Golfing in the Olympiaregion Seefeld is a real experience of nature. The 18 holes of the Golfclub Seefeld-Wildmoos, member of to the Leading Golfcourses Austria, were harmoniously embedded in the alpine region almost 50 years ago and the area presents itself as an alpine jewel.
The many names of Seefeld
The area around Seefeld provides many nicknames. One of them is „Olympiaregion. How come? In the years 1964, 1976 and 2012 the Tyorlean High Plateau was the venue of the Nordic disciplines of the Olympic Winter Games as well as the Youth Winter Games. And the popularity will not be lost in the future either: In 2019 the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships returned to Seefeld, and with 204,000 visitors it can certainly be regarded a success.
In the peace lies the strength
Whether at the Olympics or during an evening golf round with friends: Top performance starts in the head. In the Olympiaregion Seefeld, for example, various theme trails such as the Mental Power Path help all hobby and professional athletes to slow down and find their inner balance. Especially when playing golf, peace and serenity are important characteristics to keep your nerves even when you are on your tenth Cliffhanger.
Joy until the 19th hole
A visit to the green pays off in any case. The 18-hole golf club Seefeld-Wildmoos ismember of to the "Leading Golf Courses Austria". This is a special honour because the member companies are selected according to the strictest criteria and thus ensure guaranteed enjoyment up to the 19th hole, the club bar. This year there is a 50th anniversary to celebrate, for which the team of the golf club has already devised some cool events. The golf club also includes the Seefeld-Wildmoos golf school, where golfers of all handicaps are taught. If you find 18 holes too many, you can also do your rounds in the beautiful 9-hole Seefeld Reith Golf Club, with a spacious training area at the Seefeld-Reith Golf Academy. The Seefeld-Reith Golf School offers its guests excellent instruction and there are always children's and youth camps, which are visited by young golfers with pleasure.
Hiking is the golfer's desire!
When playing golf, you have to cover long distances, about six to eight kilometres for 18 holes. Not exhausted enough yet? There are countless other possibilities to do sports in the Olympiaregion Seefeld and because we all know that hiking in good company is a lot of fun, there are many hiking events in Seefeld every summer for a good mountain experience. The „Karwendelmarsch“ on 31st of August counts 2,500 participants, who master a 52 kilometre march across the Karwendel Nature Park. An experience that will be remembered forever. Participants from the „IML Einhornmarsch“ in Leutasch will find out whether there are mythical creatures in the mountains. From 13 to 15 September 2019, hikers from all over the world will come together and walk up to 42 kilometres a day together.
Or would you prefer to travel alone? Then it's best to embark on the Seefeld King's Tour. It leads from the „Seefelder Joch“ to the „Nördlinger Hütte“. In the high valley Leutasch you hike through the alpine paradise „Gaistal“ into the untouched regions of Tyrol. Even in the smallest village in the region, Mösern-Buchen, there is plenty to do. Try to find the irregular Lotten and Wildmoos lakes, although this year it is not yet certain whether they will appear or not! In Reith a bee nature trail shows how the eager animals work and live. In Scharnitz you can cool off with a refreshing footbath along the Gleirschklamm gorge on hot summer days at the sight of the mighty mountain stream, which you come very close to while hiking along the gorge.
Insider tip: It doesn't always have to be exhausting: The mountain can also be climbed with the mountain railway in summer. Under the motto "Sport & Relax" you can reach unique panorama sights without sweating.
The food of the emperors
In the Olympiaregion Seefeld, the culinary needs of athletes are well known. Above all carbohydrates are part of the daily menu. These help to survive many hours on the golf course without stomach growls. So that the valuable carbohydrates also taste good, top chefs from the region hide them in delicacies such as the famous Tyrolean „Kaiserschmarren“.
THE FAVORITE PLACES OF THE NATIVE
Those who have practised their tee shot, performed their breathing exercises and tasted the Tyrolean cuisine will follow the recommendations of the locals and take a look at other (chocolate) sides of the Seefeld Olympic region.
Tip 1: Stroll along the Seefeld Tuesday Market
Local farmers offer their products in Seefeld‘s pedestrian zone. Between 4th of June and 3rd of September, there are different market stands where you can taste, chat and enjoy.
Tip 2: Eat as much strudel as you can at the Seefeld‘s „Strudelfest“.
Hearty, spicy, sweet or light: there is nothing that doesn't exist when it comes to „Strudel“ - at least in Seefeld’s town centre. The festival will take place on 7th of July 2019 and it is certainly one of the culinary highlights of the year.
Tip 3: Celebration in White
White Night - Fashion & Lifestyle Party on 14 August 2019: White Night is the only night of the year where you don't have to worry about your outfit. Dress code is clear: all in white!
Tip 4: Be there at the annual „Almabtrieb“ (return of the cattle from the alpine pastures)
If you have never seen this before, you should mark this time in the year red in your calendar. To understand the magic of the dwindling summer, you have to experience it yourself. In Seefeld and Leutasch you can expect it between the first and third weekends of September. Dates approx. 6 weeks before on www.seefeld.com
Tip 5: Get to know the fence tradition from Mösern-Buchen
In Mösern they like to build fences - without any modern technical aids. They rely on old and traditional cultural techniques, in which larch and spruce wood is heated by fire and then braided. Production takes place in Mösern-Buchen, the smallest community in the Olympiaregion Seefeld. The fences can be admired in many places in the region.
The Seefeld Golf Academy presents itself with 9 holes and a course length of 6,045 metres (SSS72), just a few minutes' walk from the Seefeld pedestrian zone.
