Panorama Golf Resort / Hut Architektury Martin Rajnis
Text description provided by the architects. From a bird’s eye view, the club layout on the Kácov golf course resembles a giant golfer’s leg. The landscape along the River Sázava so captivated investors that they decided to build a meeting point for golf fans. The clubhouse we work on is the architectural centerpiece of a beautiful golf course.
The club is located on the peak of a hill in a river meander. We decided to expand the peak and create an artificial “crater”, one of the segments we use for the clubhouse. The visitor thus enters a closed scene inside the crater, and only when passing by the building does the extensive terrace open in front of him, with a panoramic view not only of the entire 27-hole golf course (Rio, Floresta & Meadows), but also from all around, including Kácov with its castle and brewery in the valley.
Towards the crater, the building is heavy, made of stone. It opens onto the countryside with a wide wood and glass facade with a protruding terrace, shaded by large wooden fins and covered by glass. The terrace is adjacent to several small ponds that mirror the structure. They also create a soft buffer between the greens and the terrace. Through the center of the clubhouse runs a foyer, with reception area, built in massive blocks of coarsely chiseled granite. The passages then run sideways, leading to the club, restaurant and hotel facilities.
In addition to a generous training area and summer camps for children, the course also hosts a series of open championships: the Panorama Golf Tour. An exquisite setting for sporting and cultural events on the first-rate golf course is combined with unique, non-traditional architecture.
