CARINTHIA: 12 GOLF CLUBS AND THE ALPE-ADRIA-GOLF CARD
Austria’s southernmost province is known for its lakes, its skiing, cycling and biking resorts. But it also has a whopping 12 golf courses, with its natural surroundings making them even more appealing. In the summer, you are never far from the next bathing lake to cool off before or after a game, in spring, you can sometimes even ski and golf on one day.
Another bonus: The cross-border Alpe-Adria-Golf Card gives access to 20 of the most beautiful courses in Carinthia, Italy and Slovenia, allowing golfers to explore three different countries in one holiday, all while mastering their skills. It's even possible to play a round in all three countries in just one day!
TIROL: MORE THAN 20 GOLF COURSES AND ONE GOLDEN TICKET
Tirol has more than 20 golf clubs, 19 of which are Golf Tirol partner clubs, meaning you can use all of them with one golden ticket, the Golf Tirol Card. The courses are located in some of the country’s most beautiful regions and offer challenging and varied parcours with impeccable fairways and spectacular mountain views.
Thanks to a great selection of clubs both in the valley and more physically demanding ones in the mountains, golfers of every skill level are ensured a memorable and exciting game in Tirol, from the Zugspitze Mountain to the Lienzer Dolomiten, from the Kitzbüheler Alpen to Seefeld.
