Biography

Dezsö LAUBER

Dezsö Lauber competed in the 1908 Olympics in men’s singles tennis and in the 1924 Olympic Arts Competitions. An architect by trade, his co-design for a stadium won a silver medal together with two-time Olympic swimming champion Alfréd Hajós. He was active in multiple sports, including bobsleigh, ice skating, golf, cycling and tennis. In fact, Lauber has a tenuous connection to the 1936 Olympics in another sport, golf. There was a golf exhibition in 1936 at Baden-Baden, loosely considered an exhibition event and Lauber competed in it.

Lauber, a construction engineer, designed and built the first golf course in Hungary at Tátralomnic in 1908-09, and the first Hungarian tournament was held there in 1909. He later became secretary of the club and also served as secretary of the MOB (Hungarian Olympic Committee) from 1906-15. Lauber was a multiple Hungarian golf champion and was a three-time champion of München, at the time considered one of the top titles in Europe.
