18-HOLE BIRD COURSE
GENTLE WATER AND BROAD FAIRWAYS
Pure golf pleasure in the heart of the picturesque Waldviertel!
Two small creeks and idyllic natural ponds form the special character of the 18-hole-championship-golf course at the Diamond Club Ottenstein. The course guarantees variety and full-grown beauties, open meadows, dense forests and hilly landscapes. The top maintained course pleases with its diversified design and the wonderful location. The Diamond Club Ottenstein represents a harmonic and atmospheric holiday and free-time experience in one of Austria’s most beautiful golf regions.
Golf has been played at the first nine holes of the Diamond Club Ottenstein – designed by architect Keith Preston – already from the year 1991. 1995 the second nine holes – this time designed by architect Hans-Georg Erhardt – were added. The top-maintained 18-hole bird course offers some very memorable holes, six greens with water obstacle and pleases every golf heart with its varied design and its wonderful location.
Kids are free to play on our 18-hole course until the age of 14.
