Krakow Valley Golf & Country Club
Paczółtowice 328, 32-063 Krzeszowice
A golf complex covering an area of 160 hectares, has been created in last years in Paczółtowice, a small village between Kraków and Katowice. It was designed by Ronald Fream, an American from California who started his career in 1966 in the team of legendary Robert Trent Jones. As a representative of the Golfplan company, he came to Poland ? a country where not much has been happening in terms of golf in the last 50 years, but where recently an opportunity arose to build an extensive complex fulfilling all the requirements of international tournaments. Those of you who have already visited Golf de Disneyland Paris or Golf de I?Isle ? Adam in France, where Ronald Fream brought his visions to life, doubtless retain their impression of their magic and professional character.
Surrounded by a dense thick forest this championship golf course (par 72) aims to satisfy every player?s requirements. Diversified tee distances which welcome both beginners (from 4.981 m from the front tee) and advanced players (up to 6.518 m from the pro tee), 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.
