Kärntner Golf-Club Dellach in one of the oldest golf clubs in Austria and it’s named after the federal state of Carinthia (Kärntner in German) and Dellach, which is the adjacent lakeside resort. The Carinthian Golf Club Dellach is one of the three oldest golf clubs in Austria (the oldest being Vienna) and it’s situated on the south bank of Lake Wörthersee.

It’s a gorgeously scenic setting with the dramatic backdrop of the Alps and the beautiful shallow Lake Wörthersee in the foreground. The climate here in Austria's south, is pleasantly mild, extending the golfing season. But even here, there will be plenty of snow on the ground during the winter months.

Kärntner Dellach is delightfully undulating with some lovely elevation changes (take a buggy if you don’t fancy some tough walking). Despite its modest length (5,609 metres from the tips), it remains one of Austria’s most challenging courses.

The Kärntner Golf-Club Dellach is currently the home of the Kärntner Regional Golf Union. Founded in 1927, its long tradition is a result of the British Armed Forces who were stationed in the area. The BTA Cup (British Troops in Austria) is still played for today at Kärntner Dellach. We understand that an unknown French architect originally designed the course as a nine-holer and it was later extended in the 1950s. Does anybody know who designed it?

Use your driver sparingly on the tight front nine which weaves its way through the trees. The back nine is more open and its here that you can reach for your driver, but make sure you don’t get distracted by the breathtaking views over Lake Wörthersee to the distant Alps. Golfing views don’t come any better that at Kärntner Dellach.

This golf course is near Velden and Klagenfurt in Austria. It is a classic parkland course. The front nice really narrow wihle on the back nine the fairways seem to be a little bit more open.You get some wonderful views of the Wörthersee from the 12th green and the tee of the 13th and the 14th hole. This course has just one bad thing. The last hole a 180-200 m Par 3 plays over the driving range. And as a resualt of space also the driving range is just not up to the standard of such a nice course.Through all my rounds it was in perfect condition with wonderful greens.

Of the 5 courses I played in Austria this was the second best. In a beautiful lakeside position most of the course is played in deep forest. Some fo the drives are quite tight and the 4th as I recall is one of the hardest par 4's I have ever played. The condition is superb although it is quite a hilly course.It is on the back 9 that it opens up a little bit and you can view the lake although I felt these holes were a little weaker. One black mark is the finishing hole, which is spoiled by having the driving range hitting across a very tough par 3. Very friendly staff and highly recommend if on the area
