The centurion Lucerne Golf Club was established in 1903 and lays claim to being the third oldest golf club in Switzerland. Today’s 18-hole mountain course is set at an altitude of nearly 700 metres, and is located just one kilometre to the north of Lake Lucerne.
Architect Jeremy Pern set out the course at Golf Club Les Bois in two phases; the back nine in 1995, then the front nine four years later. The 14th to 16th in the pine trees is a renowned as a particularly strong sequence of holes.
The 18-hole course at Golf de Lavaux is a 1999 Peter Harradine production that’s complemented by a 6-hole academy layout at this quintessentially Swiss club where the Alps provide an ever-present backdrop.
Dating back to 1964, the hillside course at Hittnau-Zürich Golf & Country Club is one of only a handful of Swiss designs from the drawing board of Bernhard von Limburger. In more recent years, both Donald Harradine and Kurt Rossknecht revised the layout, most recently in 2016.
Formerly a 9-holer, the course at Golfpark Zürichsee in Nuolen 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.
