In the year 1994 the Golfclub Rickenbach, located in the southwest of Germany, appointed Thomas Himmel with the design and planning of the 9-hole extension. The relatively undulating terrain offers attractive views and gave ground for some very interesting golf holes. To combine the new with the old holes, two of the existing holes had to be changed and relocated. The driving range was completely reclocated and all existing bunkers were renovated and redesigned. The 18-hole course was opened in 1996.
