Bad Griesbach, Germany
Host of the Porsche European Open
Regal golfing pleasure on lush greens and perfect fairways – this championship course, created by former Masters champion Bernhard Langer, seems to be one with the meadow landscape surrounding the small river Rott and was awarded a “world class” rating within one year of opening. The 18 holes in Penning, right beside the Audi Golf Course, do indeed pack a punch. They don’t hold back when it comes to challenges, but also oﬀer sufficient opportunities for some serious success.
What makes this golf course so special is the quality of the hand-mown greens and fairways, which remain tip-top even during the summer thanks to a double-row irrigation system.
Host of the EuramBank Open
Without a doubt one of the most beautiful golf courses in the world, and not only according to Golf Digest! Franz Wittman, Austria's greatest Rally Champion turned his attention to golf and with the collaboration of Jeff Howes created this masterpiece in the Austrian Alps.
Set in the Austrian Alps, each hole is unique, challenging and fun. The course winds up the mountain with the 10th being the highest point of the course. The 11th signals the start of the descent until you get to the 19th (no, not a typo) the only course in Europe designed with a real 19th hole.
A unique experience also awaits at the halfway house, where drinks and a snack are provided with only a small voluntary donation into the basket for the Junior golf team.
Host of the Slovakian Open
This 18-hole golf course has been built according to plans authored by Nicklaus Design, one of the world’s leading design firms. The Nicklaus Design LEGEND COURSE complies with USGA standards at the world PGA level. 60% of the world’s golf courses which host PGA tournaments have been designed by Nicklaus Design. Along with many other scenic features, this course counts the longest hole in Europe among its challenges.
The 716-metre 787 Yard Par 6 15th hole is ready to be challenged. Oﬀering 11 tees, the view alone is fascinating.
Host of the Hungarian Open
The 18-hole golf course of Pannonia Golf & Country Club was designed by the famous Austrian course designer Hans G. Erhardt. The golf course lies in a valley so the varied forms of its fairways provide a great golf experience. Lakes come into play at 8 holes and pin placements may also present a challenge at the hilly greens. With 6 diﬀerent tee-boxes, both beginners and advanced players can get a true and fair idea of their golf skills. The natural environment and the beautiful, carefully maintained course inspires golf players to hit great shots.
Erhardt also designed the Golf course Fontana, host of the Austrian Open for many years and believes that Pannonia is still the best course in Hungary.
Occasionally one of our Golf courses will be hosting a European Tour event, will be closed for maintenance, or could be booked out for a corporate day. Should that be the case we have selected some other courses to be played as an alternative. The courses all meet the same stringent selection criteria as our main courses, and are also beautiful courses to play.
