A golf holiday
The most beautiful golf courses in the Mostviertel region around Schloss THALHEIM
Every region and landscape has its merits and unique attractions. And golfers really appreciate this – particularly in the area surrounding Vienna and St. Pölten. Golf is one of those sports that has an intensive relationship with the surrounding nature and associated conditions.
This area of Lower Austria's Mostviertel region close to the Danube is dominated by picturesque hills, hilltops covered with forests, lush fields and pastures and overall a vast expanse of scenery. It is therefore perfect for unpacking your golf clubs and getting to know the region's most stunning golf courses "swing by swing" during your holiday at Schloss THALHEIM. Or the other way round: finish a day at the golf club of your choice with a gourmet dinner at Schloss THALHEIM and stay a little longer for a holiday at our hotel.
Neulengbach Golf Club – natural and nearby
The Neulengbach golf club is situated in a very special region of the Mostviertel – the so-called "Elsbeerland". The name "Elsbeere" (engl. service tree) is derived from an ancient cultivated fruit that grows on wonderfully gnarled trees, exceptionally well and densely here around Neulengbach. It's therefore not surprising that they would and could avoid excessive, massive changes to the site when designing the Neulengbach golf club whose 9-hole course is situated on the edge of the Haspel Forest. Instead the young Neulengbach GC scores with its extremely natural setting that was also build in accordance with ecological criteria as far as possible. Other features worth mentioning are the informal atmosphere and family-friendly design with innovative additional programmes on offer. The Neulengbach golf club is easy to reach for you as a holiday guest as it's just 9.5 kilometres away from Schloss THALHEIM.
Diamond Country Club Atzenbrugg – with Academy
As the name already says: a really magnificent course awaits you here – in fact a Diamond Resort.

St. Pölten Golf Club – golfing in the capital of Lower Austria
The St. Pölten-Goldegg course built in 1988 was taken over by the GC 2000 Group in 2006 and converted into a highly modern 27-hole golf course. The showpiece and at the same time the home course of the GC St. Pölten is the beautifully situated Park Course with 18 holes and par 72, which offers fantastic views of the foothills of the Alps and whose fairways are partly located in the idyllic castle park. The 9-hole Castle Course (par 60) is the jewel among Austria's short courses. Like its big brother, the Park Course, the Castle Course provides breathtaking views over the alpine foothills (in particular from the 8th tee, the course's highest point) and over the idyllic Goldegg Castle. The practice facilities in St. Pölten offer the best conditions for perfecting your game. In the spacious and partly covered driving range you can practise long drives onto real target greens. Very close by is the chipping and pitching area with its own green and large sand bunker to develop a perfect feeling for the all deciding short game. Introductory golf sessions are offered with experienced golfers and loaned equipment on the first Sunday of every month from May to October. So if you want to discover the golfer in youror simply give them free rein during your holiday at the Schloss THALHEIM hotel, the St. Pölten golf club is the first choice for you.

Magnificent design, great location in the Ramsau region – the Adamstal Golf Club has already been awarded Austria's Golf Course of the Year five times by an expert jury, continuously ranks in the Top 2 most popular golf courses in Europe and has belonged to the Leading Golf Courses since 2002. The trip of roughly 40 kilometres from Schloss THALHEIM is therefore definitely worth it. Because as a guest at the Adamstal Golf Club you also have the choice between the 18-hole Championship Course and the 9-hole Wallerbach Course. All 27 holes have their own unique character: the designer Jeff Howes managed to skilfully integrate streams and terraces, forest clearings and rock formations into the impressive landscape.

Thanks to the up to five tees per hole the course is nevertheless fair for players of all abilities. One more bonus: both courses are suitable for e-carts – as a challenge should also be enjoyable.
