This par-72 course plays at 7240 yards from the championship tees and has forward tees at 6246 yards so you have great options for golfers of all levels. Now coming to the end of its first decade, this resort has very quickly gained a name for itself as one of Europe’s best new golfing destinations. Albatross Golf Club recently became part of the prestigious European Tour Properties portfolio and joins some of Europe’s most celebrated golf resorts.
A real premium is put on accuracy at Albatross Golf Club especially in the summer months when the rough can become really punishing. The large water hazards are pleasing on the eye and add character to the course with the large rust coloured stones that line them. They are, of course, to be avoided. One of the most common things you will hear about this course is how good the greens are. When the tour stops here it is always something that the players mention during the week.
The course saves its best for last with an incredible finishing hole. With a burn running up the right-hand side of the fairway and a lake protecting the other side, you better hold your nerve from the tee. The lake also helps protect the large green but can draw your eye as you hit your approach shot.

Sitting beside the twelfth tee is one of the most spectacular features on the resort. The sleek and modern clubhouse has a great restaurant and bar so you can enjoy a delicious meal after your round. The eating area overlooks the course so you can recall your best shots of the day whilst you dine. There is also a large terrace for enjoying the sunshine a little more after your golf. The pro shop is a real treat and is the perfect place to stock-up on anything you need before you tee it up. Here you can also arrange a golf cart or trolley if you would like one.
If you are stopping by for a few days then you should take advantage of the facilities at The David Carter Golf Academy. This comprehensive golf school is perfect for getting some tuition on your game then developing your skills further. The practice area is close to the clubhouse and the first tee so fits perfectly with the flow of getting ready for your round and then getting warmed-up before you get to the first.
Not many have had the pleasure of playing golf in the Czech Republic but with new courses like Albatross coming along, more and more will make this trip. This is deservedly regarded as one of the best new courses in Europe and one that should certainly be on your list of courses to play soon.
