QUELLNESS GOLF RESORT BECKENBAUER COURSE
Bad Griesbach, Germany
The host of the Porsche European Open
Regal golfing pleasure on lush greens and perfect fairways – this championship course, created by former Masters champion Bernhard Langer, seems to be one with the meadow landscape surrounding the small river Rott and was awarded a “world class” rating within one year of opening. The 18 holes in Penning, right beside the Porsche Golf Course, do indeed pack a punch. They don’t hold back when it comes to challenges, but also offer enough opportunities for some serious success.
What makes this golf course so special is the quality of the hand-mown greens and fairways, which remain tip-top even during the summer thanks to a double-row irrigation system.

DIAMOND COUNTRY CLUB DIAMOND COURSE
The host of the Lyoness Austrian Open
This Championship course, host of the Lyoness Open, on the outskirts of Vienna, challenges every player’s ability, thanks to the need for good course management and that important element of water.

PANNONIA COUNTRY CLUB
The host of the Hungarian Open
The 18-hole golf course of Pannonia Golf & Country Club was designed by the famous Austrian course designer Hans G. Erhardt. The golf course lies in a valley, so the varied forms of its fairways provide a great golf experience. Lakes come into play at 8 holes and pin placements may also present a challenge at the hilly greens. With 6 different tee-boxes, both beginners and advanced players can get a true and fair idea of their golf skills. The natural environment and the beautiful carefully maintained course inspires golf players to hit great shots.
Erhardt also designed the Golf course Fontana, host of the Austrian Open for many years and believes that Pannonia is still the best course in Hungary.
