Konopiste Golf Club (D’Este Course), Czechia

Konopiste Golf Club (D’Este Course) – Review and Rating

Konopiste Golf Club is different than most golf clubs in the Czech Republic in that is a complete resort, including two golf courses, training facilities, a hotel, a full-service spa, and a restaurant.

The resort is built around an old castle that originally belonged to the Radecky family. During the communist era, it fell into disrepair but has now been fully restored into a beautiful hotel and restaurant.

There are two golf courses, Radecky and D’Este, centered around the hotel. Radecky, named after one of the original owners of the estate, is the “older” of the two, opened in 2002, while D’Este was completed in 2005. The two courses are similar in nature, but there are some differences.

The D’Este course quickly climbs, and the views get better and better.

On a sunny day you can literally see for “miles and miles” from holes 4-5-6, before you start working your way back to the club house. The finishing hole on the first nine is the most beautiful of them all and also the most fun to play. A par four, downhill all the way, with the green on an island at the bottom of the hill. You could almost drive the green, if it wasn’t for that water…

The second nine at D’Este shares some of the same problems at the second nine at Radecky, but doesn’t have quite as many blind holes. All in all the D’Este course is wider and a bit easier than the Radecky.

It may sound like we don’t like the course, but that is not so. The course gets better and better the more you play them, and the quality of both fairways and greens is quite good. Highly recommended.
