Lipiny Golf Resort:
Excited about the 2020 Season
21,000 golfers: that is the summary of the previous season at the golf resort near Karviná, surrounded
by the ČSM, Darkov, and ČSA mineshaft towers. The Lipiny Golf Resort had a very good year
as manager Mr Pavel Malina confirms.
“The last event of our eighth golf season was the Lipiny
Cup 2019 open tournament, which took place on
a fantastic sunny day with excellent attendance,” Malina
said. Many newcomers appeared, and beginners to the
game competed in a special nine-hole category.
The course’s dominant feature, a replica of a mining
tower, saw tee offs and winners’ announcements to
tournaments and other events for the public “…from ninehole tournaments for beginners, entertainment, social
events, ladies’ days to eighteen-hole tournaments for
skilled golfers,” Malina explained. Then he emphasized
the operation of the Driving Range and Public Course
which is classified as the best public golf course in the
Czech Republic. It has become the most popular place
for amateurs who enjoy coming to play a few holes in
a fine, relaxed atmosphere with good prices.

“How the public perceives golf has changed for the
better in the past eight years. We are very busy working
with the young, organizing day camps in cooperation

with the Lipiny Golf Club association and supported
by the OKD Foundation (Nadace OKD). On the other
hand, we know that the recruitment of new players is
a long-term programme, which in our case includes
Saturday introductory lessons with instructions at the
public course in the basics of golfing etiquette,” Malina
said. Beginners with our training (whose number has
exceeded 5,000 since starting these lessons in 2012)
receive a so-called Start Card. The Lipiny Golf Resort also
attracts players from Poland. Fifty boys and girls have
regularly attended Kids’ Golf School. The gentleman’s
sport is listed as an optional subject at the Elementary
School Dělnická in Karviná. “Pupils who choose the
subject take lessons at our course,” said Malina.
“2020 is going to be a busy year, too. We have planned
sixty events and public tournaments so far. We will
start with nine-hole Friday tournaments from April 17th.
Let me thank everyone for their favour and support.
We are looking forward to seeing you again in the
2020 season,“ Malina concluded.
