The Gary Player Design company has been busy on a number of projects in central Europe lately and the new Modry Las course in north west Poland – an area famed for its rolling landscape, dense woodland and crystal clear lakes – is positive proof of its activities.  

The region is a popular summer resort area offering a wide variety of outdoor pursuits, from water sports to fishing, horse riding to hunting. The construction of the golf course precedes a residential development at Modry Las Golf Resort that will result in the discreet placement of two hundred houses around the 320-acre estate. 

The course is laid out in two returning loops of nine holes with the opening three holes each doglegging right round Lake Raduñ, as does the home hole at the end of the round. Water only comes into play at two other holes (14 and 15) so don’t get the idea that water hazards predominate in this captivating woodland setting.   

Only opened in the summer of 2009 by Gary Player, along with Miroslaw Drzewiecki, the Polish minister of sport, Modry Las has been described by the Black Knight as, “a classy golf course carved in a beautiful, natural landscape with mature pine forests, spring fed lakes and fields of wildflowers – just an incredible setting.”

Not a bad course even if lacking in great holes. A beautiful site by a lake and that's always nice. Somewhat let down by the maintenance, but that can always be fixed. Not among the best in Europe but a solid choice for anyone in the area.

This course is a step-up from other courses played on a recent trip to Poland. There is an air of quality on the course comparable with something we have come to expect in countries with an established golfing history. Only opened in 2009, I would say that the course is ahead of target in terms of maturity and playability - it certainly exceeded my expectations. As early as the 2nd hole, there is a stand-out hole; a tough par-5 turning right with a Modry Las Golf Course - Photo by reviewerwater hazard at what can be called an unusual length - crossing the fairway at about 150 yards to the green putting so much pressure on most people's second shots - very clever if you ask me. The 7th is another strong par-5, bunkers at tee shot landing point to a green protected by water and a good looking stone wall. The 15th I am sure can be called the signature hole, here is a mid length par-3, over water with a fantastic bunker short and right that makes its way into the water at the front, for those that know, it is like the bunker on the 15th at Kuala Lumpur G&CC. One small observation of the par-5 16th hole; it is very much like the 7th, mentioned previously - both very good holes but maybe just too similar. Overall this was a great experience which can only improve as in 2016 the long awaited clubhouse will open... Do allow some extra time to play the short 9 hole course here called Orli Las too - very nice indeed.

It's overrated , i wouldnt put this on the first place in Poland. Gary Player signature design assures that this is great golf course with beautiful layout however greens are slow and not properly maintained, it cant be in this class.

couldnt agree more, no clubhouse since opening, entrance road muddy, so beware of rain and most greens on little kurhans, so cant see the landing area properly
