Golfclub Schloss Ebreichsdorf: The 18-hole course is situated in the middle of a park-like meadow, a part of the old park of the palace. The fairways are framed by an old stock of trees, interrupted by watercourses, ponds and biotopes. Golfclub Ebreichsdorf offers one of the largest driving range in Austria. The club house was built by the famous architect Prof. Hans Hollein in 1988. It offers golfers all comforts of a modern, exclusive ambiente.
The most difficult hole on the scorecard comes early in the round at the 391-yard (357 meters) 2nd hole, where trees cutting in to the left of the fairway mask the full width of the tee shot landing area. The approach shot then requires pinpoint accuracy, as it’s played to an island green with trees positioned to the right side of the putting surface.
Another couple of par fours catch the eye on the back nine, the first of which is the short par four 13th, ranked as the easiest hole on the course with its 302 meters. It may look an innocuous hole from the teebox, but protective bunkers to the left, right and front of the green are designed to cause maximum grief to those who fall foul of them.
The 376-yard 17th is classic risk/reward hole with a split fairway that allows an easier drive to the left but a more difficult approach over trees to the green – aim for the tougher, sand-threatened right fairway with the tee shot and there’s an easier line in to the green for the second shot.
The Golfclub Schloss Ebreichsdorf can be reached from Vienna in 30 minutes via the A2 (south motorway) or the A3 (southeast motorway).
