With 19 courses within an hour's drive, Kitzbühel may properly lay claim to being the golf center of the Alps. The Golf Alpin Pass offers special deals on greens fees; it's available at some hotels and golf clubs, or from the tourist office.
Golf Eichenheim. Heady views of soaring Alpine peaks surrounding the course are mixed with leafy fringed fairways to give this 18-hole PGA-rated venue a unique appeal.

Golfclub Kitzbühel. A pretty course, the nine holes of the Golfclub Kitzbühel wind between ancient trees and water hazards with a fabulous backdrop of Alpine grandeur. The slightly hilly terrain of the 9-hole course is set around the Grand Spa Resort A-Rosa, and resort guests receive a discount.
