A golfer´s facial expression is often anything but descriptive. A poker face that would not be amiss in Las Vegas. But what remains hidden from outsiders at our hotel with golf course in Valdaora is the true range of emotions behind the facade. Fully concentrated on the moment, finding the balance and maintaining it. Always keeping the target in sight, focusing on the ball and the perfect tee shot. What a thrill – right up to the familiar “clack” sound when club and ball meet.
Our hotel´s own 3-hole golf course in Valdaora is located directly opposite the hotel and is available to our guests free of charge. The only requirement is the handicap and membership in an international golf club (except for participants in our golf courses). Whether experienced golfer, rookie or beginner – golf becomes the most beautiful sport in the world in front of the breathtaking panorama of the Dolomites.
… is characterised by a very private atmosphere – which is ideal for undisturbed improvement of individual aspects of the game, for taking your first relaxed swings and for gaining your course licence during your golf holiday in Val Pusteria. A constant companion: a Dolomite panorama that makes you forget about time, a stream that widens into a small pond and crosses the golf course from north to south and pure nature!
Our driving range
… is equipped with a total of ten mat tees, six of which are covered. Five target greens at different distances (up to 150 m) offer golf enthusiasts the opportunity to practice golf with different clubs. The practice facilities for the “short game” with bunkers, chipping green and putting green allow players to hone their skills.
Chipping and putting green
… the 700 m² putting green is ideal for practising putts on straight and rolling surfaces. A chipping green with, among other things, a bunker for practising completes the offer.
… with a length ranging from 120 to 190 m, the three top-maintained par courses are perfect for beginners and advanced players to experience that authentic golf feeling or simply to play in a fun round with friends. The fairways have different levels of difficulty and provide an ideal practice terrain.
… with an area of 300 m², there are three fairways available to you, two of them with three tees, one with two tees. The greens in the fairways challenge you to play some strategic golf with the integrated sand and grass bunkers.
Out of love for sport

Mirabell’s golf school
At our golf school, PGA-certified pros will be waiting to teach you the game on a variety of golf courses and guide you to (DGV) handicap. Our team includes the PGA-certified golf instructor Ulrich Schneider, who offers years of practical experience (e.g. at the Golf Association of Lower Saxony Bremen, GC Erlangen, GC Abenberg; members of the PGA of Germany), golfexpertise and know-how.
Tips from the pros: four phases to golf success
The Golf Club Mirabell is the ideal golf course to start playing and for all those who want to improve their golfing skills. Progress is divided into four phases: from the first attempts to getting the license to play, through membership in the Golf Club Mirabell up to the handicap.
Phase 1: getting started
The first shots are a fantastic feeling: hitting the ball sixty, seventy or a hundred metres for the first time. Clubs and balls are available at the Mirabell reception. You will soon feel a sense of achievement and feel yourself becoming a golf fan in no time.
Phase 2: handicap course on holiday
If you are already familiar with the balls and clubs, you can also skip phase 1 and register directly for a golf course. With the handicap you will be introduced to the world of golf in a course lasting several days with theory and practice, club, etiquette and rules. Beginners are thus – following the concept of handicap – made ready or suitable for playing on the golf course.
Phase 3: member of the Golf Club Mirabell
With the handicap, you can sign up for a membership at the Golf Club Mirabell and play on any golf course in the world (the Golf Club Mirabell has been a member of the FIG, the association of officially approved golf courses in Italy, since November 2003). As a general rule: a player must be a member of a golf club in order to play on other courses.
Tip: The Golf Club Mirabell offers beginners a cost advantage. No admission fee is charged, as is the case at most courses.
Phase 4: earning a handicap
Membership at the Golf Club Mirabell gives you the opportunity to play with friends on any golf course. If you want to play alone, you will need the handicap. To do this, you will take part in a handicap golf tournament. The aim is not to exceed a certain number of predetermined shots. This number of shots is called your handicap. If you stay below it, you have reached or improved the handicap.
For big and small
