Just in time to kick off the golf season, it’s now official: Golf legend Markus Brier is Falkensteiner’s new Golf Ambassador. 


Markus Brier’s career

The Vienna-born player started playing golf at the age of eight, which led to an unprecedented career in Austria. By eleven, he had already won his first club championship victory. After a successful amateur career, at the age of 27 he turned pro, and just four years later he qualified for the European Tour. He is the first Austrian to have won the Austrian Open, in Fontana in 201a. In 2007, he became successful abroad by winning the China Open in Shanghai.
After an incredible career, in 2013 Markus Brier retired from professional golf and has been coaching junior golfers with the Austrian Golf Federation (ÖGV) ever since.

“Golf is part of my life. After my own successes, I’m passionate about getting the next generation hooked on this exciting sport”, says Markus Brier. 

Falkensteiner Golf Ambassador

From the beginning of 2018, Markus Brier is now Falkensteiner’s new Golf Ambassador:

“During my time as a professional golfer, I’ve spent lots of time in hotels. In order to play my best, I needed to feel as comfortable as possible away from the course. This is why a hotel’s quality, atmosphere, and service are very important to me. At Falkensteiner, my expectations are fulfilled to my utmost satisfaction”, so Markus Brier.

Erich Falkensteiner, Chairman of the Board of the FMTG, is thrilled with his new “Golf Ambassador”:

Thanks to Markus Brier, we’ve managed to win ourselves a world-class athlete. It’s not only because of sports, but also due to the human touch that makes it such a valuable partnership. For years, he has been committed to promoting junior golf and as a father-of-two, he knows just how important it is to introduce children to sports at an early age. We’re looking forward to working with Markus Brier.”
