Thomson Lakes & Mountains have been getting their customers to Austrian Tirol for many years and what better time for sports enthusiasts to visit one of Europe’s most attractive destinations. The Austrian tourist board has announced expansion on two of their golf courses giving a great selection of golf holes around the Zugspitze glacier.

The Tirol is known for its extensive selection of golf courses which includes the Golfclub Seefeld-Wildmoos and described as one of their best. The 18-hole course designed 40 years ago by architect Donald Harradine is located at 1300 metres above sea level. Despite the surrounding hills, the course provides a challenging game whilst still being friendly to high handicappers. Visitors can expect to find the Tiroler Zugspitz Golf Lermoos-Ehrwald and Golfclub Mieminger Plateau, which was upgraded to a championship course in 2008, have both been extended. Whilst here spend a game playing the Golf and Country Club Achensee, dating back to 1934, is the oldest golf club in the Tirol.

Those who want scenery and a good game should consider the 18-hole cross border Golfclub Reith im Winkel–Kossen which is located 750m above sea level on a sunny plateau. From here visitors can see views of the Chiemgauer and Tirolean Mountains. Ranked among Europe’s Top 20 Golf Clubs by the Peugeot Golf Guide is Golfclub Eichenheim located in Kitzbühel.

During the summer, visitors can experience the annual Golf Festival in Kitzbühel whereby golfers play down the famous Hahnenkamm ski run, ending on the 9-hole Rasmushof course. Golfer will both hear and see this turn of phrase “4 courses in town and 19 nearby” which is just another way of saying, “Welcome to Kitzbühel! Welcome to the world of golf!” Kitzbühel is the undisputed golfing El Dorado of the Alps providing golfers with a wide selection of golf clubs suitable for golfing abilities. Golfers can experience teeing-off between Kitzbüheler Horn Mountain, the Schwarzsee Lake and Streif. Between four golf courses there are a total of 63 holes, 25 golf hotels and plenty of events, parties, tournaments and golfing packages gaining Kitzbühel the positive reputation with golfers that it has today.
