715 GC Zugspitze-Tirol [0]

EXIT ZUGSPITZE – At the beginning there was the idea of a golf course, well stated by the hoteliers of the region. They needed something to prolong the season.

ZugspitzNEU1

There were many tries in finding the right terrain and finally when they found it, they needed several times to persuade the environmentalists as well. Although they are very hard to persuade, it finally worked out. The Leermoser Moor, on which the golf course should be built, should not be touched. Now, everybody is happy about the opening of the golf course, which has been finished in October 2004, but ever since then was rested in order to present it in a perfect condition at the opening. It was rarely the case that the proverb “what ever takes a long time, will finally be good” fitted so well on a golf facility.

And it is easily to understand, that the GC Zugspitze-Tirol, officially opened in June, was designed very flatly due to the environmental caring way of building. Responsible for the GC as architect was once more DI Hans-Georg Erhardt. The specialist for tough cases has obeyed every guideline and was able to design an exciting course despite the flat landscape. To keep the terrain dry, at least the top layer was drained – the biggest bumps you will find on the Greens.

“This is not a disadvantage, “Manager of the Zugspitze says: “however, we have enough mountains as scenery!” The 9-hole-course Panorama is situated in a basin at the bottom of the Zugspitze, which is the highest mountain of Germany with 2963 metres and the Ehrwalder Sonnenspitze. Both mountains dominate the big picture of the golf facility: You hit every ball from the driving range towards the Zugspitze and after the round, you take a drink at the terrace and face the Sonnenspitze. And whoever has a soft spot for that should stay at least until 9pm at summer times at the clubhouse. After that the valley dawns already and the sunset produces a laser-show for both mountain tops.

A wonderful spectacle
ZugspitzNEU2As unspectacular flat the golf course was designed as fantastic the responsible people built the club house: an igloo made of grass, designed by the Ehrwalder architect Armin Walch, is definitely the most extraordinary clubhouse in Austria. Hubert Oswald explains why:” We had to decide between an old-fashioned normal clubhouse tyrolean style and the future like igloo. And because we were already limited as far as the golf course was concerned, at least the club house should be worth talking about.” But we believe that also the course itself is worth talking about. Despite the fact, that it has been set up for golfing tourists, the course magically puts some “Ahhs” onto the faces of the first time players.

No forest, just meadows
This is why they left rich meadows in addition to the throughout wide fairways, which definitely got enough food during the run of time in form of golf balls. But, as we say, whoever is that far offline doesn’t deserve it any other way. Hole 3 is the most impressive hole: This very nice Par 3 is hard enough from the back tees to even hurt ambitious golfers – lengths 170 metres – and the Green is defended by a pond to the right hand side. Also interesting: Hole 9, a double dogleg-Par-5, which has to be played alongside the out of bounds border to the left by brave players.

Now, that the opening has been celebrated successfully, they are already planning the next step at Ehrwald – the extension to 18 holes. There is enough area to use and we hope for all people involved that this extension doesn’t last another 14 years.
