620 GC Bad Waltersdorf [0]

NUMBER 8 IS STILL ALIVE! – “Take your best drives with you and you will have lots of fun”, Mag. Klaus Geyrhofer, highest manager of the Murhof-group lures.

(From GR 6/2005)

Bad Waltersdorf, already trimmed completely for its wellness tourism, starts off with golf & wellness now. Thanks to 18 well designed holes – we tell you more later on – and most of all thanks to widely ranged practising facilities.

The Murhof-group always had a big heart for golf sport, thanks to their boss, ÖGV president Mag. Johannes Goess-Saurau, who was still active until March that year. With such a baroque equipment of driving range, putting, chipping and bunker Greens, Waltersdorf even exceeds every expectation. And I am not saying this, because I want to butter up the president: I tell you this, because I really am excited – and you will be too. Three terrace tees placed in a semicircle (twice grass, once mat) and three really huge practising Greens (one to putt, a second to practice chips and putts from all different areas and finally a third one to perfect bunker hits) turn even me into a range-tiger. The club is harmonious as a whole and acts with a lot of brains, something, which was missing for the last 15 years, when the people from Waltersdorf themselves tried to jump onto the golf express.

The absolutely touristy way forced Michael Pinner, architect of the Murhof-group, into a tight corset, which the Englishman loved obviously. Pinner has designed the course like a terrace on almost 50 acres and didn’t save on excavator works. 130.000 cubic metres of mud were moved simultaneously by 20 working excavators – most of it being used to build the terraces, which had to be cut into the slope. You can also see at first sight, what happened to the digging material: strongly moving Green surroundings and tricky fairways. With that, Pinner deceives the eye and you better not play your gut feeling, but trust the real yardage. The waves give the feeling of being much closer to the Green than you really are. Geyrhofer: “There had to be waves in order to ensure a better draining of the course. Other than that it looks very nice and strengthens the tactical aspect.” For the first time, the construction of the course was not given to an external company, but from A to Z looked after by Alois Obendrauf, the head green keeper of Maria Lankowitz, who Klaus Geyerhofer scatters roses: “This really was a masterpiece, especially the coordination of the excavation machinery was a real challenge.”

All in all, the Pinner-course is a well designed mixture of a lot of driving space and a speed-brake off the tee at the same time. Holes 1, 10 and 18 lie head to head due to the lack of rough, which is not planned for the future as well and you can almost play anything off the tee. From hole 2 onwards it turns a little trickier, a 414 to 481 metres long Par 5, which forces long hitters to think because of the ditch in the middle of the driving zone. You can always plan three hits, if you want to hit the Green. After that, Pinner serves several interesting holes. Hole number 3, for example, which is designed as a dogleg and which is hard to play with its 326 to 379 metres, because the hit to the Green leads uphill. A nice, not too long Par 3 with a tight gap to the Green due to the forest is followed by an also short but tricky Par 4. Up until the ninth hole use your brain rather than hitting it long – after that, you will be able to gamble a little. The back nine holes run with the first ones like a giant slalom. Funny: 12th hole, a maximum 222 metres long dogleg Par 4, which gives hope for a birdie. For long hitters it is recommended to use a wood 3, maybe even an iron 1. But with all the cockiness, the course asks for, you should pay a little bit attention: Who ever spreads his hits too much, finds him on the wrong terrace. Start also oiling your voice, so the “fore” can be heard firmly everywhere. By the way: You can congratulate the course as well as the location is concerned: located not even 5 minutes away from the motorway A2, Exit Bad Waltersdorf/Sebersdorf so you are quickly at the first tee.
