Our tailored golf holiday is perfect for the golf addict! There are 8 magnificent golf courses situated in the Valais canton of Switzerland. A luxury golf paradise that has become a favourite destination for international golfers, the Valais offers four 18-hole courses at Verbier, Sion, Crans-Montana and Loeche (Leuk) as well as five 9-hole courses at Sierre, Crans-Montana, Riederalp, Matterhorn and Source du Rhône. On the plain or in the high mountains, highly competitive or just for fun, flat or rolling terrain, each club offers a unique experience for the perfect golf holiday in Switzerland.
Golf widows don’t despair! The Hidden Dragon Spa awaits you instead! Or day trips to the local towns (and shops!) near the golf clubs can be arranged.

The finest golf course in the Alps! Indeed the Severiano Ballesteros course (formerly known as Plan-Bramois) has forged a worldwide reputation for excellence.
