Golf Resort Karlstejn opened in 1993 and was designed by Canadian architects Les Furber and Jim Eremko.
The course occupies a hilly Bohemian site in the grounds of Karlstejn Castle, near Prague in the Czech Republic
There are 27 holes at Karlstejn.
The original championship course (holes 1-18) is known as the Red Course.
A further nine was added in 2008 (holes 19-27) and can be added to either nine of the original nine to make up The Blue Course or The Black Course.
Members are spoilt for choice, with 3 course options available!
Karlstejn had the honour of hosting the European PGA Tour Event in 1997, and will host the Ladies Open in 2019
The hilly site challenges players with undulating lies, water hazards, strategically placed bunkers and greens with a lot of movement
The course demands precision iron play to a number of raised greens/up hill shots- and there are some difficult pin positions..
It is fun to play but can be quite challenging
It is also a course with long and undulating walks between greens and tees- an ideal course to consider the use of golf carts
Notable Holes include:
- the short quirky dogleg par 4 second hole with a significant drop down from the tee to fairway and a green tucked in adjacent to two water hazards.
- the delightful short par 4 eleventh hole
- the long par 3 fourteenth hole with water in play down the right (see pic top of page)
- the long uphill par 5 seventeenth hole which requires long accurate stroke play to stay in play
If you find yourself in Prague with your golf clubs in tow, why not visit Karlstejn Castle and play Karlstejn Golf Resort?
