Your route starts at Camperparc Stee in Lhee. You will soon drive through Dwingelderveld National Park. You cycle through fragrant coniferous forests and along rolling heaths and fens. With a bit of luck you will encounter the sheep that graze this area, a look back in time. Further on you drive through the woods of the Echtenerzand. At The Green Gift you can get off and visit the cozy tearoom. Also take a look at Buitengoed Weerwille! You can go here for a cup of coffee or tea with homemade cakes, lunch or snacks with a nice drink. You look out over the first Pitch & Putt course that was built in 1998 in Ruinerwold. This 18-hole course is beautifully embedded in the landscape. Differences in length and obstacles such as sand bunkers, trees and ponds make each hole challenging and unique. The route then takes you along the Wold Aa and the vast meadows. Just past Benderse you can take a look at the authentic sheepfold that stands on the edge of the Dwingelderveld. You cycle back to Lhee via the beautiful green village of Dwingeloo.

The first Pitch & Putt course in the Netherlands was built in 1998 in the characteristic Drenthe landscape in Ruinerwold. As an extension of the Herenboerderij Lange Tieme, this 18-hole course is beautifully embedded in the landscape. Differences in length and obstacles such as sand bunkers, trees and ponds make each hole challenging and unique. Nice to join in combination with a walk or bike ride through the beautiful surroundings! They are happy to serve you a cup of coffee or tea with homemade cakes, lunch or drinks with a tasty snack on the terrace or in the cozy living room.

Sights

Kasteel Oldengaerde

57
7991RT Westerveld

Oldengaerde is one of the five manors who have stood in or around Dwingeloo. The house was built in the first half of the 15th century by Reynolt van Echten. Oldengaerde stayed in the family for about 240 years. Because of their origins and their possession, they were admitted to the Knighthood of Drenthe. In 1717 the manor was radically renovated and a facade in Vingboons style was added. In 2013 the estate was transferred to Stichting Het Drentse Landschap.
