Welcome to the 46th IGFR European Championship
Dear Fellow Rotarians and partners,
The Organizing Committee is very pleased to invite you to attend the 46th IGFR European Championship which will be held from June 29th till July 2020 in Kitzbühel (Austria).
In the alpine centre of golf, the old and traditional alpine town of Kitzbühel offers you some of Austria’s most beautiful golf courses. You will be inspired by the 18 hole courses of Schwarzsee and Eichenheim which are surrounded by the fascinating mountain Iandscape of the Tirol. You will play on the lush green fairways with breath-taking alpine views. Enjoy the Austrian hospitality with a snack in a mountain chalet or during the evening festivities. Combine a stroll through the picturesque old town of Kitzbühel with some leisurely shopping.
Look forward to an exciting and highly varied round of golf against the backdrop of unrivalled panoramic views on a golf course with carefully maintained fairways and greens which are guaranteed to delight any golfer. The golf club was named 2016 Golf Club of the Year by Golf in Austria.
Built in 1987 and opened in 1989, the course played host to the European Challenge Tour for the first time in 2003. Whatever your handicap, all golfers can enjoy diverse playing conditions on expansive fair ways which provide the perfect opportunity for hitting good drives. Walk up to the 15th green to reach the cour- se’s highest point, where you will be rewarded with breathtaking views of the Wilder Kaiser and the Kitzhüheler Horn mountains. Another unique feature of the course is the par-3,16th hole, which is known as the „Mausefalle“ or „Mousetrap“ and which has to be played across a small ravine.
The Eichenheim golf course is one of the most outstanding in Austria. Nestled in the picturesque surroundings off Kitzbühel and designed by the American architect Kyle Phillips, it presents a demanding and unforgettable golfing challenge.
Opened in 2001 the 6,092 metre, par 71 course winds its way past sheer rock faces and dense deciduous woodland. lt is these varied surroundings that make Eichenheim such a brilliant cour- se. The awe-inspiring Wilder Kaiser and Hohe Tauern moun- tains with their majestic crags, deep gorges and snowy peaks form a breathtaking hackdrop to many of the fairways.
