Austria, Group of friends, 7 nights

If you are looking for something special, The K Club Gold is the place for you!

It's difficult where to start and where to stop! In the end it's quite simple, it was a dream!!!
Hotel, staff, rooms, breakfast, food in the restaurants and the 2 golf courses are simply 5 star level. The staff practically treated us like royalty, the bags were ready at the course every day, the 2 courses are in an incredible, great, well-maintained condition. We stayed 7 nights and played 8 times, we just couldn't get enough. Totally cooperative regarding changes to the starting time, it was possible without any problems. Since we played at around 9:00 a.m. every day, we were alone on the course (private place feeling). Very, very good food in the club restaurants, excellent in the hotel - very classy.

Great Days at the K Club

The absolute highlight of the trip all around - despite the size of the hotel, such personal service from all employees.

Ryder Cup place great, others also very good. Would come again!

Germany, Group of friends, 5 nights

K-Club North and the Palmer Restaurant are must-plays and must-visits.

K-Club South in the bunkers extremely many stones and unkempt. Both pro shops in the K-Club are poorly equipped and there are no e-trolleys because the batteries were stolen.
