One of Europe’s leading golf resorts is reaping the rewards of a continuous and extensive program of far-reaching improvements. accommodation options and introduced a luxurious spa. He will conclude the golf season by attending the International Golf Travel Market (IGTM) in Rome later this month as part of The PGA National stand.
The ambitious developments, which include six new garden suites due to open next season and the finishing touches to an impressive clubhouse, conclude a program of works to elevate the resort further. More recently, significant changes to the irrigation system that underpins Poland’s only signature-designed golf course have brought presentational improvements during what has been a trying summer.
“In many ways, the investments we have made this year are the latest steps in a much larger plan,” explained Arthur Gromadzki, Chairman of Modry Las. “Particularly for our championship course, the cumulative effect of these projects has allowed us to showcase the course at a much higher level. Couldn’t have asked for a better test of the course and the work we’ve done, especially in the irrigation system. I’m happy to say that we are now seeing the benefits of our investment.”
The summer of 2022 was the hottest on record in Europe, which unsurprisingly affected golf resorts across the continent. Despite the heat, Modry Las Golf Resort enjoyed some of the best playing conditions ever thanks to an extensive sprinkler system and improved control system resulting in lush fairways and flowing greens. The launch of a multipurpose jetty for water sports around the resort’s fabulous Polish lakes was also a welcome addition.
Getting around the extraordinary fairways and endless greens of the Gary Player-designed championship course has also become even more enjoyable with 700 meters of new paved cart paths and additions to the road network around the resort.
The improvements coincide with the release of the latest Top 100 list of Today’s golfer which details the best golf courses and resorts in continental Europe. Specifically, Modry Las is in the top three of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary. “An exquisite Gary Player course designed in a setting that has been compared to Loch Lomond,” the magazine noted.
The timely developments have contributed to a growing list of accolades, including a sixth win at the World Golf Awards in 2021 and a nomination for this year’s event. According to Gromadzki, this recognition is a milestone for the 13-year-old station.
“The Modry Las team have worked to create one of the best golf experiences in Europe,” he noted. “With each passing year, we are proud to achieve our goals and continue on this path. 2022 has been a particularly important year for us for a number of reasons, but none more than being able to emerge from a global pandemic stronger, sleeker and vastly improved.
As if to underline this commitment, the resort’s greenkeeping manager applied his knowledge and experience during the 2022 BMW PGA Championship by supporting the greenkeepers of Wentworth in England.
“It was an amazing opportunity to not only apply my skills and knowledge on another high level course, but also to observe the meticulous preparation required during an elite golf event like the PGA Championship,” said said Wojciech Slupeczanski. “I return from Wentworth with fond memories and full of ideas for Modry Las.”
In a letter of thanks to Slupeczanski, Wentworth Golf Course and Grounds Manager Dan Clarke praised the team effort. “Without your incredible hard work and continued commitment during the Championship, the course would not have presented and played as well as it did,” he said.
In 2019, Modry Las Golf Resort joined a distinguished collection of the best golf resorts in the world under the name PGA National Poland. It will be on display at IGTM from October 17-20, 2022 as part of The PGA National booth.
