Anyone can play golf at a high level or recreationally, for performance or for fun. Golf does not have any limitations. Golf is a phenomenon in the fact that in no other sport a beginner can enjoy and achieve top performance.

In the neighbourhood we have nine golf courses, four of which are directly on the city outskirts just a ten-minute drive. The beginnings of golf in Karlovy Vary date back to 1904.
