The best time to golf in Carinthia is in spring and autumn. April and May as well as September and October are perfect months: pleasant temperatures make extended rounds on the golf courses in Carinthia a pure pleasure. In addition, in spring there is thriving nature and lush greens, while in autumn there are often long periods of perfect weather and the changing colours of the autumn vegetation create a beautiful atmosphere. You can also save additional money with the "Alpe-Adria-Golf Card" until 30th of April and from 7th of October: During this time, two play for the price of one.
Also the summer from June to August is a wonderful time for golfing in Carinthia: Sometimes it is rather hot for golfing from noon with temperatures around 30 °C, but in the mornings there are always good conditions for you as a golfer. And afterwards you can unwind depending upon desire and mood at one of the gorgeous lakes for which Carinthia is renowned: Most golf courses in Carinthia are located directly at or near a swimming lake. This is the perfect way to combine your favourite sport with a relaxing summer holiday.
In November, many golf courses in Carinthia slowly return to winter dormancy until their reopening in March or no later than the beginning of April.
In order for us to reserve your tee time for you, you need to have a club membership and a club card with a registered handicap. The handicap required for each course is listed in the description of the golf courses.
Difficulty of the golf courses in Carinthia:
• Technical requirements: The challenge of the Carinthian golf courses and thus the demands on your golf game vary depending on the golf course. Most of them in Carinthia are Parkland Courses. The golf course in Bad Kleinkirchheim is quite similar to a mountain course. All in all, the golf courses in Carinthia appeal to a wide audience, from beginners to professionals, although of course the courses have very different characters.
We use the common scorecard system as the course rating for the golf courses. You can find useful information about this system here. Additionally, for a quick overview, we have evaluated the requirements of the golf courses with a five-level difficulty system (column "Level of difficulty"). You will find this evaluation as well as the scorecard in the respective description of the golf course..
All participating golf courses also have a spacious training section where you can improve your technical skills. You can optionally be supported by a pro on each golf course.
• Conditional requirements: All golf courses described here are 18-hole courses, occasionally with additional 9-hole courses available. Many courses are slightly hilly to hilly in topography, but there are also flat courses. All in all, the courses are well feasible for normally trained golfers, especially as there are no special difficulties on any of the courses, such as altitudes above 1.500 m above sea level.
Physical requirements - health risks
Golf is a sport that is very good for body and mind due to the moderate and manageable physical exertion. The cardiovascular stress in golf is generally low to moderate. In summer (July/August), temperature and humidity can lead to additional demands on the cardiovascular system for sensitive persons in the afternoon. If in doubt, it is better to play in the morning during such heat waves.
However, about 40% of recreational golfers suffer at times from complaints of the support and movement system, especially in the area of the back, hand and elbow joints. As with many other sports, the causes of the complaints are often less due to the intensity of the strain than to a wrong technique. On your golf trip, use the know-how of a pro to improve your technique - for the quality of your game and for your health.
In addition to your personal luggage, you will of course need golf equipment on your golf trip. Electric carts and trolleys can be rented on all golf courses, and rental club sets and electric trolleys are also available for a fee on many courses.
There is also a well-stocked golf shop on every golf course, where you can complete your golf equipment under good advice.
On the golf courses in Carinthia, appropriate golf clothing and golf shoes with soft spikes are usually mandatory. On most courses GPS devices are allowed.
For a closer look, check out the detailed information for each stage along the trail here. The times are average values and may vary depending on personal fitness, number and length of breaks, weather conditions, etc. In case of Self drive tours (overland) the drive times are based on our empirical values.show Stages
