The Valais offers the very best for golf. Golfers can choose from among eight wonderful golf courses, nestled in unparalleled landscapes. Snow-clad peaks surround greens. Teeing off is especially delightful with this incredible backdrop. Every course has a unique character – with beauty and obstacles of its own. As a high point of the season, the European golfing elite come together in Crans-Montana (1500 m) every year for the traditional European Masters Cup.
Matterhorn Golf Club (1400m)
The Matterhorn Golf Club course is situated in the valley between the villages of Täsch and Randa, at 1400m, near the internationally famous resort of Zermatt. It offers a gorgeous view to the Breithorn and Matterhorn glacier paradise. The course runs on both sides of the Vispa river. It is an easy course that is almost flat. The Scottish architect, John Chilver-Stainer, has ensured that the 21-acre course site is harmoniously integrated into the natural landscape. Former marshland has been transformed into a lake, including an island that serves as a green!
