Golf Club Eppan “The Blue Monster”
Eppan a.d. Wine Route (BZ) | South Tyrol –
The Golf Club Eppan with its golf course “The Blue Monster” is located in the mild South Tyrolean Adige Valley between the towns of Eppan, Andriano and Terlan on the South Tyrolean Wine Route. The golf course, which was designed in 2015, comprises a 9-hole course and is located on the edge of the tourism stronghold of Eppan in the south of South Tyrol. Nine challenging holes over 10,000 square meters, perfect greens and many small lakes, surrounded by a fantastic mountain scenery, inspire every golf enthusiast. The extremely flat topography and the relatively high groundwater table were crucial in the planning and main reason to create a place with plenty of water. The artificial lakes also serve the golf course as a water reservoir. A positive side effect of the many water surfaces is to make a significant contribution to the landscape and ecological upgrading. In addition, additional so-called extensive areas complement the golf course and create a unique natural landscape. A place with challenges for risk-averse professionals and at the same time a place with sure success experiences for beginners, this makes the golf course “The Blue Monster” in Eppan attractive for all. Relatively wide fairways create pleasant “escape routes” (bailouts) so as not to overstrain the weaker golfer. With more risk use, the success increases, but also the penalties can be higher. This “risk reward philosophy” is, in addition to the strategic creation of other obstacles, such as bunkers and solitary trees, a core principle of the golf course in Eppan on the South Tyrolean Wine Route. The choice of five different tee positions makes the golf course extremely flexible and is therefore suitable for any level of play.
