Tee off in Saalfelden Leogang

A golf experience that hits new heights
Many golfers dream of teeing off in front of a picturesque mountain backdrop. In Saalfelden Leogang, you can ideally combine your golfing holiday with hiking tours, cultural highlights and relaxed spa days. The region boasts two 18-hole golf courses: the Gut Brandlhof Golf Club course involves several crossings of the River Saalach, while the Urslautal Golf Club stands out thanks to its large driving range and two golf academies.
 
Gut Brandlhof Golf Club – where the mountain river crosses the fairways
The first thing that catches the eye about the course at the Gut Brandlhof hotel is the wonderful old trees. Snaking through the middle of this 18-hole course is the Saalach, a wild mountain river that you might have to cross as many as six times depending on your tee shot. And coupled with the stunning views of the craggy mountain giants, this adds up to a next-level Alpine golfing experience. There’s also good news for all dog owners, as golfers are allowed to bring their four-legged friends along provided they are on a leash. In addition, the 18-hole course is accompanied by a 6-hole short course for beginners. Here, local head pro John Seymour – one of the top 50 professional golfers in Europe – works together with learners and provides individual courses at the covered tees on the driving range.
If poor weather conditions should make it impossible to head out onto the course for a round, golf enthusiasts can head inside the Gut Brandlhof hotel. This is home to the Indoor Golf Performance Center, a cutting-edge indoor golf simulation system that is open 365 days a year. After enjoying a great day’s golf, you can make for the first-class wellness area in the 4-star superior Gut Brandlhof hotel to relax and recuperate.

Urslautal Golf Club – a golf course with a breathtaking all-round panorama
The Urslautal Golf Club wows guests with its stunning 360-degree mountain panorama including sights such as the Steinernes Meer massif, its location on a high plateau near Saalfelden and its 5,000 square metre driving range that is one of the best in Austria. With three additional practice holes and two golf academies, this is ideal place for beginners to learn and for advanced golfers to train: the Urslautal Golf Academy and the Systema Golf Academy offer private and group instruction up to the level of a golfing permit, as well as golf taster courses and instruction for all the family. The 18-hole course features roughs, water obstacles, environmentally sensitive areas and bunkers. As there are few trees on the greens, you have a clear view – not only for putting, but also for taking in the wonderful scenery. Having completed your round, you can head for the terrace of the Remise Golf Restaurant that also overlooks the Steinernes Meer plateau.

Après-golf – relaxing at the club restaurants and golf hotels
Anyone looking to finish their day by paying a traditional visit to the 19th hole – the club restaurant – will be delighted with the quality regional cooking on offer at both golf clubs. The best way to relax is at one of the partner hotels, for example with the “golf in & out” service at the Gut Brandlhof hotel. The excellent Krallerhof, Ritzenhof and Puradies hotels are also specially tailored to golfers and are only a few short kilometres away from the tees. If you need more than the two golf courses in Saalfelden Leogang, then the region nevertheless provides a terrific base as there are a further 17 outstanding courses within a radius of around 70 kilometres.
