A wonderful environment and optimal external conditions
Gut Altentann then and now
This 18 hole golf course was the first golf course to be designed by Jack Nicklaus on the European Continent. According to Jack Nicklaus it was a pleasure to design and build this course. The perfect and ideal landscape enabled him to create a high quality international golf course. To quote Jack Nicklaus “… this course is an accomplishment in golf architecture”. As you discover this course, it is noticeable to see that he put all his passion, knowledge and his three unique design criteria into the design and development of this course.
You will see after having played the golf course how well he followed his ideas.
Historically the area surrounding the golf course is mentioned first in 785 AD. In the 17th century a castle was erected and after its unfortunate decay, due to financial problems, it finally burned down in 1680. At the exact location of where the castle once stood, now stands the clubhouse, originally built in 1782.
