as a golf course ....
Optimal transport connections with three motorway exits and the direct proximity to Vienna-Schwechat Airport and the center of Vienna make FONTANA easy to reach. Through continuous improvements on and around the course, combined with the highest quality standards, FONTANA is to develop into one of the top 10 golf courses in Europe. In the clubhouse there is a restaurant, a pro shop and a private fitness and wellness area, which is supplemented in summer by the in-house swimming lake with a sandy beach.
The demanding but fair course, with numerous bunkers and water hazards, is one of the top golf courses in Austria. Regularly changing pin positions mean that there are always new challenges on the year-round fast greens. The 18-hole championship course hosted the European Tour in Austria from 2006 to 2009.
The course is extremely demanding, 104 bunkers, including some classic Scottish pot bunkers with meter-high bunker edges and 13 fairways with water - make every golfer's heart beat faster. This is not the only reason why the Fontana Golf Club is one of my absolute favorite courses in Austria.
We open with a par 4 dogleg left, don't try to shorten too much, it's not worth it at the beginning. Attention the green is very undulating. In general, one has to say at GC Fontana that the grass around the greens is extremely thick. So better hit the green. Hole 2 a par 5, water comes into play for the first time - first to the right along the fairway, then the water crosses the fairway approx. 100 m in front of the green. Hole 3 is a more harmless par 4, while hole 4 (par 3, 158m) really gets down to business again. Better not leave your tee shot too short! We continue with a par 4, a double dogleg left, right, along the fairway to the left is a huge bunker landscape. Precision from the tea is required! Hole 6 is a par 4 with a large pot bunker on the right in front of the green. Hole 7 is then a beautiful long 170 meter par 3, which is accompanied by a pond on the left. Hole 8 a par 4 is the most difficult hole on the course. Don't play it too aggressively, preferably along the fairway, then you should run out of par. At the end of the first nine another par 4. Beware of the green, there are two very deep bunkers.
Hole 10 is an almost 400 meter long par 4, a slight dogleg left, the green is defended by a bunker at the front and water at the back. The tee on hole 11, a short par 3 with a small green, requires precision. That is defended with four bunkers. Hole 12 is a par 4 that should be approached strategically. Shortening too much across the water is not worth it. A small piece of wood is also sufficient on hole 13 to play in the kink of the dogleg on the right. The 14 is a rather long par 4. Before it really starts, a par 5 of the 15 that can be reached with two good strokes. This is followed by hole 16 a par 4, dogleg left, the entire left side is accompanied by a pond up to the green. The par 3 17 is certainly the signature hole in Fontana, it leads from an elevated tee over a pond. My absolute favorite hole, the 18, a spectacular par 5. From the tee, you go over the swimming pond. The brave attack the green with two strokes, otherwise you play two strokes again over the water to the 100 meter marker. Now you should be able to take a deep breath, even if blow three still has to sit in the wind. A wonderful final hole, but that can push the whole score up again.
Let yourself be pampered with culinary delights and enjoy the breathtaking atmosphere and the unique view of the turquoise lake. FONTANA is a passionate host and serves you selected regional delicacies at the highest level. End a wonderful day of golf with a cigar and a good glass of wine in our cigar lounge - feel at home!
We look forward to your visit, whether you are a golfer or not!
