703 GC Innsbruck-Igls [0]

36 HOLES PER DAY – To start off with, congratulation is overdue. GC Innsbruck-Igls will be 70 years of age this year: Traditional golfing above the capital. The people of Innsbruck don’t celebrate this seventieth anniversary; they are still waiting out of traditional reasons.

Although the courses in Rinn and Lans-Sperberegg were already set up for celebration – a result of the costly reconstruction work of the last couple of years. In charge of it as far as the club is concerned was President Heinrich Menardi, who leads the club since 1996. Planning and design were made by Diethard Fahrenleitner and Barbara Eisserer. At the Lanser course, which has owned a modern club house since 1999, the Greens 2 and 8 were reconstructed, a fairway irrigation plant was installed and the pond at the sixth hole was enlarged. Architect Fahrenleitner: “The turf, too, was completely renewed. Due to the age – Lans was built in 1945 – the thatch was so big, that the terrain could take any more water.”

IglsNEU3What was left was the familiar character of the course, which was designed similar to an English park land course. Lans is ideal for a quick round, because of the flat fairways, “for airing”, as club manager Gerhard Nagele calls it. Even despite its subtle hazards, Lans is not easy to play – the 18-hole-course in Rinn, just seven kilometres away is much more sportive – Not only because of its lengths but also because of its fairways, being situated at the north side of the southern slopes (Nagele).

You realise only on some holes the differences in levels from the tee to the pin (i.e. 13/14) which is never a problem to play though. But due to the fact, that the fairways are placed along the terraces, you can feel heavy legs at the end of a round. Rinn, as well, was consequently renewed during the last years, whereby the finish (holes 15 to 18, Par 4/5/5/3, they are now 4 lanes with lots of character) and the extended club house attract special attention to Rinn-golfers. (Golf architect Fahrenleitner has some great ideas for Rinn for the future, for example how he could change the “unfair situation on Greens” at holes 3/11/12, but members don’t want to see any excavation machines after all these reconstruction works.)

The connecting element between Lans and Rinn is also gastronome Werner Ginther. He returned to Innsbruck after years of being abroad and cooks in Lans as well as in Rinn. Together, these two restaurants offer more than 200 seats, which is enough even during highly frequented tournaments. Guests feel, that Innsbruck is a club with strong roots, because old fashioned stuff like etiquette is an important thing here. It can happen, that club manager Nagele and spaghetti straps on a female guest are not compatible, which will be discussed in a nice manner. However, it is definitely incredible, how the membership club Innsbruck manages to treat members (1026) and guests (about 10.000 Green fee guests/year) the same way. Chapeau! We never ever want to hear the prejudice of “stubborn Tyroleans” ever again.
