Another great place to play golf in Tyrol is golf club Achensee. It is the oldest golf club in Tyrol and one of the first established in Austria at all.

The golf club is located in beautiful surroundings between the magnificent Karwendel Mountains and Lake Achensee. The course has been gradually improved and upgraded so that it is now one of Europe's best.
