Saturday, 16 September 2017Best of the Alps Golf Cup

On Saturday, 16 September 2017, the Best of the Alps golf tournament will take place in Lech for the first time. This tournament is being held for the 7th time and 10 of the 12 classic Alpine resorts now hold a tournament in this series.

Some of the courses are the most traditional venues in the Alpine region and offer top-quality golf. The breathtaking views of Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn, the North Face of the Eiger, the Dolomites, and now also the Schafberg in Lech provide great golfing enjoyment in a unique landscape. And it is now a well-known fact that the tournaments are almost always held in bright sunshine.

THE TIME HAS FINALLY COMEBest of the Alps Golf Cup

The highest tee in Austria. Located at 1,509 metres above sea level - in Lech Zürs am Arlberg. It is the first tee on the course. On 27 June 2016, a golden ball was played from here to inaugurate the first golf course in the Arlberg. And, of course, all subsequent balls will travel further on this course.  This is because the air is thinner at this high altitude, so the air resistance is lower, and this makes the shot more powerful. Short hitters will find it difficult to believe how far their ball whizzes through the air. And they will excitedly tell everyone back at home how fantastic it is to drive a golf ball on the course in Lech Zürs am Arlberg. Which achieves the main purpose of the course, which is to give holidaymakers an experience that makes them happy. And we hope that you will thoroughly enjoy the Best of the Alps Golf Cup tournament in Lech.
