Pristine and responding green.. front 9 are not that interesting as the back 9 are. I liked the last 3 holes, par 4 16th a dog leg right around a pond. Long hitters with at least 220m carry take the short cut with water in play and have a 135m second to the green. Par 3 17th is tricky to play because it is long (180m), the water hazard to the right and a bunker to the left with the sloping fairway to the water. So keep it to the right side. And the long par 5 18th with water in front of the narrow semi island green, a challenging hole. Very modern clubhouse and friendly people. Once in the area its a challengin course to play.

Since July 2015 Golf Club Montfort Rankweil can be considered as a proper 18 hole course. The club had some tough years to start with. The construction of the first 9 holes was delayed significantly as there were some environmental concerns raised and politicians started to doubt the benefits of a golf course. Especially as the land is one of the most fertile parts of the state and farmers had some serious opposition about the course. Finally in 2005 the first 9 holes were opened and the result was pretty promising. Yes, a proper clubhouse was missing and yes, the other 9 holes were missing. But still. 3 years later some additional 9 holes were added provisionally. The new holes 1-9 didn't have any bunkers and the water hazards didn't really have any water. So the two 9 hole loops played completely different. But that all changed with the opening of the newly built and completely redesigned 9 holes last year. Yet, the two 9 holes still play differently. The first 9 holes are relatively short and narrow. But the penal rough is much more in play then on the holes 10-18. As mentioned previously the land of the golf course is very fertile so the rough grows heavily. Add the prevailing wind and you face some pretty penal golf course design were you can lose plenty of balls! Once you finished the first 9 holes you will find the second and original holes 10-18 much more open and playable. And more fun. At least in my book. The best 3 holes of the course are at the end of the round. The par 4 16th hole is a dogleg right with water guarding the entire right side of the hole. If you are a long hitter you can try to chew off as much as you dare with your tee shot. The 17th hole is a long and hard par 3 with water guarding the green on the right side. There is a nasty bunker about 20 meters in front of the green which grabs a lot of balls that can't carry the distance. Arguably the best hole is the finishing par 5 18th hole. You will need to carry a ditch about 150 meters from the members tees. With the prevailing wind I've seen many people not being ably to carry this distance. And there's also not really any room to lay up. The hole is usually a 3-shotter as the green is an island-green guarded by water. Even the longest hitters usually don't try to hit this green in 2. It's the hardest hole of the course and a very good hole to end the round. Once you have finished your round make sure to have a drink in the clubhouse. On a sunny day the views are spectacular from the raised patio. Overall Golf Club Montfort Rankweil is a decent course in a nice surrounding. The penal rough will make you lose a couple of balls if you stray from the tee and usually make rounds less fun and slow as people will look for their balls. The club is aware of this issue but so far isn't willing to do anything about it.
