Colony Club Gutenhof is located a mere 10 kilometres to the south of Vienna and with two 18-hole courses to choose from – East and West – this was Austria’s first club able to boast a full 36-hole facility.

The West course is widely considered to be the better of the two layouts but the East is an excellent course in its own right. Both layouts opened for play in 1989 and were designed by Kurt Rossknecht and Hans Erhardt.

Both layouts are traditional parkland courses, which measure slightly more than 6,400 metres with par set at 73. Ryder Cup Captain Sam Torrance was enthusiastic about the Colony Club: "These two traditional parkland courses certainly belong amongst Europe’s best, as well as the signature holes, the course has an abundance of memorable holes."

The Colony Club has already played host to several international championships including the Austrian open in 1993 and the Austrian Ladies Open in 1996 and the club continues to grow in stature.

Description: The East course at the Colony Club Gutenhof is a traditional parkland layout which measure slightly more than 6,400 metres with par set at 73. Rating: 4.5 out of 6 Reviews: 2

The Colony club Gutenhof boasts two 18 hole championship golf courses. One as good as the other. Played the course this year in June and it was not so good as the yeasr before but this was due to the weather situation I think. Normally both courses are kept at a very high quality, witexcellent greens and wonderful fairways.

For me the West course has a more beautiful layout the East has some holes that look like one and the other. But nontheless a must play in Austria.

I prefer the public access East to the West but both are flat and no very exciting. Codition is usually good and its a nice quite location which is pleasant so near to Vienna.
