Discover Prague – The Gateway to Great Golf The Czech Republic lies in the heart of Europe. Prague, the capital, known as the Golden city or the City of a hundred spires, has been a popular city break destination for some time and is now emerging as a remarkable destination for Golf. Top quality golf has a long tradition in Czech Republic. The first golf courses were open in the west of the country in the spa towns of Karlovy Vary in 1904 and in 1905 in Marianske Lazne. Since this time the Czech Republic has hosted many golfing events and in recent years the European Tour has returned. With a low number of Czech Golfers, it makes it a heaven for golf tourist.

Beyond West Bohemia, there is an increasing selection of championship courses around Prague; most of them within a 30 – 45 minute drive from the city centre. There are many other excellent courses in the North and South Moravia areas including Celadna the current Czech Republic host to the European Tour. All this, plus the beautiful countryside and many historical highlights will bring breadth and depth to any golfing break. Although the Czech Republic has more than 80 golf clubs, our golf professionals have reviewed and evaluated all the courses to ensure we are offering superior level golf. In this brochure we have chosen the most attractive and popular golfing regions to be discovered in the country.

Feel free to browse through the select regions, golf courses and hotels presented within these pages.

Korenec Golf Resort About 60 minutes from Brno centre | www.sokrates-golf.cz

Being 700 metres above sea level is not the only ‘high point’ of this course. The parkland type course established since 1998 rewards golfers that give respect to its layout. Not overly-challenging but potentially punishing with out-of-bounds, well placed bunkers and water hazards for wayward shots. You are likely to enjoy this course, the fresh mountain air as well as the wacky and inventive design of the clubhouse with a statue of a giant jubilant golfer, which further underlines the warm and friendly atmosphere. The Clubhouse was awarded in 2003 as the best construction in South Moravia. Practice facility includes driving range, chipping and putting green, lessons with Pro, restaurant, bar, golf shop, trolley rental, golf cart rental, golf equipment rental, accommodation in 3* Pythagor Golf Hotel and meeting facilities.

North Moravia Why: Ostrava, as the gateway to Poland and Slovakia, is undergoing dynamic changes and improvements in recent times; converting abandoned factories to museums and cultural centres. Historically, as an industrial city it has many industrial landmarks. Beyond these, there are very interesting open-air museums with old-fashioned wooden buildings from the early 18th century with demonstrations of traditional dances, clothes and local handcrafts. Don’t miss the clubs and pubs of the “clubbing street” Stodolni in Ostrava with its unique festive ‘Mardi Gras’ atmosphere. Where: North Moravia spreads over the northeastern corner of the Czech Republic; the main city of the region is Ostrava. There are five attractive 18-hole courses in the area. This region is the current host for the PGA European Tour at GC Celadna. This course was designed by M.A. Jiménez and set in the beautiful Beskydy Mountains area sometimes compared with British Columbia.

How to get there: Direct flights are available only from Prague, so we recommend using either Brno airport or Katowice and Krakow Airports in Poland and we would provide airport transfers or car hire upon arrival. The journey from these airports to the Ostrava region by minibus takes about 2 hours. Fast trains also operate from Prague to Ostrava and get you there comfortably in 3 hours. When: High golfing season is from April to October, however we recommend travelling from mid April to mid October. Our tip: Hiking in Beskydy Mountains. For a  unique experience, Celadna also offers a sub-zero spa treatment.
