Golfing on Arlberg
Top enjoyment in great company
125 years ago, Pastor Johann Müller from Warth imported the first pair of skis from Scandinavia and started swooping down the slopes of the Tannberg between Warth, Schröcken and Lech. Others soon followed; mostly schoolchildren from the region who built their own skis from barrel planks. They popularised the new way of getting about, and a legend was born. Ever since, skiing has been closely connected with Arlberg and has made the region world famous.
Yet Arlberg is a popular destination for visitors from all over the world not only in winter. From spring to autumn, lush vegetation blossoms and flourishes in the mountainscape in all colours, shapes and fragrances. Nature lovers and pleasure-seekers travel here from far and wide to relax, go hiking, spend time with loved ones, or improve their golfing handicap. Golfing on Arlberg – the fascination of the Alps in winter & summer.
Alpine golf clubs in Vorarlberg & Tyrol
Over the past few decades, three excellent golf courses have developed around Arlberg. Surrounded by unique mountain scenery, you can tee off here from May to October. Play on gentle hills, in green valleys, between leafy woods and over gushing rivers. Golfers can round off a successful day’s putting with great company in the club restaurant, or enjoy drinks in the Halfway Haus. Beginners and advanced players can choose between two 9-hole and one 18-hole course as well as practicing on various driving ranges.
It takes just 30 to 60 minutes from Schröcken or Warth to travel in comfort either by car or in the private golf shuttle to the courses in Lech, St. Anton or Ausserbraz.
