512 GC Mittersill [0]

NOT MANY ASCENTS, MANY SOLOPES – A single view of the landscape with the castle in the background calms down the golfers at GC Mittersill, everything seems to be at the right place – at least to start off with

On all 18 holes there is water part of the game, always at the sides, and at 12 holes directly up front. The hint of Headpro Tom Paterson seems obvious – a lot of courage, a ball landing net and many balls, most of them those, you always wanted to lose anyway. And for those you want to keep, you get a concept of survival. “A visit to the driving range is an absolute must”, Tom Paterson gives the advice – not to warm up, but to check out the carry-distance of your swings. “This is vital, if you want to play with the water rather than against it.”

Rich of water
MittersillNEU1We start the round with respect and already at the first hole we meet one of many creeks, which sneak through the fairways. Calmly we forget about lost balls in the water hazards at the first few holes and look excitedly forward to hole number 5 (Par 3, 180/152 metres). “My favourite hole”, Paterson tells, showing pride, “after 33 very long years I played my first “hole-in-one” here.”

There is water to the right; a bunker strengthens the defence of the Green – for high handicap players it is recommended to play a shorter hit in order to chip the next ball onto the long Green and place it well there. We ignore this advice for the time being and attack the Green. Without points, but not sad, because there is much to get at hole 6 (short Par 5, 463/432 metres) as far as scoring is concerned: Water hazards are staying at the side and the Green is fantastically undefended.

Doglegs
At the second nine holes, the rhythm of the game is changing, doglegs are dominating the run of the game – the water stays though. The most difficult hole is number 13 (Par 5, 559/531 metres). Paterson recommends playing with a wood before the hazard – only few players are able to carry the tee-shot over the water. The second hit also asks for caution – you need to play it short. After that – ideally – there is just 120 metres left to the Green. We then ask for the real fun of doglegs – the short cuts. “There is none”, he replies, “every short cut leads over water hazards and therefore can end up in an unwanted extension”. Our favourite hole is number 16, a Par 3 (170/132 metres), without bunkers with a wide fairway.

With a controlled hit in front of the Green we have a real chance free of water for Par. The optimism stays until the 18th hole (Par 3, 144/110 metres), where the atrocities in form of water (what else?) combined with kibitzer at the club house terrace hits us full blast – a ball-eating peninsula Green, which can only be hit with a whole-hearted swing. Insecure players are recommended to play to the left hand side, because there is better dropping places – just in case. The viewers are thrilled. “They gamble”, Paterson laughs. The definitely earned some cash, the way we play.
