Lech plus 1,500 altitude metres plus mountains: It makes sense that a golf course in this area would be somewhat hilly, right? Wrong! At Golfclub Lech the contrary is the case: lush, smooth, flat green as far as the eye can see. But that’s not the only special feature that amazes passionate golfers at Golfclub Lech. It’s the wonderful wide open space, the uninhibited view, the fascinating edges of the surrounding mountains, the quiet rambling of the river that meanders through the green. And of course, it’s also the encounters that take place there. On the terrace of the wood-panelled clubhouse, for example. Being at one with nature – that’s everybody’s goal in this wonderful place.
The game, the ball, and you.
The fact that this golf course was thought out, designed and made with a lot of sensitivity is not just due to the fact that the makers are passionate golfers themselves but also due to their love for Lech. One of them is Thomas Lucian, host at Burg Vital Resort. Aside from his love for wine, golf is his second big passion. ‘Actually, I always wanted to become a winemaker’, he smirks, ‘but of course that’s not something you can just do on the side. But golf, that’s something we always manage!’.
We – that’s he and his wife Hannelore, the two are in charge of Burg Vital Resort. ‘We had the privilege of playing on the world’s most beautiful golf courses, and it’s something we enjoy thoroughly. Taking a break, calming down, focusing on the game, the ball, and you’. Well that sounds like pure golf harmony, ‘but that’s not always the case’, the mother of five tells us, ‘though we may have the same opinion in most cases, that is not so on the golf course’.
