Golfclub Murhof

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1962

Golfclub Murhof (also known as Steiermärkischer Murhof Golf Club) is home to one of Austria's oldest and best rated championship courses. Located a 30-minute drive from Graz, in the southern Austrian state of Styria (in German Steiermark), this predominantly tree-lined layout sits in a valley alongside the River Mur.

Originally designed by the pioneering German architect Bernhard von Limburger, the Murhof layout embraces many attractive features, with several excellent holes in the mix. Plenty of golfing challenge and usually good upkeep contribute to the appeal of this well-crafted and pleasantly testing design. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
