Glamping De Parel is also ideally suited as a location for a wonderful golf weekend. Golfclub Zeewolde is 3 minutes away from our park. The course is spaciously laid out on a 120 hectare site and has four 9-hole loops (Aak, Botter, Pluut and De Jol). The course has a park-like character and is located in the middle of nature. There is a wide variety of flora and fauna including birds of prey and several waterfowl, roe deer and foxes. The holes offer a lot of challenge for both the higher and the lower handicapper.
More than 3.8 meters below sea level, just outside the village of Zeewolde, lies Wijngoed Wilgenhorst.
