Quellness Golf Resort Bad Griesbach has got the lot.

Set in the heart of Bavaria, rich in scenic views and historical landmarks, it is Europe’s largest golf resort, with no less than ten golf courses, all within eight minutes’ drive from each other.

This includes five 18-hole championship courses, three of which are designed by two-time Masters winner and legendary Ryder Cup star Bernhard Langer.

The resort also includes three nine-hole golf courses as well as a six-hole practice course and a six-hole kids’ layout.

Allianz Nickolmann Golf Course Brunnwies is undoubtedly the standout layout in the resort, as it is regularly voted as one of the top 20 courses in Europe. It was Langer’s first design for the golf resort and contains everything needed for a quality layout: beautiful scenery, suitable for golfers of all skill levels, hilly countryside and superbly maintained fairways.


The most unique of the ten courses on offer at Quellness is surely Lederbach, which is an extraordinary layout. The mountainous nature of the course results in magnificent views of the Bavarian Forest on one side, and the town of Bad Griesbach on the other. If that isn’t enough, then a stunning view of the Alps is the backdrop.

Another stunning track is the Beckenbauer Golf Course, which was a venue on the PGA European Tour for four years. Another Langer layout, it is known for being extremely challenging, as 13 of the 18 holes are protected by water.

St Wolfgang Golf Course Uttlau and Porsche Golf Course complete the list of championship courses available to play, with the latter aimed at a more leisurely round of golf.

Quellness also prides itself as owning some of the best facilities in Europe, and it would be hard to argue. The PGA Golf Academy offers a quality teaching concept, and you can start your golfing journey on the 72-hole putting practice area outside, or the indoor 18 hole putting facility.

You can combine golf with luxury by staying in one of three superior hotels at the resort. Maximilian, rated five-starts, is the biggest at Quelness and it equipped with an indoor thermal pool, outdoors sports pool and golf simulator lounge.

Fuerstenhof and Das Ludwig, both four-star hotels, are other options, or why not stay in one of three luxurious golf estates that are also situated in the resort.

As well as other training facilities such as a 360-degree driving range, and a total of 16 conference and meeting rooms, this resort is truly something special.
