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.
Riederalp Golf Club (2000m)
The golf course is situated on a plateau high above the Rhone valley, in the village of Riederalp, which offers views of all the 4000-metre summits of the Valais Alps. The quality of the greens is very good due to the mild, sunny climate and automated sprinkling system. A young stock of trees and various small lakes on the course present challenges to the golfer. The layout of the grounds resembles a park within a beautiful mountain landscape.
