Golf hotels in Vorarlberg

The golf hotels in Vorarlberg combine personal and friendly hospitality with internationally renowned standards and offer a great variety of services. Off the beautiful Vorarlberg golf courses, each golf hotel provides its own kaleidoscope of sporty activities, cultural events and culinary highlights.


Vorarlberg golf hotels and their golf services

All golf hotels in Vorarlberg offer their guests convenient greenfee rates at their partnering golf clubs as well as a 20 percent greenfee discount at any of the other golf courses in Vorarlberg.
The Vorarlberg Golf Weeks and the tournaments run by the golf hotels are organised with great attention to detail and are always worth the trip!


Great diversity in a small space

Variety is the hallmark of the Vorarlberg golf region.

The 6 golf courses and more than 20 golf hotels in Vorarlberg offer many interesting combinations for your golfing vacation. Furthermore, the Vorarlberg landscape spans Mediterranean flair on Lake Constance in the northwest and rugged Alpine sceneries at more than 3000 metres above sea level in the southeast – all within a beeline distance of 70 km.
Cable cars, museums, shipping on Lake Constance, many prestigious cultural events as well as exciting projects in architecture and culture are just some of the things that make this region a very special place for your golfing vacation.


Flat golf courses in Vorarlberg

Of course, Golf in Vorarlberg includes Alpine golfing – but that’s not all!

The modern 18-hole golf facility of the Montfort-Rankweil golf park offers slightly modulated, but otherwise completely flat fairways in the Rhine Valley, eliminating any difficulties caused by uneven grounds. To make up for that, a few water hazards may give pause to the players. Another eye-catcher at the Montfort-Rankweil golf park is the modern club house and restaurant with a splendid public terrace.
The Montafon GC also offers surprisingly flat fairways surrounded by lusciously green Alpine foothills with an impressive view of high summits in the background. It is the oldest golf course in Vorarlberg and incidentally comprises the longest fairway in the Vorarlberg golf region, extending for 542 metres (from the yellow tee boxes).


Alpine golfing fun in Vorarlberg

While the Vorarlberg golf region also features flat golf facilities, your golfing vacation will be mostly about golf courses embedded so perfectly into the Alpine landscape that it almost seems as if they had always been there.

The Alpin Golf Brand GC, for instance, sells T-shirts that say “Anybody can play a flat course!”. On this golf course, in particular, you won’t have any problems as long as you stay on the fairway. But if you focus only on your score at the Alpin Golf Brand, Bludenz Braz and Lech-Arlberg GCs, you might miss what Alpine golfing is all about: spectacular natural landscapes and mountain sceneries as far as the eye can see!


Enjoy spectacles of nature while golfing in Vorarlberg

Do you know any other golf courses where you may see red deer, roe deer and marmots at the edge of the fairway? Due to its idyllic location in the Zugertal valley, the Lech GC offers a chance of extraordinary encounters with the local fauna – especially in the mornings.


Golfing at the highest level

At an altitude of 1500 metres above sea level, the Lech-Arlberg GC is the most highly elevated golf course in Austria. You will notice how the reduced atmospheric pressure will make your golf balls travel even farther than in the valley. So, why not hold a longest drive contest in Lech?


Top-level golfing vacations

The level of quality for golfing vacations in Vorarlberg is as high as the region’s topography.

Many of Vorarlberg’s golf hotels also belong to the most exclusive winter sports resorts in Europe. These hotels offer incomparable, world-class infrastructure and services to golfing guests in summer. Did you know that Lech has the world’s greatest density of award-winning gourmet restaurants? As experts for golfing vacations in Austria, we can also recommend extraordinary hotels for golfers, gourmets, spa and relaxation enthusiasts as well as families in many other golf areas in Vorarlberg, such as the Bregenzerwald region, the Brandnertal and Montafon valleys or the area around Bludenz.


Culture in Vorarlberg

Culture here goes beyond the presentation of centuries-old buildings and works of art. The local workshops and creative artists are open to new developments and love to experiment with modern styles. This pioneering spirit can be felt throughout the province.

During your golfing vacation in the Bregenzerwald region, for instance, you will marvel not only at the beautiful local architecture but also at the bus stops in Krumbach, which were designed by young international artists and built by local workshops.

In the Alpine region surrounding Bludenz, the Muttersberg mountain becomes an open-air gallery. In Lech you can visit the Skyspace-Lech art installation, the Philosophicum and also the recently opened Literaricum Lech.

For world-class musical performances we recommend the Bregenz Festival or the Schubertiade concert series.

To add to your special vacation experience in Vorarlberg, you can visit the many museums and exhibitions displaying the province’s typical local costumes (such as the Montafoner Tracht), local life, art and handicraft (e.g. Werkraum Bregenzerwald) as well as Vorarlberg’s agricultural traditions.

Or you could be swimming in a heated outdoor pool at 1700 metres above sea level, surrounded by flowering mountain meadows and a majestic mountain scenery. Or resting in the relaxation area after a sauna session while watching the golfers on the golf course opposite the spa. Fresh air, quiet surroundings, clear spring water from the tap and attentive hosts included! This is what a golfing and spa vacation in Vorarlberg feels like.

Golf hotels on the golf course in Vorarlberg

For many vacationers, the location of their golf hotel makes all the difference.

There are as many as three golf hotels on the Alpin Golf Brand GC. At the Valavier Aktivresort and the Golfhotel Sarotla, the golf course lies right outside the front door. Guests who are swimming in the pool or dining on the terrace can watch the golfers on the opposite green. The Hotel Garni Tannleger is in a convenient, central location and still within walking distance (about the length of a par 4) from the golf course. And if you are staying at the Walch’s Rote Wand Gourmet Hotel and are feeling like playing a round of golf, the Lech-Arlberg GC is just a par 5 away.


Family golfing vacations in Vorarlberg

The Montafon and Brandnertal valleys as well as Lech am Arlberg are great destinations for a family golfing vacation.

The golf courses are close by, golf lessons for the whole family are being offered and there are so many activities to discover off the green that all family members will thoroughly enjoy themselves. At the Sporthotel Beck, for instance, kids can ride horses, try archery, go swimming in natural lakes, participate in exciting excursions and discover many further activities offered in the region. Themed nature walks and adventure hikes are a great way for the whole family to explore the enchanting natural surroundings.


Golfing and mountains in Vorarlberg

Golfers are hardly known as ardent hikers, at least not off the green.

But sometimes the view is most beautiful from the top. Use the region’s many cable cars to get a new perspective of things! The golf hotels presented here will be glad to suggest excursions to the most beautiful places in Vorarlberg, including the Lünersee lake in the Brandnertal valley, the Steinernes Meer plateau on the Arlberg mountain or the high moor around the Weigensee lake in the Montafon valley. We recommend creating wonderful, lasting memories during your golfing vacation by exploring the many great activities offered in this golf region, such as a hike to see the sunset in the Brandnertal valley or a night of watching shooting stars at 2350 metres above sea level.


A golfing destination that is easy to reach

Its strategic position between Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Germany makes Austria’s westernmost province ideal for a spontaneous golf weekend. Bregenz is only 120 km from Zurich, 180 km from Munich and about 200 km from Stuttgart, which makes this very special golf destination even more appealing for guests from neighbouring countries.
