Fontana Golf Club


4+ (4 gold): one of our top-rated 4-star courses, worthy of 4½ stars.
   Fontana Golf Club Est. 1997

Where2Golf says: 

Fontana Golf Club is home to one of the best championship golf courses in Austria. This tree-lined and open parkland layout provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with Doug Carrick's excellent design containing many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes.

This demanding, yet fair course, with its many stylish bunkers and not insignificant water hazards, is one of Austria’s best. A good-size man-made lake, complete with sandy beach alongside the clubhouse, makes for a testing finish. The par-3 17th and left-to-right doglegging par-5 18th both require tee shots across the lake. A must play if you are in the area.

Fontana's impressive clubhouse accommodates a restaurant, a pro shop, as well as a private fitness and spa area, which is complemented in the summer by the club’s own bathing lake with sandy beach.

Stay & Play at Fontana: onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
