The top 5 golf courses in the area

Of course, there are also plenty of highlights for golfers beyond our own golf course. In addition to our favorites in the neighborhood, we also recommend the GC Mondsee, where a fairytale setting and bathing jetty await you at the 19th hole. A great reason to pay a visit to the Salzburg Lake District.

The Gastein Golf Club is one of the oldest golf clubs in Austria. The original 9-hole golf course was founded in 1960 and expanded to 18 holes 42 years later. It is perfectly integrated into the beautiful Gastein valley and is definitely worth a detour to the Belle Epoque town of Bad Gastein. But be careful: the course is a bit of a mountain goat. The course also includes a very well-equipped driving range with covered tees and a rustic golf bar at hole 19. Guests are always welcome and dogs are allowed on a lead.

Golf fun for children

You might think that golf is too boring for little rascals. We’ll be happy to prove you wrong. Children can have a lot of fun and make a quantum leap forward in their body control. They also learn to concentrate and stay calm under pressure. Boomer virtues such as patience and discipline come on top, which are not so bad for life. So: take them for a walk around the course. It doesn’t cost anything. And if they bite: Coach Rodney is ready with child-friendly training.
