It has been prepared by EIGCA student, Jakub Cervenka.

History of Golf CZE

The first two Czech golf courses were established at the turn of the 20th century. The first was in Karlovy Vary established 1904, and a nine hole course in Mariánské Lázn? opened the following year. Both golf courses used primarily by foreign clientele and golfing in the Czech Republic only started to gain in popularity before the First World War when the well known Ringhoffer family converted some of their land near the village of Volešovice into a golf course later known as the Ringhoffer Volešovice Golf Club.
