Munich North - Eichenried: Hosting the BMW International on the European Tour, this Kurt Rossknechts design which opened in 1989 is known on the European Tour as a course where the pros can go low.  Padraig Harrington was once -22 after only 36 holes, which is the current record 36 hole low for any course on the European Tour.  John Daly won here with a 72 hole total of -27 in 2001 and the following year Thomas Bjorn won at -24.  A third nine holes added after the 2001 Event (also designed by Mr. Rossknechts) has changed the routing for the members, although the traditional tournament routing remains the same.  That sequence of holes shown here includes the 17th, which no longer exists for normal play. With lots of water and split fairways the course on paper doesn't look so easy.  Under normal conditions maybe it would play tougher, but in late August with a lot of moisture, no wind and relatively flat greens the course sets up for lots of birdies and eagles.  Maybe that's what the fans like because the event is one of the most popular on the European Tour and its broadcast is eagerly anticipated on The Golf Channel by fans in the U.S.

Guenter Kujat has used the APCD to make a superb recreation of Eichenried for Links 2001 and may downloaded for free from the Links Corner.
