Golf Resort Tále
Golf resort Gray Bear is the first 18-hole master golf course in Slovakia. The golf course was opened on August 8, 2002. Professional golf player and the captain of the Ryder Cup Tony Jacklin cut the symbolic tape. He likes its unique and beautiful nature scenery, original environment and design. The golf course was designed by American company International Golf Course Design from South Carolina and designers Bob Walton and Skip Malek. Shaping of the golf course was performed by the Scottish company Southern Golf Ltd., UK.
The scenery of the mountain valley has lots of natural beauties, creek beds, rocky boulders, massive firs and spruces are its natural dominants. Design of the 6.3 km (3.9 mi) long golf course is clear and all holes are correct, even though its level of difficulty requires respect of players and precise play with irons.
Gray Bear is a golf course requiring walk; tees are in a short distance from greens which remarkably copy the terrain. Typically hard playing surfaces are covered by a mixture of fescue copying the grass which can be found also on the golf courses of British Open in Scotland, UK.
Golf course Gray Bear confirmed its high professional level even during the most prestigious golf tournaments in Slovakia: European Championship of Seniors in the category Masters, EGA Challenge Trophy Boys in July and August 2006 and Allianz Ladies Slovak Open 2010, 2011 and 2012.
