Ebreichsdorf  (European Tour)
Ebreichsdorf (European Tour)

Set in the Baden district of Austria, Ebreichsdorf has become a familiar name on the Qualifying School calendar over the past few years.

Here Claude Grenier, a club professional at Ebreichsdorf, talks us through the challenges posed by the short but tricky course.

“It is a nice flat parkland golf course," he said. "It was built in the early 90s by Keith Preston and was redesigned three years ago by Michael Pinner.

“The golf course is relatively short considering the distances the players hit it nowadays – it’s 6,400 yards long. But it is quite narrow and can prove very difficult in the wind.

“In the past players have found themselves having to change the way they are playing after two round with the wind playing so tough.

“The greens are fast so being careful when putting is crucial. If you mistime your putts, you can easily find yourself three metres past the pin.

“But if it is a still day and you hit straight off the tee then you are capable of scoring very well here.

“The main holes to look out for are the first and second which are long par fours and can cause a lot of problems.

“All of our par fives are reachable in two for the professional guys, so when we hold professional competitions we raise the par of the course from 68 to 72.

“Despite that we have still had some fantastic scores here, and our course record stands at 62.”
