Included courses in our Championship Course Golf Package

Albatross GC Prague

The host of the Czech Masters, a European Tour Event.

Designed by Keith Preston and opened in 2009, the golf course occupies an area of more than 80 hectares (197,684 acres) and is situated on a hillside bordering the Cesky Kras Nature Reserve. Seven lakes cover more than 20,000 square meters on the course, 65 sand traps, and more than 1,200 newly planted mature trees adorn the landscape.

As the leading golf course in the Czech Republic, as voted for by Golf Digest, this wonderful resort will start your golfing tour off in perfect style.

Beckenbauer GC Vilshofen

The host of the Porsche European Open 2015 and 2016, Paul Lawrie Saltire Match Play Championship 2017.

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, pack a punch. They don’t hold back regarding challenges but also offer sufficient opportunities for 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 season.

Diamond GC Linz

The host of the Austrian Open, a European Tour Event since 2010.

This Championship course, host of the Lyoness Open, is on the outskirts of Vienna. Thanks to the need for good course management and the important element of water, it challenges every player’s ability. The legendary Miguel Angel Jimenez designed the 8th hole and emulated the iconic Spaniard.

Experience the European Tour standard which allows for precise shots in challenging settings, far from those packed fairways. The trim-cut grass and perfectly kept greens allow for the best golf games, surrounded by beautiful and fair water hazards.

Penati Resorts GC Bratislava

The host of the Slovak Challenge, a European Tour Challenge Tour event.

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 that 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 787 Yard par 6 15th hole awaits golf enthusiasts, offering 11 tees. The view alone is fascinating.

Pannonia GC Budapest

The host of the Hungarian Amateur Championships.

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 eight holes, and pin placements may challenge the hilly greens. With 6 different tee boxes, beginners and advanced players can get a true and fair idea of their golf skills.

The natural environment and carefully maintained course inspire golf players to shoot great. Erhardt also designed Fontana’s golf course, hosting the Austrian Open for many years, and believes that Pannonia is still the best course in Hungary.

Adamstal GC, Vienna Fontana GC, or Castle Schonborn is subject to availability when booking.

Vienna optional choice add-on: US$552 per golfer, minimum 2 golfers. A 6th round could be incorporated in Vienna at Adamstal GC, which is ranked 85th in Europe and is truly a magnificent course that shows the true beauty of the alpine nature around Vienna. Ask your GolfAhoy agent to reserve at the time of booking.  

Golf courses are subject to change without notice.

Linz GOLF at Golf Club Mondsee 

This beautifully designed golf course owes its origins to the dreadful Chornobyl nuclear disaster in May 1986. The exceptional 18-hole championship course along the Dragon Lake offers mountain peak views of the Salzkammergut. In the years before the Chornobyl nuclear disaster, Peter Graf raised a prime bull breed on the acreage that is now the Golf Club Mondsee. Meat prices fell drastically after Chornobyl in Europe, so the Graf family sold off their herd and started looking for a different use for the land. The decision for a family of golfers was easy: build an 18-hole championship golf course. A valid handicap certificate or card is required. The handicap limit is 54. The play is limited to 4½ hours.

Linz GOLF at St. Florian Golf Course Linz

Vienna GOLF at Fontana Golf Club  

The demanding yet fair course, with its many bunkers and water hazards, is one of Austria’s top golf courses. The 18-hole Championship Course was a venue of the European Tour in Austria from 2006 to 2009 and a 2015 venue candidate for the Ryder Cup 2022.

Bratislava GOLF at Bernolakovo Black River Golf Course

The course is about 5km from the capital of Slovakia – Bratislava. Thanks to its rating, this masterfully designed 18-hole Black River golf course is one of the most demanding courses in Europe. The first six holes are a part of the original course, Park. They are situated in a park of a baroque mansion, and the other holes are behind river Čierná voda. The most difficult hole is number 12, which has a double dogleg. Large bunkers are in the first break, making placing the ball in a good position for the next hit difficult. In the second one, a water hazard leads to the green. It is difficult to choose the most interesting holes because each of them, at this course, has all of the attributes that a challenging golf course can offer to golfers. A valid handicap certificate or card is required. The handicap limit is 54.

Budapest. Your morning excursion includes sightseeing in Buda and Pest, spread over both river banks. You will see the famed Heroes’ Square and Castle Hill, home to Fisherman’s Bastion, Matthias Church, and spectacular views of the Danube. Alternatively, you may also join a hike up to Castle Hill, where you will see Buda Castle, Fisherman’s Bastion, and Parliament Square. After dinner, the ship will sail a special Illuminations Cruise past the glittering riverfront of Budapest.

At leisure in Budapest

Budapest GOLF at Sofitel Hotel Budapest Pannonia Golf & Country Club

The club is in Máriavölgy, approximately 30 – 40 minutes from the Budapest city center. The Habsburg family occupied the land as a weekend retreat around 1845. The approach to the clubhouse leads through a gorgeous row of 200-year-old Sycamore trees. The 18-hole championship course was designed by renowned architect Hans-Georg Erhardt and was opened in 1997. Pannonia Golf & Country Club is proud to have hosted the 2011 and 2012 Hungarian Open Amateur Championship. A valid handicap certificate or card is required. The handicap limit is 36.
