By the turn of the millennium, only a handful of golf courses existed in Poland. However since then over a dozen new courses have sprung up all over the country. Krakow Valley Golf & Country Club is home to one of the very best of these new designs, a golf complex covering an area of 160 hectares, has been created in last years in Paczółtowice, a small village between Kraków and Katowice. It was designed by Ronald Fream, an American from California who started his career in 1966 in the team of legendary Robert Trent Jones.

Laid out over a forested, undulating landscape this championship golf course (par 72) aims to satisfy every player’s requirements. Diversified tee distances which welcome both beginners and advanced players, wide rolling fairways and massive bunkers around the greens with high, challenging faces – all these elements combine with a typical Polish landscape to allow the whole complex to aspire to a place among the top European golf courses.

Krakow Valley was proud host to the European Seniors Tour, venue for the 2008 Polish Seniors Championship. Ian Woosnam emerged victorious, claiming his first European Seniors Tour title.
