Konopiste Golf Club (Radecky 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 Radecky course is by the members considered to be the main course.

It is predominantly a parkland course running across a hilly landscape, although a section on the first nine runs through a forest area. The first nine are also the most interesting, with both magnificent views and and some quite tricky holes meandering through the forest. The signature hole is number 6, a short par 3 played over a pond, with the drop area on a small peninsula.

On the back nine, the Radecky course gets a bit repetitive, with holes going back and forth over a hill, making for many blind holes. The first time you play the course this is quite a problem since you have no idea what’s coming. If you play the course a couple of times you get the hang of it, and the holes grow on you. The finishing hole is different, and quite beautiful, ending with an approach over the pond just in front of the hotel. Not an easy hole, you have to play it a couple of times to figure it out. Many matches are decided here.
