A new 18-hole / par 72 championship golf course, Kitzbüheler Alpen Westendorf, opens on May 9 in the Austrian Tirol.  In celebration of superlative Austrian golf and gourmet cuisine Relais & Châteaux Rosengarten, one of Austria’s finest hotel-restaurants, is launching an inaugural tournament, the Premier Rosengarten Gourmet Golf Trophy (Thursday May 29 to Sunday June 1).

Quietly located in an idyllic mountain setting at an altitude of 780m, Kitzbüheler Alpen Westendorf golf course lies just outside the village of Westendorf, 15 minutes from the Rosengarten’s home in Kirchberg.  The par 72 championship course stretches to 5920 m (6470 yds) with five par 5s, eight par 4s and five par 3s running through gently undulating walkable terrain ideal for golf, with a lake beside the clubhouse adding spice to the 9th and 18th holes for both players and spectators.  The club has a self-contained driving range and chipping green, well designed for practice and an unobtrusive natural look.  The south facing aspect makes the most of the Westendorf plateau’s luxuriant forest and mountain backdrop.  As an official hotel partner, the Rosengarten offers guests reduced green fees, beginner/proficiency courses, three-hour golf taster courses on Sundays and preferential trial membership rates.  

The new course reinforces Kitzbühel’s status as the golf centre of the Alps. There are now five strong courses in the immediate vicinity of Kirchberg offering diversity of terrain, well-kept greens, lush fairways and an enjoyable sporting challenge for all standards of golfer in a magnificent Alpine setting.  Within a 100 km radius, there are 30 more excellent golf courses to discover.
