Inordinate driveway and lackluster course

I played at this golf course with some friends and was not impressed not one bit. There is so much chatter in Austrian circles that this is the best golf course in Austria, but I beg to differ and for many reasons.

1. This Trump like entrance to this golf course was a inordinate in many ways. The man made lakes and cookie cutter homes along the course underscore the designers penchant for bad design and inspiration.

2. Unlike Adamstal and Schloss Schonborn, Fontana is not in cadence with its surrounding. This golf course is in the middle of nowhere, a secluded warehouse area which leaves very little appeal. Perhaps they have taken a page from Disney's book in how to develop areas.

3. Construction on the course while playing! Need I say more?

4. Over priced and with poor service at restaurant. I am sorry, but this course pales in comparison to say Penati in terms of quality and price.

The reviews on this golf course are very accurate! Three words that come to mind when describing this course: cheap, pretentious and lack luster.

Highly overrated

Let me start my review with saying “Not as good as expected, definetely not no. 1 for me in Austria” . Course layout is nothing special, few nice holes, like 17 and 18. Maintenance was very good, would say perfect, but. Course is next quite busy roads. Now there are new holes construction ongoing so many GUR and also movement of cars, so charging 140 Eur is a bit out of mind. Ok we got free towel and birdie book, but there is not much info in it. Restaurant was bit slow even it was not full. I would definetely not come soon for such a value I know where to spend my money in Austria. Once again this is my personal opinion, however I been traveling around golfcourses and can compare.

Has lost its shine

Basically, of course, the look of the clubhouse and space is impressive!
Range in perfect condition, super friendly reception in the secretariat, caddy master also very polite and the lady on the halfway just great. Marshall explains the new game management in a very friendly manner and is always there on the pitch!
The place is of course perfect from the maintenance condition, but the current game management is simply bad due to the renovation. Construction site noise and dust included! Long ways, chaotic confusion at the tees. Sometimes you go head-on to the next tee and are in danger of being shot down by the flight. A double green on holes 10 and 11, which is played through two carelessly laid out fairways.
The highlight are certainly the lanes 17 and 18 with the look of the clubhouse.
Subsequent food in the clubhouse was of the quality okay, but nothing more!
We will definitely come back, but not before 2022, when the renovation should be completed. The standard of the restaurant in 2022 may also be back to the level that one expects from such a location.
All in all, it was still a nice day of golf, although there are better courses in Austria at the moment.

Space suffers from the renovation

First: The condition is still great, the new fairways are not bad.

But: The two most beautiful tracks (17 and 18) are missing. The track is chaotic, long ways, partly back towards the tee. Overall, therefore, a kind of strange, inharmonious golfing experience.

To ask for the full green fee is a joke. Since I can easily call 5 plants in Lower Austria, which offer a better golf experience and are not so outrageously expensive (Himberg, Atzenbrugg, Adamstal, Schömborn, Ebreichsdorf).

You can definitely evaluate that only when the conversion is completed, but currently for the bidding completely overpriced.

Still good

The conversion was a new place, the layout is a bit narrower and on the back 9, the paths are sometimes very long and inharmonious, but the round is interresant, varied and not easy. Since all 18 fairways are being redesigned, you will have to live with the rebuild for a few years, but you will not notice anything on the lap. The clubhouse / restaurant is stylishly decorated beautifully, unfortunately not really comfortable. The food is again very good and the terrace unique.
All in all, perfect for a golf day.

GC rip-off

Excited and with great anticipation, the GC Fontana was visited. The driveway seemed to be a taste of what you get offered for 155 euros green fee. First disappointment - there is no birdie book, teas, markers or anything else for the money! Also, no information that the place is rebuilt and therefore no golf clock works. But that does not, because there are no distance markers on the side and you absolutely do not know how far it is. By chance, we found out that on the sprinkler cover distances are available! Have fun looking for the sprinkler lid! The description boards are always only in the men's tees, where you as a lady but sometimes not even come by. Grandious is also the description for Tee 11 - on the way from the 10 you stand on a crossroads where it is absolutely unclear where to go and which fairway is right across the street. However, you can also see it as a 'wink of fate' if you mistakenly play the 17 and the disaster ends. The high Raff is not even worth a note... Why this club believes that something special to me is completely mistaken - the place is loud, not very appealing, bad signposted.
Our conclusion: once and never again - if you want to destroy money, they are right here!

What did you expect? At least not that!

The advertising slogan "not only golfing makes your heart beat faster" is perfect - just not as the club would like it to be.
At the time of the reservation we were not told that three lanes will be rebuilt and on the course 6 the ball may only be played by the tee.
This was communicated to us only with the registration. Furthermore, were square workers with noisy leaf blowers to work. Other workers were working in the ditch, while we were waiting at the tee to see if they would move aside (did not care). Partly in the bunkers the film was visible and the sand was missing. The greens were dull and extremely slow. The handle of the lending trolley was constantly saying goodbye, because he did not hold. At a tee, the board was missing at the tee. At a track all have played from the same tee.

Pity for this wasted day!

Top spot around Vienna - currently busy construction activity

The GC Fontana is within easy reach of Vienna. The course is very challenging in terms of length, so it is advisable in the office to ask for the tee recommendation (orange, red, blue, yellow or white). Currently, there is a lot of building activity on the site because of the redesign which will be completed from 2019. Practice area adequate, very nice halfway house and large restaurant and office area. Shortcoming: no dogs allowed at the place!

Are we in Florida?

Even in the driveway one imagines in Florida. The clubhouse is imposing and you are very friendly.

The fairways are beautiful and the greens are simply class. The layout is challenging and all holes are exciting. Again, you feel like you are in Florida. We played on a very hot day. The place is nevertheless in an excellent condition.

The price is safe in the higher range but it is justified. We would come back.

Great, but expensive place

American golf course near Vienna, very well maintained, great holes, beautiful clubhouse, very good Sacher-sausage at Halfwayhouse - what more could you want.

Layout of the individual play areas very varied, beautiful and fast greens, however a heavy place.

Very good but expensive

The entire facility is very impressive:

Access, clubhouse, practice facilities, all the best.

Also in the square state one can only say, great!

The holes are varied, hard but fair. The last two holes at the lake are fantastic.

The staff was very friendly and competent.

Not so great I found the disturbing traffic noise to four or five holes. The usual distance markers yellow and red I missed. Next tea could sometimes be better identified. That the water was not marked with yellow and red (no pegs or color) should not happen, certainly not in the price range.

The price is excessive. Great Place, in the best case. But fo r me there alone in northeast some nicer places (Adamstal, Schönborn, Himberg ...).

But all in all it was a great day of golf. but coming back I'll only if I can play on favorable terms (eg, Sunset in low season).

US Golf meet a host of KuK

An incredibly well-kept sophisticated landscaped golf course. The quality of the fairways surpassed the Greens many other golf courses.
For me, something was missing naturalness in connection with the landscape but it seems to be probably in US courts. The clubhouse and its audience exuded KuK atmosphere. (In any case, are of German, the styling as Magister and Hr. DI not used). After the game you can from the changing rooms to the bathing terrace out and swim in the clean lake to go, which is also water hazard at the same time. That was what.
One place you necessarily even once! should have played.
Also to judging can what is possible and whether it applies to your own taste.
The price was of course correspondingly outstanding.

Excellent

The course was presented in excellent condition. He rewards it very, a little play strategically. The Birdiebook there where yet extremely handsome green fee of 155 € on weekends for free. My 12 year old son got to play green fee free. A very beautifully landscaped parkland course with plenty of water, beautiful undulating fairways and greens that absolutely stopped the track at medium speed (about 9). Holes 17 and 18 are surely anyone who has played it once, always remember!

Beautiful, well-kept place, but expensive Comparatively

Friendly service, super well-kept place, not too heavy, healthy base length required by yellow, good driving range, great Halfwayhaus, clubhouse is too pretentious and fits architecturally rather in the Austro-Hungarian period. Minus point for the non-existent birdiebook. Come probably, despite the very high green fees again.

Very good, but expensive

The place was last week in excellent condition. The Vorgrüns are in better condition than the greens on some other place and invite you to actually putting. The course architecture I liked very much, also some very deep bunker found my consent. The place is certainly not very difficult to play, but you should be of yellow already fairly long (190m carry), otherwise rather play of blue.
For normal green fee I would not play again, that's me then too expensive, but I had a coupon and have fun on the court.

Very American

It expects a great clubhouse with a magnificent terrace overlooking the spectacular 18 hole. Certainly a highlight of this place. The course maintenance is outstanding. The facility is well maintained, which speaks for the Green Keeper. Use to play the holes could have been more varied.

We played Sunset, as this dream place costs only € 67.50!

But the 135, - € Fontana is worth it!

For the price

Are there any exciting places! I still do not understand that Fontana to be the best golf course in Austria. The holes are mostly nice, but not spectacular, but prices already. Unfortunately there are also many members who play slowly and never let play through, although already 3-4 holes are free from them. Course maintenance is excellent for sure, but the ambience in the restaurant is indeed noble but not cozy. I've played 8-10 times in Fontana, but either at the invitation or on the Leading Golf Card. The price performance ratio is not great for me.

Nobel

Golf: A top-kept place. In the first nine holes one finds rather wide driving areas. On the back nine, it becomes a bit narrower. Wide reductions of tea are certainly of great advantage. The slightly shorter tracks are very well guarded around the greens. Plenty of water and many bunkers!

Place Condition: Excellent.

Other: Nice short game practice area.

Conclusion: A round is worth it. To hole 17 and 18, it is almost a little cheesy - turquoise blue water, white sand beaches. I could happily use a quote, I think the regular prices already borderline.

Very fine

I had the pleasure to play the space in may.
1 the staff: all very friendly and accommodating 2 driving range: there are better 3 the tracks: very well maintained, very short cut fairways, greens top, not easy to play due to the water obstacles and bunkers 4 analgesic: park-like, for me, a little too artificial but very well maintained!
5 Conclusion: at least you should have played once this space.

Best Golf Club

Again had to play this course a few days before the pleasure.
The clubhouse is on the outside and inside a beautiful sight and especially clean. Secretary and manager were very friendly and helpful. All other staff were equally friendly.
The place was in an Excellent condition. The fairways mowed for me something very short, but got used to it after a few holes in it. The greens are very undulating and fast, although my playing partner, a member who said it on this day were a little slower than usual.
Restaurant was excellent and not so extremely overpriced as I thought previously also in top condition and the food.
The green fee is very high, but in my opinion you get for club and also a very neat place.
Beautiful was a day of golf and is definitely worth a visit.

An experience

To play the course, is an experience. Top neat, interesting and sometimes difficult holes characterize the place Potbunker also come into play, obstacles make the course a challenge that is realized in the extremely fast greens. Backspin is required. A good result is difficult, but not impossible. Unfortunately, too high-priced green fees. A typical course in American style.

Has been better...

Yes he should be the best of Austria, he is still very good, to me he is "artificial", the amerkianische style is not for everyone.
Price is too high for me, so it is played only once a year.
Yes, and he was ever better cared for...

Too expensive bit, but for repeat

Yes, there's nothing to complain about. You can even afford it yourself, but if the woman wants with... and ALWAYS WILL, it will probably have to stay at the one time.

Is just a place where the precious layer can keep to themselves... also must be yes ;-)
