A Club For All Ages

We are a family-oriented club. Our 19 teams of all ages are playing successfully in the German golf league. We also recruit emerging talents from currently five local school teams ages 9 and 10 which are being lovingly coached and guided by one of our dedicated golf instructors. The HLGC was awarded the Junior Silver Medal from the German Golf Association.

The Grounds

Our club offers excellent training conditions, featuring a wonderful driving range and top-notch coaches. There are no restrictions in terms of opening hours – you may play anytime, unless we have a tournament going on which we invite you to participate in. Enjoy excellent cuisine from our patio overlooking the Elbe valley of origin across holes 17 and 18.

Our Mission

It is our mission to unite old traditions, a beautiful ambience, sophistication, and a love for the game. Cultivating friendship by our numerous social activities and the athletic challenge of playing one of the most beautiful and demanding golf courses in the country are part of our philosophy.

Our Community

Our club’s membership thrives on empathy and mutual respect. We appreciate our new members‘ becoming part of our community by getting involved as best as they can. Our coaches and staff are always happy to help.

Golf For Everyone

Luckily golf is no longer just a sport for the rich and famous, a trend that can be observed in other countries as well. Our members enjoy golfing as a family sport for all ages which can be practiced worldwide at any time.

We Care About The Environment

Golfing helps all generations connect with nature and especially promote personal health. Protecting our environment is essential. We were awarded the Silver Certificate for Golf & Nature from the German Golf Association.

Visitors Welcome

We gladly welcome visitors to play and hold events. Our parties are legendary. In the summer we offer a beautiful and family-friendly pool. Two tennis courts are free to use for members and guests alike. In the winter we enjoy our curling rink.

Leading Golf Clubs Of Germany

Along with 34 other excellent member-oriented golf clubs in the country we are part of a community of values called LEADING GOLF CLUBS OF GERMANY.

Location

Our club, which is located in a beautiful rural area devoid of any congestion, can be reached within a half hour from downtown Hamburg and even more easily coming from the south. Even members and guests hailing from western Hamburg agree that the Elbtunnel is more a psychological than an actual barrier.

Youth Department

Membership fees and donations provided by a charitable organization supporting young athletes in our region help offset costs associated with running our youth department.

In short, the The Hamburger Land- und Golfclub Hittfeld e.V. is a feel good club in every respect. We look forward to meeting you!
