Pros: Absolutely stunning views.
Elevation and steep slopes offer unique challenge.
Free to play.
Restaurants and beer houses located near a couple of holes providing facilities, water refill, food etc.
Beautiful wildflower meadows.
Discs loaned from the ski-lift station near hole 1,
Cons: You'll feel it in your legs the next day.
Long hike up to the first tee unless you pay for the cable-car/ski-lift pass.
Spotters necessary due to wildflower meadow and roll aways.
Tee pads were uneven rubber mats.
Not beginner friendly (the slopes demand decent angle control).
Other Thoughts: We got a bus (free with local B&B booking) up to the cable car station and bought a day pass up the mountain. The cable car takes you to hole 18 where there are some facilities. Then a ski-lift (same ticket) can take you up to hole 1 where there is a kids playing ground, restaurant, viewing platform, and access to other walking routes.
We played only once in glorious sunshine but unfortunately a summer thunderstorm rolled in the next day and we didn't want to be up on the mountain with the lightning flashing down.
The Zell-am-See area is a popular tourist destination and so there is a wide option of local places to stay and eat. The traditional Austrian cuisine is fantastic after the hike down the course.
It was worth the trip from Germany for the weekend. Really enjoyed it.

Great downhill course
Pros: Some of the best views of any course in the world.Not a lot of work because its mostly down hill. Excellent signage ;very easy to follow and not get lost or be confused.the "pro"holes and teepads added a lot to the difficulty.signage was in German and English which helped to correctly play ob,mandos,and island holes. Did I say amazing views?
Cons: Access can take a while if the lift running to the top is closed.took us 45 min to reach hole 1 from the lift that was open and took 1.5 hours to walk the rest of the way down.(both lifts that give easy up and down access closed sept 15) there is some difficult down climbing on some holes with no defined trail(pro hole 2) teepads are decent but not completely flat and in some cases steeply sloped down or up.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed this course for what it was. Decent mix of fore hand backhand straight and overhand shots required. Rubber tee mats were surprisingly easy to throw from. When the lifts are running access is much easier. This holds up with some of the better mnt courses iv played in Colorado. In an area with few courses(only 15 in the whole country) this is a fun course with some awesome vistas worth playing for sure.
