Austria: Carinthia

From the Alps to the Adriatic: With the Alpe-Adria-Golf Card – you can play golf from the southern side of the Alps to the Adriatic Sea...

Carinthia, Austria's southernmost province, is known not only for carefree holidays at warm bathing lakes and as a destination for the nature lovers who enjoy life while hiking and cycling. With 12 attractive golf courses, Carinthia is also a paradise for everyone who has fallen in love with the auld game.

Every one of those dozen courses has its own air and attracts players with its own special challenges. Most of them are characterised by magnificent views of the mountains and their proximity to at least one of the picturesque bathing lakes. There are no limits to the variety you can experience in just one day of your holiday. In spring, it is even possible to ski and play golf on the same day.

And what is especially appealing about gol ng in Carinthia is the Carinthian Alps-Adriatic cuisine with regional and seasonal specialities such as Carinthian Käsnudel (stuffed pasta pockets) or Carinthian Laxn (lake trout).

Alpe-Adria-Golf Card

An additional attraction of a gol ng holiday in Carinthia is the cross-border Alpe-Adria- Golf Card, which covers the whole Alps- Adriatic region (Austria, Italy, Slovenia). This means you can use Carinthia as a base for gol ng all year round. In just one holiday, golfers can get to know three countries, three cultures and three culinary traditions. Ten Carinthian golf clubs and almost 40 hotels are partner establishments of the Alpe- Adria-Golf Card, and many other golf courses in Italy and Slovenia complete the golf experience down to the Adriatic Sea. It's even possible to visit all three countries in a single golfing day.

Golf with your dog

The Golfpark Klopeiner See-Southern Carinthia is known not only for its long season (from at least March to November) but also for its hospitality towards dogs.

Dogs are also welcome at Moosburg and Velden-Köstenberg (€10 charge) and in Bad Kleinkirchheim and Nassfeld Golf (free of charge on both).

Carinthian Alpe-Adria cuisine and Slow Food

In Carinthia it's not all about golf. Here, cuisine also plays an important role, much to all golfers' delight. In every corner of Carinthia, you will nd culinary specialities and a focus on regional products. Old recipes are re-discovered and culinary treasures created in harmony with nature.

The key thing is that mother nature and her valuable resources are treated with care. Sustainability is encouraged and the diversity of regional tastes is allowed to unfold. What began three years ago with the first worldwide Slow Food Travel Destination in the Gailtal and Lesachtal valleys, has slowly spread across the whole of Carinthia.

Not to be forgotten with all the Carinthian delicacies are the in uences of our southern neighbours, Italy and Slovenia, from which the unique Carinthian Alps- Adriatic cuisine has emerged, guaranteeing borderless moments of indulgence.
