Black Stork Golf Resort, Slovakia1

The High Tatra mountain range in central Europe is an extraordinary place: apart from the 25 peaks above 2500m there are unique glacial lakes, protected plants and rare animals. The Black Stork golf resort in Veľká Lomnica has an unrivalled position on the south side, in the protected area of the Tatra National Park. Unspoilt countryside, mountain peaks and fresh air – these are the attributes to enjoy and appreciate on the 120 ha of beautiful scenery. In October 2011 the golf resort was awarded the prestigious PGA brand – a PGA Golf Course and became only the 19th course in the world with this quality mark.

There are 27 holes of golf (3 course combinations), driving range, covered driving range, chipping area, putting green, golf academy and golf simulator; golf school with individual tuition and of course a golf equipment hire shop. Entry to the covered range and practice areas is free of charge. Each of the three 9-hole courses has its own individual characteristics and are magnificent in their own right. They offer resplendent views of the Tatra mountain range: from certain holes on course Vardon only the Belianske Tatras are visible, at others the central Tatra panorama comes into view, but also the low Tatras, Kráľova Hoľa and even Slovak paradise… Although the golfers are surrounded by mountains, the course itself is relatively flat and as well as wonderful views has many water features and numerous lakes. The first 9 holes stretch above the Skalnatý stream (from Skalnaté pleso), the second rises beyond the stream and the third follows its flow. The quality of the course is accredited to the well known Austrian course designer Hans Erhardt. The driving range is 350m long, has 20 covered tees and can be played from both sides.
