Fairway To Heaven, Golfing in Geneva, Switzerland

by Jim Weaver

Located at the foot of the Swiss Alps, on the shores of beautiful Lake Geneva, the cosmopolitan city of Geneva, Switzerland, is truly a welcome destination for golf enthusiasts. Within easy reach of Europe's major cities, the climate in Geneva is amazing. Average summer temperature is a balmy 78 degrees, perfect weather for a round of golf on a championship course and there are a tempting selection of three magnificent courses just minutes away.

Golfers will adore Geneva. Here you’ll find the Golf & Country Club de Bonmont, the most famous in Geneva for its technical difficulties and stunning views (18 holes, 71par); Golf du Domaine de Divonne, the most spectacular 18 hole championship golf course (72 par), and the Golf & Country Club de Bossey, with views over the Lake Geneva (18 holes, 71 par).

Set against the towering backdrop of snow capped peaks, with the shimmering waters of Lake Geneva nearby, few fairways and greens can compete with the golf experiences afforded by Geneva.

There are many fine hotels in Geneva and concierge staff are more than willing to secure tee times at area golf courses. Begin your travel plans at and .
