Engelberg Golf Course

Although classified as an alpine golf course, the Engelberg course is situated on level terrain, providing both golfers with higher handicaps and advanced players with a real challenge.

Mario Verdieri of Grison, who has wide experience in designing golf courses, has integrated the fairways into the natural surroundings with great sensitivity.

The greens are well protected by bunkers and water hazards. Each of the 18 holes has its own character and poses a real challenge to all players.

Golfers can enjoy unique panoramas of snow-capped mountains in two directions.

Kussnacht am Rigi Golf Club

This attractive 18-hole golf course situated centrally in the heart of Switzerland is diverse and challenging to the beginner as well as the handicap player. This fascinating golf course has been embedded into the hilly moraine landscape between the Lake of Zug and the Lake of Lucerne.

In Kussnacht am Rigi the well-known golf course architect Peter Harradine has built a spacious 18-hole, par 68 course with a total length of 5,397m. The invariably challenging holes offer a unique experience for every golfer. The fairways pass through the various small valleys of the moraine landscape and some of them are bordered on both sides by old-growth forest.

All facilities of the golf course Kussnacht am Rigi are perfectly groomed and exquisitely maintained. WWF oversaw the construction right from the start and upon its completion the course was awarded the title especially environmentally compatible and nature-friendly sports and leisure facility.

Sempachersee Golf Club

Golf Sempachersee is located at 690m above sea level in Hildisrieden, a former alpine health resort aptly called the sunning terrace of Lucerne The town is usually above the foggy mists in autumn and affords a magnificent view into the distance in clear weather.

The 18-hole course is a par 72 and has a total length of 6,161 meters. With the courses well-staggered tee markers, the degree of difficulty can be varied substantially. A round played from the markers furthest from the hole is the tournament version of the course whereas recreational golfers can enjoy a relaxing round in scenic landscape teeing off from one of the closer sets of markers.

Engelberg The Village

The village is characterised by the imposing monastery and the collegiate church. There are still about 30 monks living and working here today. The Mountain of Angels, as the founders of the Benedictine monastery called the place in 1120, is a popular excursion destination for people travelling from nearby Lucerne: the journey to Engelberg by road or narrow-gauge railway can take as little as one hour.

Eating Out

Engelberg has a great range of dining with over 55 restaurants to choose from. Surprisingly, although it is not connected to any other resort it still can boast a great international mix. There are, of course the normal great fondue and Raclettes places you’d expect to find but also dotted in between these classics are French, Italian and Chinese places.

Evening Drinks

Engelberg is not known as a mad party resort in Switzerland. The heavy histories of the monasteries keep the resort grounded and conservative. Having said that almost all of the restaurants have bars attached to them and then on top of that there are more dedicated nightspots.
