Golf and active holidays in Zell am See
With its beautiful lakeside setting and the snow-capped peaks and glaciers of the Hohe Tauern National Park in the distance, Zell am See has been attracting summer and winter holidaymakers for many years.
The resort town has a very attractive pedestrianised centre with a wide choice of cafÃ©s, restaurants and shops. The lake provides plenty of water-based activities and the mountain lifts access some great walks with amazing views of snow-capped mountains including Austria’s highest mountain, the Grossglockner. Popular day trips include Salzburg (direct train connection), the Krimml Waterfalls and the Hohe Tauern National Park.
The Golf Club Zell am Seeâ€“Kaprun is located just a few minutes from Zell am See and boasts two 18-hole championship whose fairways have been graced by the likes of sporting legends Greg Norman, Seve Ballesteros and Bernhard Langer (the course record holder).
In addition to these two excellent local courses, there are are a further ten courses within an hour’s drive and Zell am See’s proximity to Salzburg makes it ideal for short breaks. For maximum golf and minimum nights in resort, you could also consider playing one of Salzburg’s local courses on your arrival or departure day.
There is also summer skiing on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier at Kaprun: For a particularly active alpine day, why not consider skiing on the glacier in the morning and rounding off the afternoon with a round of golf at one of Zell am See’s championship 18 hole golf courses!
Salzburg is approximately one hour’s drive and Munich is around two and a half hours.

|Golf Club Zell am See - Kaprun||36 holes: Â 6218 m, Par 72 ; 6146 m, Par 73|
A member of â€˜Leading golf courses Austriaâ€™ and Austriaâ€™s largest Alpine Golf centre, the Golf Club at Zell am See-Kaprun boasts two championship courses whose fairways have once upon a time graced the likes of Greg Norman and Seve Ballesteros.
The flat, wide and sunny valley hosts the two 18-hole courses (â€˜Schmittenhoheâ€™ and â€˜Kitzsteinhornâ€™) both of which make good use of water, trees, sand and the local landscape to offer a varied and challenging round of golf. The clubhouse patio offers stunning views of the snow-capped Kitzsteinhorn Glacier.
|Golf Club Urslautal||5967 metres, Par 71|
Set on a natural plateau under the gaze of the impressive Steinernes Meer mountains, the first couple of holes present a relatively easy warm up on two short par 4â€™s before the course opens up over gentle and undulating terrain. Hay barns dotting the landscape add to the character of the course and the back nine presents several testing long holes all framed by the towering mountain backdrop that is a significant feature of this course. The welcome at the clubhouse is friendly and relaxed and, if you still havenâ€™t had enough of those mountain views, the clubhouse terrace will give you plenty of opportunity to soak it all up. Alpine Golf at its best.
|Golf Club Mittersill||5596 metres, Par 70|
Mittersill is a small town about 20 minutes down the valley from Zell am See and is also easily accessible from Kitzbuhel. The course lies in the valley floor and is flat but challenging with good use of water. Whilst not the longest golf course in Austria by any means, rustic hay barns, plenty of water and an island green to close combine to make this a challenging and very good, tactical test of golf.
|Golf Club Brandlhof||6089 metres, Par 72|
This course, which lies in the valley floor, was designed by Donald Haradine and is flanked on both sides by huge granite cliff faces and mountains. The Saalach river gently meanders its way through the valley floor and the course presents no less than six river crossings to tempt your ball to a watery grave. The pine forests that separate the holes are well established and there is no better sight in the Alps than seeing a well-struck ball rise and fall against a granite rock face.
|Golf Club Gastein||5576 metres, Par 71|
Golf Club Gastein, founded in 1960, is one of the oldest and most traditional golf clubs in Austria. Located in the middle of the Hohe Tauern National Park, the course offers 18 holes over well-manicured, undulating fairways set amongst mature and well-established trees. The course is around 40 kilometres from Zell am See and enjoys a quiet location outside the popular spa resort of Bad Gastein.
