Hooking and Slicing around Central Germany


This blog is authored by Jeff Tracy


Since 2008, the Hook and Slice Crossgolf Club of  Elster (Germany) has been hosting Crossgolf events around the German state of Saxony-Anhalt.  Their home course (see photo below) is played with real golf balls instead of almostGOLF balls, but the crossgolf spirit remains.  The Crossgolf Course Elster was built over a former gravel pit/landfill in 2007, there are 9 holes, and players feel like they are playing a combination of a golf course, a park, and a disc golf course all in one.  But beware!  Don’t miss the fairway on this course; the rough (or jungle) will swallow up any golf shot hit offline.  It’s hard to imagine how tough this course could be as an 18-hole course played with almostGOLF balls. http://uhc-elster.de/urbangolf/public/Bilder/Platz/.Platzubersicht_Kopie_-_600_m.jpgIt would be like the Cooper’s Lake Open on steroids.  Lot’s of carnage and high scores!  There is a link to their website (which includes detailed descriptions of each hole on their course) at the bottom of the page).

Their club plays numerous events on the Crossgolf Course Elster throughout the year as well as events at other venues around Central Germany.  The top 14 players at each event receive points that go toward the Central Germany Crossgolf Rankings and events held on their course receive points that go toward the Elbe Crossgolf Cup.  Last weekend, they played their final round of the year on the course and wrapped up the Crossgolf Cup race.  This year’s club champion is Stefan Hagendorf (Elster, Germany).  There is still one more event left (November 17th), which will decide the overall Central Germany Crossgolf Rankings.  The event will begin at 6:00 PM at Crossgolf Course Elster.  There is a € 10 entrance fee and the event will be played with almostGOLF NT glow balls.  The club champion will be honored at the event.  A link to their updatedPeggy rankings can be found at the bottom of the page.

Here is the translation from their site:

The battle for the Gold Crown Club champion and the challenger has finished the last year – has done it, he can take the throne and overthrows the last year’s champion. Although the Club Championship with the tournament of 28 October is completed, the battle for the Central German Cross Golf Ranking continues unabated.

Alex am Abschlag

Once again was hard fought but fair and the Cross Golf Course in Elster was again fully challenged to devour our golf balls. The whole then even when not playing friendly 4 ° C – at least initially. So you have to pack up already quite warm.

With the weather we were very lucky, even though it was quite foggyPhillip verzweifelt early, but then came out of the sun and warmed not only our hearts. As already become a good tradition, we were able to welcome back our friends from all over central Germany, even if we have one or two missing, such as the guys from Köthen.

And there was laughter, I think I can say – that was one of the funniest tournament, we have focused this year. Why was that, certainly knows. There are also available audio recordings, see what can be as fun crafts together. And for all the joy and Scherzerei was also played golf and not only the ball was very unhappy – because surely everyone had recovered his personal hate object. Following the tournament, there was again delicious grilled and drinks have been very happy to – be it tea or Hopfenblütentee. A special thank you we would like to dedicate to our one and only sponsor of the Bosch Car Service by Ronny Grunert. Here again a hearty thank you to Jessen!


Let us in conclusion yet the rankings because the youth field again only John Kase was there, he could of course also bring the first-place prize money.

For women, it was already too exciting, here are four women fought more or less forward.


For men, it was also known to be quite cramped and the winner came once again from our region.
