In 2005, the course acquired the Best Course of the Year award from the prestigious Golf Digest C&S magazine. On the premises of the golf club, you will find a comfortable clubhouse, an excellent restaurant, a Pro-Shop, as well as a golf cart and a club hire. The resort offers accommodation in the stylish Retro Riverside hotel, which, moreover, offers facilities for corporate and social events.
The course in Cihelny hosted several top-level golf tournaments, such as the 24th European Boys Team Champ, PGA, Czech Golf Tour 2004, Czech International Amateur Championship 2007, Mid-amateur Tour, Audi Invitational, etc.
At the same time, recreational golfers can play here as well, and even amateur golfers, for whom one of the biggest training sites in Europe is prepared here. This site includes e.g. a Golf Academy with a 9-hole pitch&putt course, which takes the form of a “rose garden” and is accessible to the general public.
Qualified golf coaches available to golfers will adapt to the individual pace of each player.
