Golfpark Böhmerwald

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1992

Golfpark Böhmerwald, open to visitors on weekdays and weekends, occupies a natural and quiet setting amongst the open countryside and forests of the Mühlviertel "quarter" of Upper Austria. Located just 5 km from the border with Germany, the undulating slopes of Böhmerwald are home to a pleasant and predominantly open parkland layout.

Plenty of gently dog-legging holes, and half a dozen with noticeable elevation change, lead you to relatively small, well bunker-defended greens. Water also comes into play on a few occasions, but not too frequently. Distances between greens and the next tees are generally short, which ensures an enjoyable walking experience, albeit with a few slopes to climb.

Along the way you'll enjoy wonderful views across open farmland and onto tree-covered hills, with many attractive villages and open skies completing the scene. There are no houses, roads or pylons on or around the course. And none intruding into the surrounding views, which allows you to focus on your golf game and the sweeping vistas that the Mühlviertel offers.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLE: the rifle-straight "signature" par-4 13th plays downhill, a small pond and stream crossing in front of the green. The surrounding wooded hills provide an attractive backdrop to this testing hole.

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.
