Golf in St. Moritz3 courses, 45 holes
Playing golf in Engadin calls for great concentration – when playing that decisive shot, the breathtaking natural surroundings can prove quite distracting.
In 1890 British visitors set up one of the first golf courses on mainland Europe on a meadow between today’s St. Moritz train station and the district of St. Moritz Bad. Soon thereafter, holidaymakers flocked to join the St. Moritz Golf Club. The sport took Engadin by storm. And continued to grow: in 1893 an 18-hole course and the Engadine Golf Club were set up in Samedan. Under the direction of Canadian golf course architect Les Furber, a further 18-hole course was added in Zuoz-Madulain in 2003. Today, St. Moritz and Engadin are among the most famous golfing destinations in the Alps. Allow us to briefly introduce the three Upper Engadin golf courses.
Interesting and challenging 9-hole golf course. One of the highest golf courses in Europe, just a 5-minute walk from the centre of town and nestled amongst the Engadin mountain landscape. At the Golf Academy, experienced pros help individuals and groups perfect their swing. Golfers must obtain a permit before they can play on the course.
Engadin Golf Samedan
The 18-hole Samedan golf course is set against a unique Alpine panorama. Old larch stands, lots of small streams and lakes make it a charming place to play. But don’t be mistaken, this is no walk in the park. All the greens are well defended by bunkers, trees and water. New training infrastructure with a driving range with around 40 tees, a pitch and chipping area, as well as a large putting green.
Engadin Golf Zuoz
Strength and endurance are important on the 18-hole course at Zuoz-Madulain. Unlike Samedan, this course rolls up and down throughout all 18 holes. As he drew up the design, golf architect Les Furber was convinced that even the most discerning golfers would love his work. Suffice to say, he was right.
