Alpine golfing at its finest

The perfect course set against breathtaking mountain scenery: a dream come true for many golfers. In Saalfelden Leogang, a golf holiday can be superbly combined with varied hiking tours, plenty of cultural enjoyment and relaxing wellness days. In the Saalfelden Leogang region, there are two impressive golf clubs featuring 18-hole golf courses. At the Brandlhof Golf Club, for instance, you can play over the Saalach river several times and let golf pro John Seymour help you perfect your swing. With its 5,000 square metre driving range and two golf academies, the Urslautal Golf Club is an impressive venue. During an exciting round of golf, enjoy magnificent views of the Leoganger Steinberge mountain range and the Steinernes Meer plateau. After a satisfying round, return to your golf hotel in the evening and be pampered in the luxurious wellness areas.


Gut Brandlhof Golf Club - A golfing gem between the Saalach river and the Steinernes Meer plateau
Unique golfing pleasure can be enjoyed at the 18-hole Gut Brandlhof Golf Club. This challenging course crosses over the Saalach, a wild mountain river. Depending on your tee shot, golfers must cross the Saalach up to six times. During your round, enjoy breathtaking views of the mountain giants of the Steinernes Meer plateau and the Leoganger Steinberge mountain range. This is Alpine golf at its very finest. For all dog owners, the golf club offers another major bonus: four-legged friends may be taken along on the course as long as they remain on the leash. The large, partially covered driving range also features a 6-hole short course for beginners. At the golf course you might also meet local Head Pro John Seymour, who is one of the top 50 golf professionals in Europe and gives private lessons for beginners and professionals. 
In case of bad weather, passionate golfers can take advantage of the Indoor Golf Performance Centre at Gut Brandlhof hotel. This state-of-the-art indoor golf simulation facility is open 365 days a year. After an exhilarating golf match, reward yourself with local specialities at the "Einkehr" club restaurant or round off the day in the first-class wellness area of the 4-star superior Gut Brandlhof hotel. 


Urslautal Golf Club - featuring a spacious driving range with breathtaking mountain scenery
The Urslautal golf course is located on a high plateau between Saalfelden and Maria Alm. The holes are rich in variety: some are longer than others and some are hilly, though never too steep. With a total surface area of 5,000 square metres and boasting 60 tees, this golf club also features one of Austria’s best driving ranges. The 360-degree mountain panorama, which includes the massif of the Steinernes Meer plateau, is also quite impressive. For beginners and advanced players, there are also three practice holes and two golf academies. The Urslautal Golf Academy and the Systema Golf Academy offer golf taster courses, private and group lessons (to achieve Platzreife certification), as well as lessons for the whole family. During an exciting round of golf, you’ll need to negotiate more than just 18 holes. Roughs, water hazards, biotopes and bunkers present a real challenge! An unobstructed view makes putting easier. Probably the best view of the Steinernes Meer plateau can be enjoyed from the terrace of the "Remise" golf restaurant, which awaits golfers at the end of the round. 


First-class golf hotels: plenty of gourmet food and ample relaxation after a great round
After a challenging round of golf, golfers round off the day with sporting colleagues and friends - either in the club restaurants of the golf courses or in the well-equipped SPA and sauna areas of the golf hotels. There are four golf hotels in the Saalfelden Leogang region. These include the Gut Brandlhof hotel, the Krallerhof hotel, the Ritzenhof lakeside hotel and spa and the Lebe Frei Hotel Der Löwe. The versatile wellness programme allows one and all the opportunity to truly relax. On top of this great offer, enjoy the specialties of regional cuisine. 
Should you be keen to get to know our golf-friendly region a little better, take the opportunity and visit other golf courses in the area. There are 17 additional courses in the region within a radius of around 70 kilometres.
