Celebs, skiers and golfers compete for the title

For 47 years now, participants from home and abroad have been battling it out in the International Ski & Golf Competition for the coveted championship title and the silver trophy. The Golf Challenge is hosted at Gastein Golf Club, one of the oldest and most tradition-rich golf clubs in Austria.


In addition to passionate golfers and avid skiers, this popular event also draws celebrities from the worlds of sport, business, politics and entertainment, all of whom would never pass up on the opportunity to attend. No wonder: A competition involving a classic snow sport together with a sport you associate with the green, green grass of summertime, is something truly special here in Austria.

The Gastein Advantage: winter on the mountain, spring in the valley

Gastein Valley offers perfect conditions so you can enjoy the best of both worlds, conditions that are practically unique in all of Salzburger Land: In the mountains at almost 2700 meters above sea level, there's still a lot of snow, allowing up to 120 competitors to slice their way gracefully down the giant-slalom course.


And then, back in the valley, the perfect golf challenge awaits: In Bad Gastein, springtime has well and truly made its triumphal arrival by now. And thanks to the unique geographic location of Gastein Valley, the Gastein golf course is one of the first in all of Salzburger Land to become playable again in spring. For you as a golfer, that means: long drives down beautifully trimmed fairways, perfectly manicured greens, and an exciting golf match-up.
