The golf courses of Karlovy Vary & Marienbad - Czech Republic

Karlovy Vary  Architect: C. Noskowski.  18 holes: 6,167m: par 72.

One of the oldest golf courses in the Czech Republic, dating from 1933; Karlovy Vary has a series of broad holes that swoop between dense forest that covers the hills for miles around.  A few hills to negotiate along the way, buggies maybe required.  Lovely natural golfing in the peace and quiet of the Czech forests.

Royal Marianske Lazne   Architect: R. Doig.  18 holes: 6,062m: par 72.

The oldest Golf Club in the Czech Republic, inaugurated in 1905 and as you might expect a fine traditional Club, with a well preserved Clubhouse.  The course plays through predominantly wooded terrain with a couple of more open sections and a small river to cross in a couple of places.  The whole estate is maintained to exemplary standards of greenkeeping.  There are a few inclines, however the course is mainly level terrain, so easily walked.

Cihelny   Architect: G. Player.  18 holes: 5,674m: par 70.

Mr. Player has created a game of two very distinct halves at Cihelny!  After a gentle start with five wide holes and wider bunkers on the higher ground around the Clubhouse, the course drops down (crossing a single-track railway) to run alongside and back and forth across the river: these are much tighter holes with danger lurking on all sides - don't be distracted by the scenery!

Kynzvart   Architect:  C. Stadler.  18 holes: 6,352m: par 72.

From the modern Clubhouse and Academy, the course winds up through the forest around the solid château before emerging onto a higher plain where the holes and views are more open (apart from the thick rough); a good and varied test of golf.

Sokolov   Architect:  C. Stadler.  18 holes 6,288m par 72.

Quite a young course but with great potential as the landscape of gentle hills and valleys is perfect for golf.  Mr. Stadler (no, not Craig) has made very good use of these contours to create an entertaining combination of wooded and open holes that will only improve further as time goes by.

Franzensbad   Architect: C. Stadler.  18 holes: 6,561m par 73.

A small, rustic Club with an enthusiastic Membership and an interesting course, fairly tightly knit in a few places, stretching over a broad wooded hillside.  Good natural golfing, even if it’s not as polished as the bigger Clubs nearby.
