Episode 35: Dutch Golf Series #6 – Rockets Over Wild Farm & The Atlantic Wall

Over the course of researching the history of golf in the Netherlands two golf related stories have really resonated with me.

In this episode we are joined by Stephen Zivin and to investigate the initial history of a Charles Hugh Alison design at De Wildhoeve in The Hague, now the home of the Royal Hague Golf Club. The story is intertwined by its' original owner, a gentleman by the name of Daniel Wolf

Robin Bargmann makes one final cameo to tell us the story of Kennemer Golf & Country Club during and after WW2.

We also take a quick look at the effects of WW2 on Domburgsche and Noordwijkse.

Stephen has written a great article on this subject matter for McKellar Magazine #7.
