Panorama Golf Resort / Hut Architektury Martin Rajnis
Text description provided by the architects. Seen from above, the layout of the clubhouse at the Kácov golf course is reminiscent of the leg of a giant golfer. The landscape along the Sázava River captivated investors so much that they decided to build a meeting place for golf lovers. The clubhouse we worked on is the architectural centerpiece of a magnificent golf course.
The clubhouse is located on top of a hill on a bend in the river. We decided to enlarge the peak and create an artificial “crater” of which we used one of the segments for the clubhouse. The visitor therefore enters a closed scene inside the crater, and it is only once he crosses the building that the vast terrace opens up in front of him, with a panoramic view not only of the whole from the 27-hole golf course (river, forest & meadows) but also from the whole environment, including Kácov with its castle and brewery in the valley.
Towards the crater, the building is heavy, made of stone. It opens onto the courtyard via a large wood and glass facade with a projecting terrace, shaded by large wooden wings and covered with glass. The terrace is adjacent to several small lakes that mirror the structure. They also create a soft buffer zone between the greens and the terrace. Through the center of the clubhouse runs a foyer, with a reception area, constructed of massive, roughly chiseled blocks of granite. Passageways then flow off to the sides, leading to the clubhouse facilities, restaurant and hotel.
As well as a generous practice area and holiday camps for children, the course also hosts a series of open championships: the Panorama Golf Tour. A refined environment for sporting and cultural events in the field of first-rate golf is matched by non-traditional and unique architecture.
