The 9-hole course was laid out and first played in 1969 as The British Golf Club Gatow, making it the second oldest course in Berlin-Brandenburg after Golf Club Wannsee and among some of the oldest in Germany. The Berliner Golf Club Gatow e.V., the german club, was founded in 1990 by British and German members of the British Golf Club Gatow, as a club within a club, which took over from the Allied Forces following their planned withdrawal from Berlin in 1994. On 1st October 1994 the newly founded Club became official “inheritors” of The British Club and its 9-hole course which by then could look back on 25 years of history and tradition. The Golf Club Gatow extended to an 18 holes course and becomes internationally recognized.
