ST WOLFGANG GOLF COURSE UTTLAU designed by Kurt Rossknecht
Peace and quiet over the hills surrounding the small village of Uttlau near Bad Griesbach, 18 holes in enchanting nature – this is a truly excellent place to golf.
This course unites all of the aspects that make playing golf so appealing. The St Wolfgang Golf Course Uttlau has something to offer every golfer. Take a bit of flat land, a couple of hills (not too high, yet with a lovely view of the countryside) add a splash of water and decorate it all with fruit trees and a small village at the centre. In a countryside much like an idyllic Bavarian post card, the golf course architect Kurt Rossknecht beautifully integrated the course into its surroundings. The village remains in view with its Uttlau Estate where its gorgeous courtyard awaits for a welcome celebration after playing a round.
However, there are a diverse 18 holes to be played before the courtyard becomes relevant. Sportsmanship and fair play were the driving forces behind the design. Flat holes, sloped fairways, long shots into the valley and water hazards – the course beautifully unites them all. Extensive greens that require a certain talent in putting also distinguish the course.
Take in the beautiful view of the rolling countryside – however without forgetting to play to par, for example on hole 12 with its par 5 where you drive the ball from the highest point of the course. The final hole (also an interesting par 5) will take you right back to Uttlau – alongside its church, cemetery and estate. By the end of the round, you too will understand why this area is so often called the “Bavarian Tuscany”.
