Short description of the project The Berlin-Bad Wannsee Golf and Country Club, founded in 1895, is situated at the south-west of Berlin, and with 1600 members it is one of the largest and most famous golf clubs in Germany. The long-established 27-hole golf course is set idyllically in the mature wooded Brandenburg countryside and features a variety of gently rolling fairways. Roland Specker, known because of the "Wrapped Reichstag", is Chairman and a guarantor for an exclusive membership.
