What courses will you get to play?
Albatross Golf Club, Albatross Course
Prague, Czech Republic
Host of the Czech Open
Designed by Keith Preston, and opened in 2009, the golf course occupies an area of more than 80 hectares (197,684 acres) and is situated on a hillside bordering the Cesky Kras Nature Reserve. There are seven lakes on the course covering more than 20,000 square meters, 65 sand traps, and more than 1200 newly planted mature trees adorning the landscape.
Quellness Golf Resort, Beckenbauer Course
Bad Griesbach, Germany
Host of the Porsche European Open
Regal golfing pleasure on lush greens and perfect fairways – this championship course, created by former Masters champion Bernhard Langer, seems to be one with the meadow landscape surrounding the small river Rott and was awarded a “world-class” rating within one year of opening. The 18 holes in Penning, right beside the Porsche Golf Course, do indeed pack a punch. They don’t hold back when it comes to challenges, but also offer sufficient opportunities for some serious success.
Golf Club Adamstal
Host of the Austrian Open
Without a doubt one of the most beautiful courses in the world, and not only according to Golf Digest. This Jeff Howes design is truly a masterpiece and even after playing it countless times there are still moments of “Wow!” and “Incredible!” Situated amidst the impressive scenery of the alpine foothills, Golf Club Adamstal is a true jewel—from the well-tended greens and fairways to the clubhouse.
The magnificent 27-hole course perfectly blends into the high forest, providing a place to feel at peace. The panoramic view and the pleasant atmosphere guarantee a pure golf experience. Amongst its fans, Golf Club Adamstal has always ranked as one of the top golf courses in Europe.

Host of the Slovakian Open
This 18-hole golf course has been built according to plans authored by Nicklaus Design, one of the world’s leading design firms. The Nicklaus Design LEGEND COURSE complies with USGA standards at the world PGA level. 60% of the world’s golf courses that host PGA tournaments have been designed by Nicklaus Design. Along with many other scenic features, this course counts the longest hole in Europe among its challenges.
Pannonia Country Club
Host of the Hungarian Open
The 18-hole golf course of Pannonia Golf & Country Club was designed by the famous Austrian course designer Hans G. Erhardt. The golf course lies in a valley, so its fairways' varied forms provide a great golf experience. Lakes come into play at 8 holes and pin placements may also present a challenge at the hilly greens. With 6 different tee boxes, both beginners and advanced players can get a true and fair idea of their golf skills. The natural environment and the beautiful, carefully maintained course inspire golf players to hit great shots.
