Krakow Valley Golf & Country Club, a golf complex covering an area of 160 hectares, has been created in last years in Pacz??towice, a small village between Krak?w and Katowice. The complex, centred around an 18-hole Championship Course on one of the biggest golf complexes in Central Europe. Designed by world-famous course designer Ronald Fream from California, the Krakow Valley Course includes a top-class Driving Range, Academy Course, as well as chipping and putting greens.
Surrounded by a dense thick forest this championship golf course (par 72) aims to satisfy every player’s requirements. Diversified tee distances welcome both beginners (from 4.981 m from the front tee) and advanced players (up to 6.518 m from the pro tee). These distancies, a unique design, wide rolling fairways and massive bunkers around the greens with high, challenging faces – all these elements combine with a typical Polish landscape to allow the whole complex to aspire to a place among the top European golf courses. And all this thanks to the beauty of the Polish landscape.
But the American character of the course is not only a question of design – technical aspects of its development worked out by the United States Golf Association are also important here. Specific norms of the course development were worked out in terms of the look and quality of the grass surface.
