Golf vacation with Golf Alpin

Top flight: The Sonnhof is fully equipped for golfers from head to toe.

Leisure is essential for a successful game of golf. If one is not entirely present and doesn’t clear all non-golf-related thoughts from their mind for a while, they will not achieve their personal best. Perhaps that is why we have developed a special love for the sport of golf. One thing is certain: undulating terrain, numerous challenges, and lush green fairways – golfing in the mountains has its unique charm. This is especially true at our place.



From Sonnhof Alpendorf, you can not only reach a total of 18 Golf Alpin courses within a maximum of 60 minutes by car but we also have our very own course. And, of course, we provide exclusive FREE access to our course for all our guests, prioritizing their enjoyment above all else!

Golfing á la carte

These are our favorite courses.

Here we present a selection of golf courses in the Salzburg region. With the “Golf Alpin” card, you can play on all these golf courses. You have the option to choose between 3 to 5 green fees.

As a guest of Sonnhof, you can play unlimited rounds for free at the St. Johann Alpendorf golf course.
