The original Karlovy Vary Golf Club was a nine hole course established in 1904 on the outskirts of the city
And what a city!
Karlovy Vary is perhaps the spa town of Central Europe- certainly it is a personal favourite...
The current 18 hole course was designed and built by golf architect Carol Noskowski in 1933. It is located on hilly land just a little further from town than the original 9 holer...
Unfortunately depression and war initially stopped the course from opening... until a group of former members revived the project in 1949.
Golf Resort Karlovy Vary is cut from thick forest, and is a strong walk with significant elevation change throughout.
Some holes- particularly the par 5 ninth and eleventh holes- are claustrophobically tight, but overall the course is very playable.
At only 6198 metres off the back tees it will rarely challenge for length!
The club is believed to have the largest membership in the Czech Republic and is popular with members and visitors alike
Notable holes include:
- the par 3 fourth hole, a long downhill par 3 with water behind the green
- the par 4 fifth hole with it’s magic back tee position. The tee shot through a chute of trees needs to carry a water fountain!
- the par 5 seventh hole with gorgeous tee setting
- the downhill par 3 tenth hole
- the seventeenth hole, a very pretty par 3 in a picture book setting
Karlovy Vary is located only an hour or so from Prague and is a must see destination. It has a good golf course and a thoroughly enchanting/romantic spa town as your base.
