Amsterdam can serve as great hub for excursions, it also serves as great hub for golf trips. There are over 20 championship golf courses in the vicinity of the city. Some of which, such as the Kennemer, and the Hilversumsche are well-known, both have hosted the KLM Open on numerous occasion, and are even mentioned in the top-100 Continental Golf Courses. There are more exciting golf courses around though. Houtrak has hosted the Challenge Tour, and the International will host the Deloitte Ladies Open in 2013. But, as you know the Netherlands is reasonably flat, and has quite a lot of reclaimed land, which is ideal to create so-called polder-courses, or inland links courses, as we like to call them. Some excellent examples are Liemeer, de Zaanse, and Purmerend.
