Amenities

Built in 1956, the championship course sits on 300 acres of tree-lined, gently rolling hills. In 2014, the course received a $1.8 million renovation to the greens complexes and tee boxes. In 2015, the approach areas were upgraded on all 18 holes, improving playability and scoring opportunities. The well designed course features generously wide fairways, large bent grass greens, and a gentle rolling hills terrain played through hundreds of old trees and farmland.

5 Steps to a Memorable Event
  1. Review the planning guide
    Read through the planning guide to understand the requirements and policies of the Stuttgart Golf Course. 

  2. Pick a date 
    Choose a date as soon as possible that will suit your participants, then call the Stuttgart Golf Course manager for availability at 0174-171-5926. 

  3. Fill out the required paperwork
    Obtain paperwork from management, such as Charity Event approval form which requires Garrison Commanader approval. 

  4. Review outing packages/upgrades 
    Consider your goals and budget to help determine which package is best for your event. Don't forget the food piece - contact Phil at the golf course restaurant (07154-837-1006) to find out your options. 

  5. Organize 
    Make sure you have active, aggressive "recruiters" for your event. Remember that the more golfers you have, the more your operating budget will be and the more fun everyone will have!

  6. Communicate to golf course staff at least 10 days before the event on how many players you have signed up, then again at 7 days, 3 days and day before. 

Event Planning Guide

The purpose of this planning guide is to assist organizational event coordinators. Experience has proven that organizational events allow for unit morale building and is an excellent means to introduce military personnel to the sport of golf. Many first time participants gain sufficient interest to continue with the sport. 

Golf courses have unique operational and maintenance requirements associated with facility use by persons of different skill levels. Those "first timers" or beginners could easily impose upon other golfers without being aware of it. To allow for maximum activity utilization and help prevent costly or irrepairable damage, there are some requirements we ask you to consider prior to requesting approval for organizational golf tournaments. 

  • Tournaments are not routinely approved during periods of peak use (weekends and holidays). Stuttgart Golf Course has reserved most Friday mornings for ID cardholder events, whether military or civilian. 
  • Tournaments may not be used to raise funds for units or charities without approval of the Commander of USAG Stuttgart. 
  • All food and beverages must be purchased through the Stuttgart Golf Club Restaurant. "Bring your own food" and personal coolers are not permitted. 
  • Tournament participation with less than 50 players warrants only partial closure of the golf course for the event. Groups with less than 50 players are welcome and will be sent out using a "jet-start" - teeing off on #1, 18, 17, 16, etc so that all players make the turn through #1 as quickly as possible, opening the course for regular play. 
  • Event coordinators must accept responsibility for ensuring that those new to golf are aware of basic golf etiquette. This includes replacing divots, repairing ball marks, keeping carts away from tees and greens, etc. To aid in providing this necessary information to participants, the coordinator or golf course staff will provide a briefing for all participants prior to teeing off. Please allow time for this 10 minute briefing when planning the start time of your event. 
  • The Stuttgart Golf Course dress code requires proper (spikeless) golf shoes or sneakers. Bare feet, sandals, and boots are inappropriate. Shirts with collars are preferred. Undergarment t-shirts are not acceptable. Shirtless is unacceptable. Tank tops, sleeveless, mesh, halter tops, swim suit tops are unacceptable. Trousers and shorts should be hemmed, no cut-offs.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. When does the golf season begin and end? Do your hours change?

The official season starts Apr. 1 and ends Oct 31.  This is the membership cycle that is pro-rated for annual green fees.  The course is open year-round, and we try to stay on regular greens as much as possible during the winter months.

The Pro Shop hours change according to the amount of daylight. The shop will open ½ hour after sunrise and close 1 hour before sunset except in high summer when we close at 7:30 p.m.

2. Do I need to sign up for a yearly membership to play a round of golf?

Absolutely not, we are an open golf course here to serve the military community and all US ID card holders.  A daily green fee can be paid and is at a steep discount compared to other German courses in the area.

3. What type of golf equipment is available to rent or buy?

We have plenty of full rental sets available at $10 per day.  We also have a fitting system available to special order sets for purchase.  We also stock beginner combination sets that include all the clubs you need to play.

4. Are there discounts available if I am a frequent golfer?

You can buy a 10-punch green fee card that offers a 10% discount on green fees.  The annual fee card option is your best bet, if you play more than 25 times annually.  We also have a Family Pass that covers all dependents.

5. Why are the golf rates & annual fees different for Active Duty, Officers, and Civilians?

The fee schedule and tier structure has been directed by IMCOM G9 and is the same at all Army golf courses.  It was also decided that E1-E5 should receive a discount according to Army Reg. 215-1; this discount has been ongoing for many years. 

6. What types of tournaments are hosted?

Since most golfers do not have an established handicap the course hosts “scramble” tournaments.  The scramble format is what many people refer to as best-ball, where each player hits a tee shot and then the 4-person team chooses the best position and everyone plays from there.  This process is repeated until the ball is holed.

The course hosts an 18-hole Opening Scramble in April. We also have a 9-hole Wednesday Night Scramble starting in May; this scramble will be held every Wednesday from May through August (except every first Wednesday of June, July and August).

The course also hosts some stroke play and match play events for the more advanced players, such as the Match Play Championship in May and the 36-hole stroke play Club Championship in August.

7. Are there any instructional programs to learn how to golf?

We have a contracted PGA European professional that offers individual and group lessons.  Contact the pro shop for further information.

8. Are there any youth classes available?

Yes. Please call the Pro Shop for further information. 

9. Are there any age restrictions?

We find that juniors aged 7 or older are best suited for learning the fundamentals of the game.  On the course, we prefer 7 years old and above.

10. How do I become a volunteer?

You should contact the Golf Course manager, who can give you the details on becoming a volunteer or golf course employee. Call 0174-171-5926.
