It’s true you may hear the jingle-jangle of cowbells in Switzerland, but you’re also likely to hear the ticking of the most famous Swiss export, the precision timepiece. A country of tidiness, neutrality and fantastic scenery, perhaps Switzerland is the best European all-year-round holiday destinations with wonderful winter skiing and invigorating summer alpine walking. Make sure you taste their chocolate too, it’s mouth-watering and you’ll need a bar or two in your bag to energise yourself for some serious golfing.
Switzerland has approximately 90,000 affiliated golf club members attached to just under 100 golf courses (circa 70 18-holers). It’s not the most obvious European golfing destination but you should make for the Alps and play some dramatic high altitude courses which will flatter your driving distances and make you feel like Tiger Woods for the duration of your stay in this gorgeous country.
