The 18 holes of the Seefeld-Wildmoos Golf Club, which is one of the “Leading Golf Courses Austria”, is planned in such a way that it fits ideally into the hilly alpine landscape with meadows, larch and birch forests. Surrounded by majestic firs and spruces, it is rightly ranked by experts among the top 100 golf courses in the world.
The Seefeld-Wildmoos golf course was built in 1969/70 as the second 18-hole course in Austria and gained cult status among alpine golf courses due to its exceptionally scenic location and a sporty and memorable layout. “A golf course you must have played” is the opinion of golfing globetrotters, top golfers and golf connoisseurs. This golf course has character. Every fairway is different, unmistakable, memorable! The sporty, demanding 18 holes are so cleverly laid out in the hilly terrain that overcoming the differences in altitude does not pose any major problems.
E-trolleys and single-seater e-carts are available for players who want to take it a little easier. Golfers with a higher handicap underplay their handicap relatively often. Players with a handicap of up to -9 are sportingly challenged from the back tees. The 9-hole golf academy offers a perfect practice area in all degrees of difficulty, trained golf pros accompany you here in your first steps on well-kept greens.
