De Zalze offers an international 18 hole championship golf course, your back yard, your play honed day after day by gravity's grip wickedly combining with water features, historic oaks and river, all ingeniously weaved into the Peter Matkovich design. They demand accuracy and respect, but reward with deep satisfaction.
