Philipp Ripper (18, StV: 4.4), Member of GC Zell am See-Kaprun Saalbach / HTL student: »Beautiful locations and tremendous views!«
When I started golfing eight years ago in tow of my father and grandfather, my ambition was immediately spurred on and for me it was training, training, training. On the one hand, I benefited from the excellent golf school and the training facilities, but above all from the variety of the courses: two championship courses, 36 holes, with the whole range of challenging fairways, tricky greens, tricky water hazards, roughs and bunkers.
In the meantime, my focus is more on relaxing and coming down after school, for example in a family flight with my parents and brother. But the club team is still a high priority for me, and I enjoy it when we have a good time alongside all the sporting ambitions during training and on the rounds, not least of course in the fine club restaurant.
I am fascinated by the great maintenance of the golf course - which also predestines it as a "Leading Golf Course". For me, apart from the visual aspects, the high quality is noticeable in the fact that you lie beautifully after every shot - provided, of course, that you hit the fairways or greens. And on the way to the ball, you can enjoy the tremendous view that opens up here between glacier, mountain and lake!
With sporty greetings!
