Konopiste's “Radecky” course takes its name from one of the original owners of the estate, the famous Czech Field Marshal Josef Radetzky von Radetz (1766-1858). He was immortalised by Johann Strauss's famous composition the Radetzky March.
The 18-hole d’Este course is named after Archduke Franz Ferdinand d’Este, heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo in 1914 is often regarded as the flashpoint that quickly lead to the outbreak of the 1914-18 Great War. Nearby Konopiste Castle was one of Archduke Franz Ferdinand's hunting estates.
