The golf course in the central part of the race course has a long history. First design, which was not realized, is from 1983. Another attempt to use the space between wicker hurdles is from 1992, but this was not the last phase of development of the local course, either. The course got its final form, which we can see now, in 1998 when nine holes were created and, subsequently in 2000 the golf course was standardized.
It is a very short course which does not have, compared to common courses, any super elevations and the main hazards and bunkers are the race ones. As the hippodrome has, besides the race course, even diagonal joins, greens are situated only in free sectors which are not used for horse racing. The longest hole is Nr. 3 which is 506, or more precisely 472 metres long, par 5, and it is the most difficult one. The tees are behind a water hazard, moreover golfers have to overcome double crossing of race courses. Other holes are shorter and have between 90 and 260 metres.
With respect to the fact that it is a course integrated into the race course, you must realize that golf is an additional activity here. Nevertheless, it is still a course and it requires maximum accuracy from golfers which can be set right by an emergency hit in many courses, but in Slušovice it is not possible. Background for golfers is in the restaurant which is situated in the course platform.
The course has par 62 and is used by the Slušovice Golf Club.
