To all golf lovers, you will necessarily find something to suit you. Indeed, the region offers a wide range of Golf Clubs to discover, with courses with original and well-kept landscapes that offer beautiful greens.
Less than 30 minutes away, the nearest is the Golf d’Aigle, which is in fact the Golf Club Montreux. Located below our valley, near Lake Geneva, easily reachable in 30 minutes, this golf course benefits from the climate of the Rhône plain with a sensational view of the Alps.
It’s an 18-hole course. Its length is 6207 meters and its altitude is 395 meters. The club is open all year round, regardless of the season. It is often described as the most beautiful Golf in the Alps, lulled by fresh air and bathed in sunshine. It has the advantage of being flat and offers a very diverse and selective game.
The Golf Club Montreux celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2000. It was inaugurated at the beginning of the century, already in its current location. The course is bordered by magnificent secular trees such as oaks, chestnuts, beeches, pines and birches.
Renovated in 2004 by a renowned architect in the field, the course has preserved its character. The flora was very dense; the architect was able to bring a more modern touch: the layout of the greens revisited, undulations, bunkers, mounds along the fairways; the appearance of ponds, deforestation to reveal the mountains as well as the extension of the circuits thus adapted to the starts of most championships.
