Geography The marker is placed in recreatiegebied Spaarnwoude, close to one of the club houses and parking lots of the Amsterdamse Golfclub. You can access it directly by car via the Bauduinlaan.
Procedures This beacon is used to mark a specific place on the ILS approach to runway 18C, so that the pilot can cross-check the altitude and can start a stop watch to time the distance to the decision point for a missed approach.
Remarks Per October 27, 2005, this outer marker has been decommissioned. Amsterdam Schiphol now does not have marker beacons any more, it's all ILS/DME.
