The 18-hole Eichenheim Golf Course, which lies nestled in the alpine golfing destination of Kitzbühel, will offer guests staying at the Grand Tirolia Golf and Ski Resort the chance to play on this prestigious golf course free of charge for the duration of May 2011.

The offer, which is open to anyone who books an overnight stay at the Grand Tirolia Golf and Ski Resort, entitles residents to one free round of golf. The luxurious 5 star hotel, which was opened at the end of last year, is situated at the heart of the Eichenheim Golf Course and permits a strong focus on outdoor activities.

The hotel’s private golf course, created by the star US designer, Kyle Philipps, takes players on a relaxing yet demanding journey through the beauty of the picture perfect Tyrolean Mountains. Currently ranked among the Top 100 golf courses in Europe, the 71-par and 6.092m long course is a challenge for even the most discerning of golfers and each hole on this renowned golf course provides a unique and often breathtaking experience.

Kyle Philipp’s philosophy that a golf course must fully incorporate the elements of the natural environment in which it is created is clearly evident in every stroke played at the course at Eichenheim. Gentle hills are followed by steep inclines. The bunkers are embedded in the lush green fairways. Deciduous forests and streams left to follow their natural course constitute challenging obstacles, set against the beautiful and varying backdrop of the Wild Kaiser, the Hahnenkamm and the High Tauern mountains.

“Anyone who plays at Eichenheim enjoys a golfing experience that is uniquely integral to nature and yet simultaneously offers an extreme sporting challenge” says Managing Director, Ulrich Drewitz.

The harmonious interplay of nature, sport and lifestyle which is so evident at the Eichenheim Golf Course is similarly a key element for the Grand Tirolia Golf and Ski Resort. Not only does the hotel offer the finest opportunities in golf, but also boasts a 1,500m2 wellness area featuring an exclusive Aveda Spa.

The hotel lends new meaning to the concept of well-being, relaxation and pleasure. Offering a multitude of fitness and wellness applications as well as a selection of massages and naturopathic treatments, the Grand Tirolia spa includes nine treatment rooms, two chocolate spa treatment rooms, interconnected indoor and outdoor pools and Jacuzzis, a Finnish sauna, Turkish baths, Hamman, Bania, a cold air room, ice cave and ice fountain and much more besides.
