Message from golf:
It is in the middle of the world capital of mountaineering that nestles this rare pearl that is the Golf Club of Chamonix.
You are at the foot of the Drus, 3754 meters and the Aiguille Verte, 4122 meters, the Aiguille du Midi 3842 meters and Mont Blanc 4810 meters. Imagine yourself treading the fairway of hole No. 17; in focus, to put your ball in play, the north face of Mont Blanc and this cascade of seracs formed by the Bossons glacier. Located at 1000 meters above sea level, this course does not need to imitate the vertiginous slopes that surround it to challenge the emeritus golfers that we are. The famous architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. knew how to play intelligently with the profiles of the field. Minimal gradients and massages with softened slopes will not engage you in a formidable physical challenge.
The Golf de Chamonix swings between its reputation as a course rocked by magic and the glances offered by the impressive verticality of its peaks.
