The opening of the Mariánské Lázně (Marienbad) golf course was conducted by His Majesty King Edward VII on August 21st, 1905. He solemnly cut the inaugural ribbon, opening the new golf course after which he signed his name in the memorial book of the course with a gold pen to become the first foundation member of the Mariánské Lázně Golf Club. The golf club at Mariánské Lázně is the only golf course in Central Europe with such a distinguished past. The King of England loved visiting Marienbad and made a total of 10 trips to the golf course, the last in 1909..
After years of neglect when golf during the socialist era in former Czechoslovakia barely survived, 1989 brought a speedy revival. The management of the golf course returned once again to the hands of the Mariánské Lázně Golf Club. The historical clubhouse has undergone a thorough renovation, which preserved all its original romantic architectural elements.
The greatest moment in Golf Club’s history came in 2003, when HM Elisabeth II, Queen of the United Kingdom, has granted the Golf Club in Mariánské Lázně the right to use the title Royal Golf Club. In 2005, HRH the Prince Edward visited RGC Mariánské Lázně.
Many international tournaments were held at the Mariánské Lázně Golf Club, most notably the European Tour.
The Golf Course is surrounded by a pine forest. The surrounding picturesque landscape is natural, not harmed by any construction nor buildings.
