Back in 1968, golf was still very underdeveloped in Austria. In fact, there were less than fifteen courses in the country when Mr. Karl Bauer and Dr. Wolfgang Paul (the first president of the club) created an 18-hole golf course on a piece of flat land south of Vienna with the help of Scottish architect Douglas Stonehouse.

Föhrenwald was very open then, but the club soon called in Jeff Howes, a Canadian golf architect who worked for Jack Nicklaus before relocating to Ireland and setting up his own design business. Jeff Howes has been tweaking, redesigning and improving the course for some twelve years now, planting trees, reshaping holes and greens, and creating several holes on land acquired after 1968. The new holes add relief to the layout as they are located in two quarries which used to border the golf course.

Golfclub Föhrenwald was home to the Ladies European Tour’s Austrian and then Uniqa Open from 2005 to 2012, which unfortunately no longer exists within the LET calendar. However, the course is still kept in very good condition all year round and will be a source of enjoyment to golfers of all levels.
