About

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.

The course at Golfpark Zürichsee in Nuolen was re-opened in 2018 as an 18-hole layout, after a two-year expansion by Kurt Rossknecht. Fourteen holes were either added or changed, with five of the new holes occupying what was formerly a gravel pit. It will be interesting to see if this modified track features in our next chart update for Switzerland.
