Holes Golfclub Bad Kleinkirchheim-Kaiserburg in Carinthia
Detailed description with tips and tricks for every hole at the golf course Kaiserburg by Franz Klammer
- Hole: 443 m/379 m - Par 5 - HCP 5
"A tricky starting hole. Above you the wannabes at the clubhouse, to the left the driving range, at drive level a stream. But you have to get across it so that you can reach the high green plateau with a 3-iron. After putting into the hole, it is worth looking backwards. A great view of the Nockberge."
- Hole: 407 m/359 m - Par 4 - HCP 7
"When teeing downhill I tend towards the right, as that’s where the 8th fairway is. The green can be mastered without great difficulty. Squat and read it well!"
- Hole: 329 m/282 m - Par 4 - HCP 13
"Twice a good 5-iron and this darned hefty hole loses its terror. I play a short shot to the green, because to the right and behind it rapidly flowing water swallows up the balls."
- Hole: 373 m/283 m - Par 4 - HCP 11
"A hook during the drive is ideal. The second shot, however, is quite something: it must be played with power over a little stream up to a wavy green. The bunker should be avoided if possible."
- Hole: 156 m/142 m - Par 3 - HCP 17
"I’m fond of this hole. To the left of it is the final leg of the ski slope K70 named after me."
- Hole: 376 m/330 m Par 4 - HCP 3
"The most difficult hole not only for me! You have to get across three stretches of water to reach the green peninsula. I often play for a bogey here from the beginning."
- Hole: 135 m/126 m - Par 3 - HCP 15
"The same ‘quality’ for women and men. Before choosing the iron, it is essential to check the wind."
- Hole: 470 m/418 m - Par 5 - HCP 9
"With the help of the wind, even an eagle is possible. If the flag stays in the hole when putting, it incurs penalty shots."
- Hole: 422 m/370 m - Par 4 - HCP 1
"A golf treat that one often chokes on. Those for who the second strike over the pond is too long should deviate to the parallel first fairway. Not elegant, but effective."
- Hole: 296 m/245 m - Par 4 - HCP 14
"Incredibly tight. Those who tee with a 5-iron will not be sneered at."
- Hole: 119 m/109 m - Par 3 - HCP 18
"A wedge as straight as a post. Close your eyes and don’t panic. Red posts mitigate the fiasco."
- Hole: 465 m/434 m - Par 5 - HCP 6
"A dream of a golf hole. With the drive I of course avoid the border to the right."
- Hole: 382 m/333 m - Par 4 - HCP 12
"Nothing less than a 100-metre tee will do here, because between the tee and fairway there is only a biotope. And woe betide anyone looking for balls there..."
- Hole: 507 m/457 m - Par 5 - HCP 4
"A full-on attack towards the green rarely goes well here. In case of doubt, I reckon with one shot more. The trout in the pond leap up into the air in gratitude."
- Hole: 384 m/295 m - Par 4 - HCP 10
"To ladies who are playing, I recommend a 5-wood when teeing off over the biotope. This is enough to get over it safely. The rest is without any pitfalls. A smooth approach."
- Hole: 361 m/311 m - Par 4 - HCP 8
"Dogleg to the right. Those who opt for direct here can miscalculate. After putting in, I look forward to the luxury of being chauffeured to the 17th hole. Small talk and take a deep breath."
- Hole: 120 m/108 m - Par 3 - HCP 16
"I attack here with a 9-iron. Uncompromising."
- Hole: 261 m/231 m - Par 4 - HCP 2
"The mouse trap. Here I play safety first with a 6-iron. The final shot towards the high invisible green is always a challenge. Always take an iron more than you think! After the last putt I always say to my partners: ‘Congratulations’, for the fair game, the Lady Tea or whatever.”
