710 GC Ellmau [0]

HEAVEN AND EARTH – Georg Winkler senior has managed the ski world Wilder Kaiser for 25 years and was significantly involved in the touristy progress.

Thanks to him (and two further owners of the GC Ellmau, Dr. Bernd Heitzmann and Joachim Strickroth), the village is not only a skiing and wandering eldorado anymore, but also a golfing experience since the year 2000. And success proves the pioneer right, who plays a round of golf each evening whenever there is time: 14.000 Greenfee guests per year are even a top number in touristy places and the amount of members should be increased from 750 to 850 with the construction of the new nine holes.

A golf course as eye-catcher
Not only were some downsides erased with the building of the new holes, like long distances between some holes, but also sportive and aesthetic points of view were adhered to. With two special machines big sunflower and tulip fields were sown: Passers by are allowed to pick them for a little bit of money. Half a dozen of nice huts were built as shelters, i.e. from Stanglwirt-boss Reinhard Stocker right next to the first tee, because thunderstorms in this region are very feisty. And since this year, for the first time, sheep are on the course as well, which run around on two meadows (next to the holes 1 and 7/8) and which excites Ian Shaw, headpro in Ellmau. The born Scotsman from Carnoustie, the määähhhkka, sorry: Mecca of the Scottish golf sport, has been living in Tyrol for 17 years and is mainly excited about the golf juveniles, which he trains together with Pro and former club champion Hannes Recheis. 3 years ago, there were only 16 children, nowadays over 70 kids use the facility of the “junior pass” juvenile practising with the pros and 4 coaches.

New nines
EllmauNEU2With the new fairways, the course wasn’t just extended, it was completely shuffled up. Result are three similar loops as far as the score is concerned “Ellmau”, “Wilder Kaiser”, and “Tirol”, which can be combined randomly to an eighteen hole round. The former hole 3, a Par 5 with long walking distance, changed into Par 4 “Wilder Kaiser, hole 3” with new Green, which is followed by a completely new hole 4. Instead of long walking distance there is now a long drive across a distinctive water hazard with picturesque Kitzbühler Horn in the background. The other new holes, too, prove the golf course owner right and confirm impressively the idea of sportive, beautiful fairways in front of fantastic panorama. Although: “The thing with the golf course here, was never an easy story”, Winkler says:” You always need people, who stand behind it, like in former days at the construction of the cable car. And so we continue to start new things until devil gets us!”
