Imagine playing golf against a background of apple orchards in bloom with snow-capped mountains in the distance. Too good to be true? In South Tyrol, this kind of scenario is no exception and is indeed quite normal. The two golf courses in the vicinity of the Hotel das stachelburg lie in a beautiful, lush landscape. The 9-hole Lana golf course in lies in a picture-postcard setting beneath the ruins of the Brandis Castle looking out over the Etschtal Valley. The idyllic setting of the magnificently landscaped 18-hole Passeier.Meran golf course, will even delight more seasoned players.
And if that isn’t enough then try the Blue Monster in Appiano/Eppan or the Carezza Golf Club on Lake Carezza, also known as the Mountain Beast. Just beyond the Deutschnonsberg mountains across the provincial border with Trento, the Dolomiti Golf Club in Sarnonico boasts a golf course at the highest elevation in the entire Alpine region.
