2017 will be an athletically exciting year for all golfers, because the first Falkensteiner Golf Cup is on the agenda. The tournament series will go from Italy and South Tyrol to Austria and the Czech Republic. The winners of the individual tournaments shall be awarded an invitation to the crowning final at the Falkensteiner Balance Resort Stegersbach!
Golf Inside with Christine Wolf
When, aside from wellness and an exquisite cuisine, a hotel group offers the opportunity to play golf at 14 of its locations, it makes sense to invite the Golf community to enjoy this golfing offer and to make use of it as widely as possible. That is why we also invited Christine Wolf, Austrian female golf pro and Olympian athlete 2016 to share her very personal tips with regard to Golfing at Falkensteiner with our community.
The first two tournaments to kick off the series will take place at our Premium Collection hotel locations in Jesolo and Stegersbach in late March and early April.
Hotel & Spa Jesolo, Golf Club GC Villa Condulmer, 25 March 2017
"Golfing 365 days" a year: that makes ever golfer's heart soar! The mild climate, the lush greens, and the balmy breezes on the nearby golf courses – this is where the Italian way of life reigns supreme. Here, dolce far niente takes top priority for me! The hotel and its unique character perfectly combine Miami's glamour with Jesolo's flair. A welcome home feeling of the highest order!“
Balance Resort Stegersbach, Reiters Golfschaukel, South Burgenland course, 1 April 2017
"To me, personally, the biggest draw is that you're right on site and the golf course is literally at your doorstep. After popping down to the fitness studio, I head for the driving range to practice my chipping and putting. At noon, I can take an hour's rest in the hotel without losing any time and get back to the golf course to play another few holes in the afternoon. It just feels great here, because everything is geared to ensuring that golfers have what they need to feel their very best".
Apartments Lake Garda, Golf Club GD Gardagolf, 20 May 2017
"Falkensteiner Apartments Lake Garda is quietly located close to the shores of beautiful Lake Garda. Once I finish practicing at Arzaga Golf Club or at the close-by Garda Golf Country Club - which, incidentally, offers a magnificent view - I get to relax by the pool in the beautifully groomed garden facility or go for a swim in the lake. And the unique landscape or towns nearby make sure you have plenty of variety.“
Aktiv-Resort Nassfeld, Golfclub Nassfeld Golf, 27 May 2017
Hotel & Spa Carinzia and Hotel Sonnenalpe
"I enjoy the Mediterranean climate and tranquility at Nassfeld Golf. I love to indulge in culinary delights, especially with typical good Carinthian company and when the food is traditional fare. If there's not enough time to play the 18-hole Championship Course, I opt for the 6-hole short course instead and the generous putting/chipping/pitching green."
Hotel Schladming, Golf & Country Club Dachstein Tauern, 3 June 2017
"To me, practicing at different golf courses is very important. The Falkensteiner Hotel Schladming offers the ideal starting point for the 4 Ennstaler golf facilities of Golfsafari Schladming-Dachstein. After my intense practice in the fresh mountain air, I like to enjoy the Schladminger Alpine wellness concept (e.g. a sports massage with arnica) followed by a well-balanced evening meal. As an athlete, this is where to go for an all-round care experience."
Therme & Golf Hotel Bad Waltersdorf, Golf Club Bad Waltersdorf, 15 July 2017
"When I wake up in the morning at Bad Waltersdorf, I only need to look out the window to see how delightfully the golf course is set into the landscape. After a hearty breakfast, it takes only a few steps to get to the golf course, which caters for both tourists and golf pros and includes an extensive driving range for me to practice on. I follow this up with a visit to the Acquapura Spa where I get to enjoy a relaxing massage and the bathing and sauna facilities. For me, this is the perfect place for a golf holiday!"
Hotel & Spa Bad Leonfelden, Golf Club St. Oswald, 22 July 2017
"I am particularly fond of the Mühlviertel region, the mystical landscape and the lovely treatments in the Acquapura Spa are ideal after golfing."
Grand MedSpa Marienbad, Golf Club Sokolov, 28 August 2017
"Western Bohemia is a must for any golf aficionado - it's only at Marienbad that you get to play on a "royal" golf course. And there are 5 more championship golf courses located right in the vicinity. Here, every day has a new challenge!“
Hotels in South Tyrol, Golf Club Pustertal. 3 September 2017
Family Hotel Lido Ehrenburgerhof
"I am delighted by the friendliness at the home base of the Falkensteiner family. This is the perfect place for families who discover golfing during their holiday or families who don't want to do without the pleasure of golfing on their family vacation. Hotel service includes assistance in booking tee times at the 9-hole GC Pustertal golf course, which is only minutes away, as well as a line up of golf accessories available directly in the hotel. Swell for all those interested in trying their hand at golf: on Sundays, hotel guests get to find out what golfing is like for free and golf equipment for both children and adults is available for rent.“
Hotel & Spa Falkensteinerhof
"Forgot your golf gloves? No problem at Falkensteinerhof. Guests are looked after with the warmest of hospitality. Perhaps Mrs. Falkensteiner will turn up out of the blue to present you with a golf towel or divot tool, too. The 40-minute drive from the hotel to the GC Pustertal golf course is always worth it. And on days when things don't go as they should on the golf course, the Falkensteinerhof team will be there to cheer you up. And here's my tip: The new rooms are great to sleep in and relax."
Hotel & Spa Alpenresidenz Antholz
"Way up high – there on the GC Pustertal golf course in Reischach or up in Antholzertal, both are exactly how I like it. The hotel is perfectly set up for athletes. No wonder, this biathlon mecca draws top-ranking athletes from near and far. It's something you sense right on arrival. Special dietary requirements are catered for, the fitness studio is well equipped, the wellness team attends perfectly to the needs of athletes and is glad to help with tips and advice. You've got it made here.“
Hotel & Spa Sonnenparadies
"Here at Sonnenparadies, I immediately felt at home. I'm not sure whether that was because of the mountains, or simply the friendly welcome. I'd say it was the whole atmosphere that you have here at the hotel. Golfclub Pustertal is close by the hotel and the 9-hole course invites you to enjoy the tranquility and the environment to the full. The best way to end the day after you get back to the hotel from a pleasurable round of golf is to spend it by the pool, in the sauna or spa."
