Snow Golf World Championship

Ok I'm officially jealous of this guy, how do you get invited to the Snow Golf World Championship. Apparently it held ever year at a place with lots of snow in Austria(I wonder if they've ever thought of using Canada before we're part of the world). Well Alex over at Golfer's Delight has had the pleasure of attending before. This year it's being held at Obertauern (Austria), one of the snow-richest places in Austria.

In 2008 it will be a two player scramble format. The entry fee for a two man team is 500 EUR for the team per team (plus tax), this will cover the tournament, participation in the players night and champions nights parties. Travel and lodging go extra.

Date: January 24-26, 2008

Venue: Obertauern, Salzburg, Austria

Play format: Two Person Scramble team valuation under Stableford Rules (9 holes). Two golfers form a team.

Player’s Field: max. 65 teams (130 amateurs)

SNOWGOLF arena “Gnadenalm: The 9 hole Championship Course (Par 35) is built into the landscape around the “Gnadenalm”, creating a dreamlike snow-scape in Obertauern´s impressive mountain region. The snow fairways are prepared by snow machines, with out of bounds set by natural deep snow. The putting surfaces (“Whites”) are prepared by hand.
