GOLF, JUST STRAIGHT AHEAD – When Scotsmen drink their whisky straight, they call it „naked“. Enjoyment straight – similar straight, how they play golf at GC Schloss Ernegg.

No unnecessary dalliance of design, no false pathos of the owners, no social frippery: GC Ernegg is trained like Sir Sebastian Coe. In Britain there are dozens of Erneggs (The former Club Chairman Hilda Auersberg-Lee and here husband took the concept from over there), because golf is a people’s sport in England. This is why Ernegg didn’t have an easy start in Austria: Our golf scene wasn’t ripe for a club, ten to fifteen years ago, where a filling station agent plays golf with an oil sheikh.

And it wasn’t ready for the plain ambience, which Ernegg resembled back then, due to economic reasons. The take-over of the club through the Sportunion, didn’t change the fine character of GC Ernegg – but the organisational and technical processes became more professional: Without noticing by members and Green-fee-guests in an unpleasant way, the club turned more and more into an enterprise, which invests, modernises, expands, publishes a club magazine and applies for big tournaments.

What stayed is the appearance, which positively tastes of tradition, and which can hardly be found elsewhere in Austria. Simple tee-boxes, scarred fairways – bumpy as the brits say, which let the ball bounce like a rabbit. There are flat bunkers, which let the hillside look like a wave towards the pin. Greens, built on natural soil, with partial distinctive steps – sometimes fast, sometimes slow – and wonderfully designed to play a chip-and-run. A strawy rough – hard to play, but easy finding lost balls in it. A good mixture of easy and remarkable golf lanes (you cross the small river Erlauf three times, once you play alongside an alley of trees and hole number 13, a Par 3, surrounded by bunkers, which has a lot of classic golf courses as role models).

Let’s praise the Head-greenkeeper finally. Dave Baker: His strategy “little by often” paid out – many small steps made GC Ernegg to a rewarding target of golf. But Baker is not completely content yet: “A golf course is hard work for a lifetime”, Baker says and there is always room for improvement.
