Animal instincts in Dierenrijk
Children will enjoy seeing the elephants, polar bears, tigers and

De Gulbergen Golf Course
The Gulbergen Estate has an 18 hole par 70 course (length 5655
metres) and a 9 hole par 62 Old Course (length 3320 metres,
measured over 18 holes). These challenging courses are
characterised by the many water obstacles with sloping banks. The
'Sprookjesbaan' (Fairy Tale Course) has several holes in which the
greens are located on the 'hill'; making it both difficult yet at
the same time unique.
