Educational: Our golf school

Golf Academy and Golf Performance Centre

GC Brandlhof Putting Green

Thanks to our indoor golf simulator, you can practice and train at the Golfclub Gut Brandlhof even off-season, when our 18-hole golf course is closed. Our professional golf coaches, Head Pro John Seymour and Pro Markus von Knoerzer, use the most modern techniques and technology for successful golf training.

Golf Training

The first step of the training is a thorough analysis of your play: which factors make your play successful – and which do not? After the diagnosis, you will receive a detailed training plan, and you will thoroughly practice your swing and putting movements. We aim to increase your performance, long term and permanent. Our holistic training approach also includes the usage of technological devices to improve your golf skills – no matter what level of skills you are. That is training on tour level with professional coaches.

18-hole Championship Course

Our 18-hole championship golf course, located evenly between the glittering Saalach River and the Salzburg Alps mountain ranges, will make your heart beat faster. Improve your skills while enjoying the breath-taking view. On the virtual tour of the course and with our webcam you can get an excellent first impression and see the current conditions on the driving range.
