TRAVEL INFO

Golf World (UK) - - PLAY -

Most of Carinthia is at al­ti­tude – even the Worthersee is some 1,500ft above sea level. This lim­its the play­ing sea­son to April to Oc­to­ber. The best times to play are ar­guably May and Septem­ber, when tem­per­a­tures reg­u­larly reach mid-to-low 20s Cel­sius. In mid sum­mer you can ex­pect it to nudge 30ºC, though you can also ex­pect some rain­fall even in July.

The typ­i­cal green fee is around €65€85 but you can also con­sider the Alpe Adria Golf Card (www.al­pead­ria-golf.com/en). It of­fers three fees for €195, four for €260 or five for €310 at 20 lo­cal cour­ses, with twofor-one in early and late-sea­son.

The near­est air­port is Kla­gen­furt, though the only di­rect flights from the UK are in win­ter. You can con­nect through Vi­enna from most air­lines. The best di­rect op­tion is to fly into Slove­nian cap­i­tal Ljubl­jana, around an hour’s drive south of Kal­gen­furt. EasyJet, Wizz Air and Adria pro­vide ser­vices from Lon­don and Manch­ester.

If you are driv­ing in Aus­tria or Slove­nia you will need a wind­screen toll sticker for the mo­tor­ways. These cost €9 for 10 days. Buy on­line from www.as­fi­nag.at
