The Golfclub Gastein is not only the first golf course with thermal water well, but also one of the oldest golf clubs in Austria. 1960 created by the architect Bernhard of Limburg, fascinates the place at the gate of the National Parks "Hohe Tauern" alone by its unique landscape location. Nestled in the Gastein Valley, the course is designed in harmony with nature and offers real challenges. The natural conditions of the Alpine region are used optimally, hilly paths alternate with levels. Also the clean, clear air of the Gastein, which never becomes oppressive even on warm summer days, creates ideal conditions for golfing.
In addition to the harmony of flora and fauna, the golf course has since 2009 another high-light to offer.
With more than 40 ° C, the Gastein thermal water gushes out of the well at tee number 6. The Gastein Golf Club is thus the first golf club in Austria, which does not make life difficult for its players with water hazards, but with a thermal water fountain and 5 drinking water wells for refreshment and revival during the round. No wonder that the putts in Gastein fall by their own!
For those who would like to enjoy the healing and revitalizing effects of the Gastein thermal waters, there is a combined ticket at GC Gastein "Golf and Spa", which includes a day green fee and admission to the Alpentherme Bad Hofgastein or the Felsentherme Bad Gastein.
In the year 2004 the golf course Gastein was extended on 18 courses and is therefore again and again the venue of various national championships. The course is playable from April to the end of October. Since 40 the season of the traditional club is officially opened in April with the "Ski-Golf Competition", a combination of Ski & Golf.
With its almost 5600 meters not the longest golf course, it is extremely spectacular and picturesque beautiful. The 18 fairways demand full concentration, whereby you get rid of the imposing mountain scenery again and again. Enjoyment Golf is announced on the fair course in the valley floor in the Gastein Valley. The holes 1 to 9 (these are the holes built in the year 2004) offer generous tracks and large, sometimes more undulating greens. Especially the par 5 (hole 3, 7 and 8) are a real challenge. The tracks 10 to 18 are rather short, but they have smaller greens and narrower fairways, which requires a precise game.
We start the round with a not too heavy 150 Meter Par3. Hole two is a short Par4 that seduces you to attack. Place the ball in front of the crossing river and play a safe pitch on the green. Play your drive on the first Par5 of the three on the right side of the fairway. From the 100 meter mark it goes in the right Winkler left down on the green. On Loch4 again a Par3, if you play your ball on the right side, then he rolls on the green. Even on Loch5 an iron from the tea enough to play with a sure hit the equipped with two plateaus green. It follows Loch6 a Par3 with almost 190 meters, Pay attention to the right club choice! Loch7 a Par5, with a good drive on the left side of the fairway, you have the opportunity to attack the green, two bunkers defend the green frontal. On Loch8 a Par5 a tee shot in front of the biotope is sufficient, long hittters can reach the green with two strokes, but a defensive style of play can also lead to birdie with a good approach shot. In front of the halfway, a 155 Meter Par3 finishes the first nine holes.
The second nine (say the old holes) start with a short Par4, with increased difficult green. On hole 11 it is important to play the tee in the crease to have a good hit over the water obstacle in front of the green. Attention too long means Out of Bounds !! The 12 a par 3 uphill, attention in the club choice, and too far to the right is the ball in the woods. On the 13 a straight tee is a good prerequisite to play the green. Too short is bad as a small stream crosses the fairway. Do not be overly intimidated by the tee of the 14, play your ball on the fairway and pay attention to the choice of clubs when playing the green. Hole 15 can play long-hitters over the trees on the right and you are lying 50 meters in front of the green. Next you go with a Par5, from tee right side of the fairway, then the second on the green should not be a problem. Hole 17 a Par3 is accompanied on the entire left side of Out. The final hole ie 18 again a Par5, with a good drive you create the basis for a good score. However, beware of alluding the green, do not be too long.
