The only thing missing from Lech Zürs am Arlberg to make it the perfect summer destination for mountain holidaymakers in every respect, was a golf course. The time has now come: after two years of construction, one of the most beautiful and highest golf courses in the Alpine region is due to open on 24 June 2016.
Fore!Golf course in Zug
A 19-hectare, handicap 9-hole golf course that both beginners and professionals can enjoy – this is the new attraction that will be open to all friends of the sport in Lech Zürs from June 2016. Located at 1,500 metres above sea level and set amidst magnificent mountain scenery, it is an ideal place to take on the sporting challenge. The fairways are designed so that players have to play over the Lech river several times.Golfing in Lech
