Golf is no longer the domain of a select few who live in exclusive apartments and family villas. Golf tourism is becoming increasingly popular in the Czech Republic. It combines a passion for sport with visits to historical monuments or trips through beautiful countryside. So whether you are a seasoned matador or a beginner, you are sure to enjoy travelling in conjunction with golf! So where to go?
Mariánské Lázně is a course with a literally royal history. The golf club was founded here in 1905 by the British King Edward VII, who became a regular visitor. It is a Central European rarity and the oldest golf course in the Czech Republic. Originally it had only 9 holes, but less than twenty years after its opening, it got another "nine". At the Royal Golf Club Mariánské Lázně you will find a course of classic Scottish and Irish type with smaller greens. It has already proved its reputation many times when it hosted professional tournaments of the European tour.
You can stay in many modern resorts, luxury accommodation for a few days, for example, a hotel specializing in golf stays, which is located directly in a beautiful forest park about 5 minutes from the course. You can enjoy well-deserved relaxation in the spa & wellness centre.
You should definitely not miss a visit to the historic centre of Mariánské Lázně, famous not only for its almost 100 mineral springs, but also for the beautiful architecture of its historic buildings. You can admire this while strolling through the main colonnade. The town's dominant feature is the singing fountain, which plays every odd hour, and in the evening, it even lights up with colour.
The championship eighteen-hole par 72 parkland golf course is located between Lysá hora and Smrk. There are large greens, 3 hectares of water and five large tees on each hole. You can look forward to playing in the fresh mountain air and the breath-taking panorama of the Beskydy Mountains. The Ostravice Golf Course provides all the necessary facilities in picturesque timbered buildings.
The location will be especially appreciated by nature lovers, as the surroundings offer countless hiking trails. You can also enjoy the views of the countryside on a bike or from a horse saddle. Be sure to take a look at the wooden churches, which are protected cultural monuments. On rainy summer days, sixty exhibits of cars and trucks in the Tatra Kopřivnice Technical Museum will keep you busy.
Do you live in a luxury new building in Prague and don't want to drive several hours to play golf? You don't have to! An 18-hole course of the highest European standard covers an area of more than 80 hectares in close proximity to the capital. It has a par 72 and a total length from the black tees of 6,858 metres. The Albatross Golf Resort in the village of Vysoký Újezd was opened relatively recently, in 2009, and has rapidly become one of the top-rated courses in the country.
The resort is situated on the border of the protected landscape area of the Bohemian Karst. If you visit here, make sure you take the time to visit the amazing limestone area with karst canyons and gorges. You will discover the unique formations on a roughly one-hour tour in the Koněprusy Caves. Iconic photographs can be taken at the viewpoint above the village of Svatý Jan pod Skalou or at the flooded quarry Velká Amerika. But the biggest attraction of the site is the second most visited castle in our territory – Karlštejn. Be sure to take the sightseeing tours, which will take you through the Chapel of St. Catherine, the Church of the Assumption in the Marian Tower and the Chapel of the Holy Cross in the Great Tower with its unique preserved frescoes from the late Middle Ages and Gothic panel paintings.
If you are near the majestic city of Prague and you are not from there, don't hesitate to come here too! There is certainly no need for a long introduction of its sights, but for the sake of order, here are the top ones - Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, the National Theatre, Old Town Square with the Astronomical Clock, the National Museum and Strahov Monastery. For shopping, head to the famous Paris Street. Afterwards, we cordially invite you for coffee or tea at our luxury office Luxent - Exclusive Properties at Pařížská 28, Prague 1, where we will be happy to introduce you to our portfolio of luxury properties and talk about the current situation on the real estate market.
