Prague and golf
Everyone knows that Prague is a place people come to admire architecture. But people are sometimes pleasantly surprised to find that you can improve your handicap at some luxury golf resorts in the city. If you are a fan of the so-called “sport of gentlemen”, don’t hesitate and come and enjoy top-notch courses around Prague.
The first 18-hole resort in Prague can be found in the tranquil surroundings of Zbraslav. Prague City Golf Club is located 2km from Zbraslav Chateau, home to the National Gallery’s collection of Asian art. Between the Berounka and Vltava rivers you can enjoy every facility and comfort as well as a superb round of golf. Proof of the high standards set by this resort is the fact that it was partially designed by the best Czech golfer, Alex Čejka. A unique setting a few minutes from the city centre where every round is a real experience.
