PostSubject: Sennelager GolfClub   19/3/2013, 16:40

Amongst some used golf balls I recently bought -I can't afford new ones! - there was one with the name Sennelager Golf Club on it. I don't think there was such a club there in the fifties - does anyone know - is it a services club or German, and when would it have been built.

They are celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year, Cliffo. It has been a well supported club since I can remember.

So - it was built in 1963 - long after my time. Must have been a strain on the PRI funds, --- or was it charged to the defence budget as a tank training ground!

I was a member there from 91 - 93 and again 94-97. Spent many a happy sports afternoon and Friday afternoon there. I also visited the golf course on more than one occasion before taking up golf, due to being given a bum spot on many of my jumps at the parachute centre.

That's it then, Nobby - it was charged out as a parachute training ground!

There you go Cliff. If you look below our formation, you can make out the golf course.

No need for so much subterfuge. Nobby's Air photo (above) depicts;

(mid photo to R) The B1 (Expressway) road which is the boundary of the Trg Area at this point,

The Bad Lippspringe Sports' Fields (bottom to top) Para Centre, Football/Cricket/Rugby pitches, Golf Shooting Range + part of 9 hole course, 18 hole Golf Course.

In the distance top left - Ammo Depots and Athlone Barracks,

To the right of Golf Course the ALMA SA Ranges (with Mil Ring Rd built 1973).

All the Sports facilities mentioned were listed in the Army Sports Catalogue (as was) and completely legitimate. (Modern version is here ( http://)armysportcontrolboard.org/publications.html)
