Sporty swings and turns between glacier, mountain, and lake
The Ski & Golf World Championship in Zell am See-Kaprun promises a unique fusion of skiing and golf from 8 to 12 May 2024. Top athletes from all over the world compete in both sports to win the unique title of Ski & Golf World Champion.
Zell am See-Kaprun, famous for its wonderful alpine scenery and first-class sports facilities, serves as the backdrop for this spectacle. Athletes put their technical skills to the test on the challenging pistes of the Kitzsteinhorn, and compete with speed and endurance in the giant slalom in the skiing part of the World Championship. Leaving the snow-covered pistes behind, the athletes switch to the golf course, where precision and tactical skill are required. The region's golf course boasts a spectacular backdrop with view of the majestic glacier. Participants battle for victory on the green of the Leading Golf Course Golfclub Zell am See-Kaprun.
The giant slalom takes place in the Kitzsteinhorn glacier ski resort. With its wide pistes covered in natural snow and stunning views at over 3,000 metres, this ski resort makes winter sports fans' hearts beat faster from autumn until well into spring. Venue of the golf tournament is Golf Club Zell am See-Kaprun. Boasting a view of the Kitzsteinhorn, the only 36-hole Leading Golf Course in the Austrian Alps is the perfect place to tee off as part of the Ski & Golf World Championship.
Amateurs who are members of a regular member club affiliated with the Austrian Golf Association (ÖGV) or a foreign national association, and who have a World Handicap Index (WHI) of max. 18, as well as teaching and playing pros, are eligible to take part.
