Slovakia is newest country added to Nicklaus Design’s global collection


The Legend Course at Penati Golf Resort is located in the Zahorie region of western Slovakia.

Nicklaus Design has added a new country to its burgeoning portfolio of global golf destinations, with the opening of a course in Slovakia. There are now more than 370 Nicklaus Design courses in 36 countries.

The Legend Course at Penati Golf Resort, located in the Zahorie region of western Slovakia—considered the geographic center of Europe—is the first Nicklaus Design course in the country and is the first of two 18-hole courses to open at the club. While the Nicklaus Design layout was designed to accommodate golfers of all skill levels, the course is spacious enough to host thousands of spectators and serve as a venue for any international tournament. The course is the centerpiece of a community that offers leisure activities throughout the year, with lakes, cycling and cross-country trails, and a playground.
