Situated close to the historic South Moravian city of Brno, the Kaskáda Golf Resort offers golfers three 9-hole circuits – Wooden, Stone and Iron – and the premier 18-hole combination is considered to be the Wooden and Stone nines.
The Wooden nine plays along the contour lines of the valley, with the downhill par three 7th acknowledged as one of the most photogenic in the country. The Stone nine is routed over more hilly terrain, culminating in a right doglegged par five that weaves between a couple of small lakes en route to the home green.
The Iron nine shouldn’t be overlooked, even though it’s laid out on rather flat, less interesting ground. The par four 2nd and par three 7th are two of the highlights on this loop, with water coming into play at both holes.
Jonathan Gaunt's comment:
This course is a first for the region, in that it offers golf facilities for every level of player. Challenging in its nature, the course is situated on a west-facing hillside and in a peaceful valley surrounded by mature oak forest. The golf complex comprises 3 x 9-hole 3300m loops, a 6-hole golf academy and 300-metre driving range.
The golf courses feature gently undulating greens, multiple teeing positions, numerous lakes and strategically placed bunkers - all designed to encourage golfers to improve their game.
The resort was developed with financial assistance from the R & A in St. Andrews and European Union funding by local mechanical engineering company Alta a.s. and it was built to a very high standard by Czech contractors, under the supervision the Jonathan Gaunt design team and project manager, Chris Johnson.
All facilities were opened for play on 3rd June 2007 by Mirek Topolánek, Prime Minister of the Czech Republic, who became President of the European Council in 2009.For information on other Gaunt Golf Design work, click here
