly firmer greens.
There will be little run on tee shots on a course that is generally played in quite windy conditions, with few trees to protect.
