The country is always a popular stop for the European Tour - here’s why
THE Czech Republic is one of the most visited countries in Europe right now - and it is currently in the middle of a golf boom.
Lying at the centre of the Czech Republic, the capital of Prague is often portrayed with the Vltava River meandering through its heart, running under the remarkable Charles Bridge filled with pedestrians walking from Old Town Square towards the Prague castle perched atop the skyline. The Prague area has more than ten superb 18-hole courses within an hour from the heart of the city.
Karlstejn golf course is roughly 45 minutes from Prague and is the only Czech course in the area that has hosted a European Tour event, the Chemapol Trophy Czech Open back in 1997. The resort offers 27 holes while the original 18-hole course offers unique views of Karlstejn castle.
Konopiste is another unique golf complex southeast from Prague. The biggest golf resort in the Czech Republic, players of all levels will enjoy the setting, which is cut sympathetically into the rolling hillside and forests with some inventive features.
Albatross is considered the new star in this region. Set near the village of Vysoký Újezd, it is easily accessible from Prague airport, this championship test was built with a vision to create the No.1 course in the country.
Abante golf packages for two nights in Prague on B&B basis, two rounds of golf and all airport and golf transfers start from £199pp based on four golfers.
