Uwe Torps Dream of building a golf course in his hometown, Husum ,came true when he found a piece of land and joined by his wife Ann, Karin & Peter Cohrs, Hedi & Peter Lonsdorfer, Ute & Hotst Moltrecht, Hilde & Dr. Fritz Nesselhauf, Wilma & Peter Ohlsen, Irene Thordsen, set about putting it into reality. A meeting on Foehr with Scottish golf architect Donald Harradine sealed the deal & building began in January 1989. 40000 trees and shrubs were planted and the club won a prized second place in a SH competition for environmentally sympathetic building.
In 1990 the course opened. At the time there were only 50 members with Uwe Torp as elected president, who took it upon himself to whip up enthusiasm for the sport by inviting Husumers to the driving range. The first sponsored tournament took place in June that year hosted by BMW Raudzus. Building of changing and shower rooms, club rooms, offices and a Pro shop followed, with Uwe Torp himself financing windows, doors, tables & chairs, the bar and a spacious terrace. In 1994 he was able to hand over an up and running club with 250 members and an acceptable liability to Uwe Carstensen. Under his presidency the course was extended from 9 to 18 holes. Sadly Carstensen died in 2000 and Wilhelm Dethlefsen followed till 2005, when Anke Nerbert took over until 2009. Since then Werner Lonsdorfer has held the reins. The membership has swelled to over 600 and the club is a flourishing business with many employees.
Thanks to the unflagging efforts of the honorary board members, the head greenkeeper Martin Schurig and his team the 70 hectare golf course is a beautiful and successful enterprise.
Our golf Pro is Michael Wykrent and his wife Anna owns the Pro shop. In the office Gesa Molinas and Herta Merkel make all who come welcome, be they members or guests.

Use of the driving range: This year the club has newly built a driving range of the superlative. Equipped with a tee-line, a high speed scope video system and floodlights, the range is open 24/7 and offers the player fun and of course professional coaching of the highest level. The range is open to all; members or not the invitation stands. We look forward to your visit.
'Abschlag Schule ' is a project supported by the DGV/VcG to which all schoolchildren are invited. Figures have shown that over 15 years, 130000 students have at no personal expense either tried or successfully taken up the sport of golf. The project is supervised by club member Heike Froehlich the sports teacher at HTS and Pro Michael Wykrent. It is accepted as a school sport and students showing promise may qualify for a scholarship. Interested parties may enquire at the office.
