The course was created between the end of 1939 and the begining of 1940 according to designs made by local artist and hotel owner Alois Chocholáè and a well-known Czech golf course architect J. Charvát. In the early 1960´s the course was not maintained and it was nearly forgotten. In 1968 a group of Brno GC members worked hard to reopen seven of the former nine holes. The course was completed into a nine hole course again in the middle of the 1980´s. The course is laid out in a beautiful part of the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands and it is situated inside the National Reservation area. The picturesque scenery of the country attracts not only golfers and tourists but also various artists, especially painters. Svratka Golf Course is home course of GOLF CLUB BRNO 1932.
Comments from Mark Lawrence, Easthampstead Grange, Bracknell, Berkshire, England
I have played this course on various occassions and have had a great time. The course is not so long but beware of the greens. I am fortunate to live in an area of England that has courses like Wentworth Sunningdale and Stoke Poges very near to my house. The greens at Svratka are faster than those at any of those courses mentioned. I am a 6 handicap player and only managed to shoot 4 or 5 over on 9 holes. This is a beautiful course, and should be played as part of the 10 things a golfer should do in his life. Have fun.
