Seventh Season in Lipiny Golf Resort The Golf Course in Lipiny, the district of Karviná, officially opened on May 2, 2012. The course was founded in the industrial landscape between two active coalmines, in the country recently showing clear traces of intense coalmining. OKD had recultivated the area, and with help from EU funding, developed a unique sports facility for locals as well as tourists. The Lipiny Golf Resort (Karviná - Lipiny) is an eighteen-hole golf course that will make both professional players and beginners happy. It includes a nine-hole Championship Golf Course, a nine-hole Public Course, floodlit training areas, an interesting designer restaurant, and more. A unique feature dominating of the course is a replica of a coalmine tower with a fine view of the course. Novelties in 2018 “Preparation for the season begins in winterů; golfers kept coming and played so–called short winter holes and did some training Driving Range,” comments the manager of the Lipiny Golf Resort, Mr Pavel Malina. Have you introduced some novelty features for the 7th season of this attractive golf course? In autumn we covered the Driving Range with a sophisticated artificial green by British specialist HUXLEY which allows practice even in snow. We are preparing a new facility for storing golf bags. 2018 is going to be an extremely busy year with 49 tournaments and events open to the wide public from nine-hole tournaments for beginners, social events and Ladies Days to 18-hole tournaments for advanced players. We want to develop our activities in this direction as we believe this is the right way to go and introduce this fantastic sport to more people. Do not hesitate to ask for more information and details at the reception in person, on the phone, following our webpage or on Facebook. Lipiny Golf Resort opened six years ago. Have the local people already got used to coming here and relaxing thanks to your nice prices policy, trying a few swings at the Driving Range and spending a peaceful time here, forgetting their daily worries?
It’s getting better. People have changed their stereotype thinking which makes us very happy. Yet we do understand that it is a longterm job, and we are trying to stretch a point. We are currently offering a START card with basic training at the Public Course for all visitors and absolute golf beginners. The course is open every Tuesday at 5pm and 10am on Saturdays.
The Lipiny Golf Resort offers an extraordinary opportunity to all who want to join the wonderful world of golf. How many visitors did you have in 2017? The number is 21,000. Polish golfers discovered our resort and come back; we are very happy to have 700 hundred new players thanks to the START card mentioned before. Back to winter: were many players interested in playing the “short holes”? When there was no snow, yes, they were. Especially in January when the weather was simply great.
