Situated on an altitude of 420 metres above sea level, the course benefits from its own micro climate and boasts the longest golf season in central Europe. The course comprises of shaped contours, a hilly topography and various water hazards, lined with rust coloured rocks creating a beautifully designed course. The course is considered a mighty challenge at an impressive 7,359 yards in length.
Designed by the leading golf architect Keith Preston, this course has a par of 72, and a USGA rating of 74.4 and a slope rating of 139 off the white tees. Each hole offers four or five tees with a total surface area of 12.900 square metres. Golf Digest USA ranked the Albatross the number one golf course in the Czech Republic, and the course gained further recognition for its outstanding quality by being named Golf Resort of the Year by the Czech golf industry for three consecutive years.
