Where is Farmersgolf from?
Farmersgolf was invented and first played in the Achterhoek on the pastures of the Weenink Cheese Farm in Lievelde (the Netherlands).
It is the first farm golf course in the world. From a historical perspective, the Weenink Cheese Farm in Lievelde, the Netherlands is to Farmersgolf what St. Andrews in Scotland is to classic golf.
The number of farm golf courses is growing rapidly: from just a few farm golf courses in early 2004 to more than 170 Farmersgolf locations in several countries by June 2010.
