Situated in the southwest corner of Switzerland where Lake Geneva flows into the Rhône River, Geneva is rated as one of the cities with the highest quality of living in the world. Just outside this modern metropolis, close to the French border, lies the beautiful parkland course of the Golf Club de Genève.
One of a select few European courses designed by Robert Trent Jones outside his main golfing centres of expertise in Italy, Spain, Portugal and France, the Geneva course was opened in 1972.
It enjoys stunning panoramic views across Lake Geneva and features many tree-lined, dog legged fairways, generously proportioned greens (especially the shared putting surface at the 9th and 18th holes) and water hazards at several holes – the best of these is the 176-yard, par three 17th hole where many a good round has come to grief.
