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. 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: Colony Club Gutenhof is located a mere 10 kilometres to the south of Vienna and this was Austria's first 36-hole golf club. Rating: 4 out of 6 Reviews: 2

Wonderful 36-hole layout just 20 minutes from Vienna. Both courses the east and the west are set in a wonderful parkland area. Both are challenging although in flatter terrain.The greens on both courses are up to the highest standard and so is the condition of both courses also extremly good.If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and play a round of golf in a quite setting this is the right choice.

Nice country club just south of Vienna airport. Clubhouse is impressive but the course are nothing more than OK. Doesnt really capture the essence of being in Austria as the courses are quite flat. The West is more open with lots of water hazards, wheras the East is, at least on the back 9 in the trees. Pleasant but no more and at 90 GBP would have expected a bit more..3.5 balls about right
