Golf in Europe

Golf as a sport first took off along the sandy shorelines of Great Britain, particularly along the east coast of Scotland. Since then - due to a rising middle class and better transporation means - golf has spread throughout Europe.

Golfclub St. Vigil Seis
Anlage: 18 Loch √úbungsanlagen: sehr guter Zustand, zwei Stockige Driving Range Clubhouse: Golfhotel, sehr gut K√ľche: perfekt Mastercourse: Der Platz ist in einem schwierigen Umfeld als Alpiner Golfplatz sehr gelungen. Oft kann man gerade stehen, die Bahnen sind aber sehr eng und hinter den Gr√ľns ist schnell das aus (Abhang, Schlucht). Der Platz erfordert ein sehr genaues‚Ķ

Golf Gleidingen
Der Golfplatz Gleidingen ist ein wahres Golferparadies! Neben den weitreichenden √úbungsfl√§chen (√ľberdachte DR, gro√üz√ľgige Pitching & Putting Area, diverse √úbungsbunker und ein vollwertiger √∂ffentlicher 6 Loch Platz [Par 3 & 4 L√∂cher], stehen 3 x 9 Lochpl√§tze zur Verf√ľgung (gr√ľn [Kurs1], blau [2] und rot [3]). Der Platz ist sehr gelungen einem Links course nachempfunden.‚Ķ

LykiaLinks Antalya
What a nice course to be, a true links experience! Playing 18 holes directly at the beach and dunes Lykia offers a great view on the Mediterranean Sea as well as on the Taurus mountains. Worth to walk and explore the course on foot. Well placed 54 Dyson style bunkers are hard to be identified early. Fastes greens ever played.. worth every money to play there. Clubhouse …
