When you storm towards the iconic meters-high bunkers on our course at Airport Weeze, and you brace yourself to run over them, you feel as if you’re running through a scene from a Hollywood action film. The bunkers are hidden under the grass or in the woods and, due to their steep climbs, they provide many calf-biting moments. But every time you have climbed to the top of a bunker, the phenomenal view over the grounds makes you quickly forget the pain again!
The name ‘Bunker Busters’ comes from the military world. There, the name is given to a bomb that is used to blast extremely hardened or underground targets, including military bunkers.
Did you know that Airport Weeze was originally a British military air force base? That explains the presence of the bunkers!
