Golf Resort Karlstejn

The first 18 holes of the Golf Resort Karlštejn were opened in 1993. The project comes from workshop of two canadian golf architects, Les Furber and Jim Eremko. The names of these architects are signed under 70 golf courses around the world. Two of the most famous are definitely “Valderama” in Spain or “Varadero” in Cuba. Thanks to sensitive approach of integrating the golf course into picturesque countryside, where the romantic scenery comprises of the most famous Czech castle Karlstejn, the residence of the Czech kings, unique place was created. Hilly landscape with limestone rocks, rich fauna and flora is oasis of calmness and peace which will gratify event the most demanding players.

In 1997 the course had the honour of hosting European PGA Tour event. Number of golf celebrities from all over the world took part in it. The winner, Bernhard Langer, won with the score 265 (-20) after four rounds. Record-holder is Swedish player Patrik Sjöland with 61 strokes in the second round of Chemapol Trophy, which has taken place on 8.8.1997.

In 2008 the current 18 hole course was enlarged on the South slope of the hill Voskov by new 9 holes. Designed by the Furber/Eremko team again, it interconnects together perfectly. The project derives benefit from natural stripes of matured greenery. With narrow fairways, three ponds and numerous sand bunkers, it is a quite difficult and technical course where the planning of the shots and the strategy of the game will be very important to achieve success.
