Hungary

Hungary is landlocked in the centre of Europe by no fewer than seven different countries. Budapest, the lively capital, is one of Europe’s most beautiful cities with its laid-back café lifestyle, music scene and numerous cultural festivals. With art and architecture as well as fine embroidery, pottery and paintings, Hungary is a cultural haven.

Golf is broadening its appeal in Hungary and according to the Hungarian Golf Federation there are now sixteen golf facilities in operation across the country, nine 18-hole courses. five 9-hole layouts and a couple of driving ranges. The majority of these are set within relatively easy reach of the capital, Budapest.

Pannonia Golf & Country Club at Alcsútdoboz was for a long time the premier 18-hole national course, but the emergence of the new Robert Trent Jones II course at Zala Springs in 2016 has eclipsed Pannonia at the top of the chart.
