Cigar-friendly golf courses

Sobienie Królewskie is a high-end golf resort just outside of Warsaw in Poland. The design of the golf course is a combination of typical Mazovian country side with a twist of Scottish links-elements. While the terrain of the course is quite flat, the challenge reveals itself on the complex greens, where putting skills are put to the ultimate test. The course fairways, however, are wide, and suitable for golfers of all skill levels. The absence of hills makes the course easily walkable, even for senior players. The centerpiece of the Sobienie Królewskie clubhouse is a large bar, which offers a wide choice of food, and also a nice selection of cigars for players to enjoy after their round of golf. The cigar menu consists mostly of Cuban brands, which are hugely popular, especially among visitors from the US. The club offers a nice outdoor patio to enjoy your after-round smoke. For rainy days, the upper floor of the clubhouse also includes a 20-seat library room equipped with a state-of-the-art HD television set, poker tables, and a pool table. “The library room is popular among the club members, but it’s also available for rent, to larger groups like stag parties, etc.,” says Sebastian Centkowski, who is responsible for managing the international groups visiting the club. Sobienie Królewskie also offers accommodation in an old, noble palace building situated nearby. The main palace hall dates back to the late 1800s but is now a fully renovated 150-bed hotel and conference center, which includes a spa and a luxurious restaurant.
