Martin Meinert (Hamburg)


That’s me: Me and my husband have been playing golf since 2006. We quickly came across the German Rainbow Golfers. That was a moment that changed our lives. New friendships have grown over the years. To overseas. With the GRG, the Eurogames in Helsinki and the Gaygames in Paris have been our highlights so far. The annual GRO is a must for us. In recent years I have already performed many different tasks within the association. I was the 2nd board member for many years, organized regional rounds for many years, am currently organizing the Hamburg Rainbow Masters and am active in member support.


I am a GRG ambassador because I would like to promote gay golf and the club. Golfing under the sign of the rainbow is golfing with friends. It is also important to ensure visibility and tolerance on green fairways as well. We achieve this through the many regional and national events and through our own outing on 19 holes.


What I would like to say: whether lesbian, gay or bi, whether trans or inter, whoever you are – we look forward to seeing you!

I am a GRG ambassador because I want to share the fun of golf with others and use the sport to break down boundaries, barriers and prejudices related to LGBTQIA+.

Ann-Katrin Thimm (Frankfurt)


That’s me: I live and work in Frankfurt am Main, but I also like to spend time in NRW through my partner. Golf has been with me my whole life, unfortunately not as much as a game at the moment due to time constraints. The courses in the Rhein-Main-Neckar-Odenwald region are well known to me and the GRO is always a fixed date in my calendar.


I am a GRG ambassador because I have been involved in all activities and developments relating to our GRG family since 2012 and I am very happy to be a part of it. There is a lot to discover and I am happy to answer any questions you may have. I am fundamentally convinced of the goals and work of the association and would like to help more people to learn about it and become enthusiastic about it.


What I would like to say: Let’s spread the rainbow golf feeling!

Stephan Zimmermann (Frankfurt)


This is me: I’m a gay dad who first attended GRO in 2015 and have been hooked on the idea ever since. I live alone. My children are 28 and 29 years young and live independently. I love golf, especially as part of the GRG. I’m a team captain at the GRG Team Trophy and a regular participant at the GRO.


I am a GRG Ambassador because I am passionate about golf and would like to share this passion with interested, like-minded golfers. The idea of the German Rainbow Golfers inspired me from the moment I first contacted them. I am very happy to be available as an ambassador for the Frankfurt region and the surrounding area. But I would be happy to see whether this will result in regular rounds.

Erika Albert (Heidelberg)


That’s me: Since I only discovered golf for myself at the age of 60, the focus is less on the sport and more on the community and regular exchange.


I am a GRG ambassador because I want to make it easier for interested queer golfers who have heard of German Rainbow Golfers e.V. to enter the community and at the same time support them in making social contacts with like-minded people.

Verena Reichert (Heidelberg)


That’s me: human first and foremost. Golf enthusiastic, but also hiking and cycling, culturally interested and socially committed.


I am a GRG ambassador because I have known the German Rainbow Golfers community since 2012 and feel comfortable with it. I am the contact person for golfers and those interested in golf who would like to get to know us in the Heidelberg and Rhine-Neckar area. I also like to do something with like-minded people, even beyond golf.

Patrik Knupp (Rombach – Aarau/ Switzerland)


That’s me: I’ve been married for a few years and am trying to establish a network of Rainbow Golfers in Switzerland. I’ve known the German Rainbow Golfers since 2021 and I personally think it’s a brilliant thing!


I am a GRG Ambassador because: “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated” – Confucius (551 BC)
I try to do my best to play golf regularly. And it’s definitely more fun in a rainbow community!


What I would like to say: I am looking forward to the network and the exchange.
