“Hotels on the Golf Course” continues to grow Three New Properties New Brochure, Golf Trophy 2017
The idea is simple but brililant: Overnight lodging on green playgrounds. In 2011 hotels in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, all located on golf courses, joined forces for a new marketing cooperation: "Hotels auf dem Golfplatz" (Hotels on the Golf Course). Since its inception the group has grown to 29 members in Germany, Austria, Italy and Spain. For 2017 three new properties have joined this initiative: A-ROSA Resort located on Lake Scharmützelsee, Margarethenhof on Lake Tegernsee in Bavaria and Hofgut Georgenthal near Wiesbaden. A-ROSA, located about 90 km from Berlin, boasts three signature courses designed by Nick Faldo, Arnold Palmer and Stan Eby plus a 9-hole public course. The Faldo Course, site of two German Opens, was Germany’s course for the unsuccessful bid for the Ryder Cup 2018. Margarethenhof with a picturesque setting in the Bavarian Alps has been a popular destination for discerning golfers since its opening. The latest member of “Hotels auf dem Golfplatz” is also one of the newest courses in Germany. Hofgut Georgenthal is located in the RheinMain metropolitan area between Frankfurt and Wiesbaden. The 4-Star-Hotel opened its18 hole championship course last year and received many favorable reviews.
„Hotels auf dem Golfplatz“ (Hotels on the Golf Course) has also just published their new brochure for 2027 with an overview of partner hotels and golf courses in four countries. All 29 members offer attractive ”Stay & Play” packages.
While the brochure so far is only in German, there is an English summary on the website www.hotelsaufdemgolfplatz.com with links to all partner hotels and a map showing where the various hotels and golf courses are located in four countries. Further information and updates in English will be added throughout the year.
The popular Golf Trophy, a series of amateur tournaments for their guests, will also be continued in 2017. 25 tournaments will be played in Germany and Austria between April and October with the largest choice of tournaments ever. Competitions will cover a broad regional spectrum from the North of Germany with the coast of the Baltic Sea all the way down South through many regions of Germany into Bavaria and Austria. Kick-off will be on April 22, 2017 at Golfpark Strelasund close to the Baltic Sea in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. All competitors at each and every tournament will be entered into a ballot where one lucky participant can win a travel voucher for two overnights plus breakfast and greenfees at one of the member hotels. On top of that each tournament offers great prizes for the winners. International guests are of course also welcome to register and participate.
Further details and registration for the Golf Trophy with links to all partner hotels can be found at www.hotelsaufdemgolfplatz.com
