This week TruGolf is headed to a world-class track in Germany. The Frankfurter Golf Club is located 10 minutes outside of Frankfurt’s city boundaries in a dense and secluded forest. The course is known for its tree-lined fairways and a lovely view of the Frankfurt skyline at the 18th hole, this course is considered a “must play,” when traveling through Germany.
