Golfing in Lech Zürs

Golf Austria’s highest fairways and enjoy the breathtakingly beautiful scenery of the wild, yet gently rolling landscape of the Zugertal valley.

Ever since the golf course in Zug opened in 2016, the dream of golfing in crystal-clear mountain air on the Arlberg finally became reality. Stylishly and harmoniously embedded in the Alpine landscape of the Zugertal valley, this sophisticated 9-hole, handicap-friendly course boasts thrilling new perspectives of the surrounding pristine nature at every tee. The 19-hectare golf course, Austria’s highest, is situated at 1500 metres above sea level.

The golf course in Zug: The joy of golf amidst the fantastic natural scenery.

Designed by landscape architects with the aim of harmoniously integrating the course into the surrounding natural environment, this high-elevation course challenges you to shoot over the Lech River at several points. Along the way, you’ll also need to take various inclines into account when teeing off or putting. The sheer variety of the terrain makes every hole a unique experience.

 

 

Driving range & golf school

 

Driving range, putting green and chipping area: If you’re just learning the game or are looking to get your Platzreife proficiency certificate, you’ll find a wide range of training opportunities at the nearby Zug practice facilities and at the Hotel Berghof in the village centre of Lech. This is also where the golf school is located, which offers courses for all handicaps - from beginners to professionals. Experienced players can perfect their technique during private training sessions. 

Lech Golf Club - An outstanding tournament location

Annual and now well-established tournaments such as the "Arlberg Classic Golf Cup,” which takes place in the run-up to the Arlberg Classic Car Rally, are special highlights in the event calendar. During this tournament, holiday guests play together with locals and regional hoteliers. All participants appreciate the sociable atmosphere and the ‘Olympic spirit.’ Another highlight is the "Best of the Alps Golf Tournament", a must-attend event for golf fans. This transnational tournament takes place during the summer months at 10 of the Alps’ most beautiful golf courses. 

Celebrate at the golf course

After the last hole, swap wood and iron for knife and fork. The club restaurant, “Holz°7,”is a veritable round table of hospitality boasting the best regional ingredients: Vorarlberg original spelt flour for in-house pizza and pasta dishes, Sunday BBQs with grilled delicacies from Arlberg butchers, and always homemade sweet temptations in best baristro style. In any case, a spot for you on the terrace, the best seats in the house with panoramic views of the greens and peaks, is as good as reserved. The clubhouse still has plenty to offer even on rainy days: the sports bar showcases the wide world of sports on the screen in high definition.
