When Schloss Pichlarn was opened as a 5-star hotel in 1972, it was also the founding year of the new Golf & Country Club Schloss Pichlarn. As was customary at the time, the new golf course was designed as a 9-hole golf course.

Even then, the magnificent landscape surrounding the golf course and its interesting course layout were the most striking features of the new golf course.

The golf course was the second golf course to be built in Styria, making it one of the most traditional golf courses in Austria. In the beginning, the facility was mainly used by hotel guests.

Extension 1985

Following the changes of the times, it was decided in the 1980s to expand the golf course to an 18-hole golf course. In 1985, the expansion and redesign was celebrated with a grand opening party.

High-ranking guests were invited, including former German President Walter Scheel. An enthusiastic golfer himself, Scheel opened the new golf course with a golden golf ball, as “Der Ennstaler” reported.

Also invited to the opening was Bernhard Langer, the first German to win the US Masters and number 1 in the world golf rankings. At the Schloss Pichlarn golf course, he set a course record of 65 strokes, which could not be broken for 25 years.

Bernhard Langer’s presence at Schloss Pichlarn and his course record made the

Golf & Country Club Schloss Pichlarn

known beyond the borders of the country.
