608 GC Schloss Frauenthal [0]

RECONSTRUCTION AND ANNEX – While one adds new courses to attract attention, the other one uses corrections of the same – like Schloss Frauenthal for example.

It was founded in 1988 with the initiative of a medical doctor George Breisach, who just didn’t want to commute from Deutschlandsberg to Murhof anymore. Turning quickly into a hit thanks to flatter and nicer nine holes in the park, it took almost 10 years before the 18-hole-course was finally officially opened.

“We extended already in 1998, but we took our time until the official opening”, Breisach smirked. All together about 200.000 Euro were put into the – hopefully final – reconstruction. Input was taken from the top pros from Austria, who celebrated their Matchplay master in Frauenthal in 2003. Breisach:” We just gave them pen and paper and asked them to put all their ideas down.” Ideas, that obviously were good ones: So, for example, all tight drive landing zones were cleared out. Holes 16, 17 and 18 were put together to a nice tricky Par 5 which releases the golfers with a guaranteed good feeling off the round: Uphill, comfortably wide and easily to reach with two hits. To compensate the “loss” of two fairways, others had to be created – and have a look at those!

Hole number 2 was completely and hole 3 half way rebuilt: From a new tee you now play onto the former second Green and the new, additional Signature Hole is as per now hole nine, a lovely Par 3 over a water hazard. Don’t get confused with hole 11 (former hole 9), a sandwedge short Par 3 in front of the club house. Fully seven acres – all of them from the princely estates of the Liechtensteins – were loaned for the extension, which was, thanks to the team of green keepers was built without any complaints. “A big thank you to all of the green keepers, especially Herbert Weissensteiner, green keeper of the year 2005! Not only did they manage to reconstruct the course within a year, we can also be happy and proud about stainless Greens in Frauenthal,” Breisach happily says.

By the way: The floridity on the course round the picture of the golf club, which also knows how to score as far as gastronomy is concerned, Breisach tells:” Here in Frauenthal there is no tournament without at least a three course menu afterwards.” It really is a club to feel well through and through.
