In the tri-border region of Austria/Slovenia/Italy it is best to play golf in spring and autumn. April and May as well as September and October are the perfect months: pleasant temperatures make extended rounds on the golf courses in Carinthia/Slovenia/Friaul a pure pleasure. In addition, in spring there is a sprouting nature and lush greens, while in autumn there are often long periods of fine weather and the colourful vegetation is a beautiful scene. In addition, you can save additional money with the "Alpe-Adria-Golf Card" until the 30th of April and from the 7th of October: During this period, two players play for the price of one (except Royal Bled Golf).
But also the summer from June to August is a wonderful time for golfing in Carinthia/Slovenia/Friaul: Sometimes it gets quite hot for golfing at noon with temperatures around 30°C, but in the mornings there are always good conditions for you as a golfer. Afterwards you can relax according to your mood at Lake Wörthersee, Lake Faaker See, Lake Bleder See or Lake Predil: each golf course is situated directly at a beautiful swimming lake or only a few kilometres away. This is the perfect way to combine your favourite sport with a relaxing summer holiday.
In November, the golf courses in the border triangle Carinthia/Slovenia/Friuli 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:
• Technical requirements: The difficulty of the golf courses in the border triangle Carinthia/Slovenia/Friaul and thus the requirements for your golf game vary from golf course to golf course. Most golf courses in this region are Parkland Courses. The golf course in Tarvisio can be considered a mountain course. All in all, the golf courses in the border triangle appeal to a wide audience, from beginners to professionals, because they 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 on many courses rental club sets and electric trolleys are also available for a fee.
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 the Alpe-Adria Region, appropriate golf clothing and golf shoes with soft spikes are usually mandatory. On most courses GPS devices are allowed.
