Golf de Lausanne

Golf Club de Lausanne was founded in 1921 with nine holes and was expanded to eighteen in 1931 by Hermann Narbel. During WWII the course was reduced to nine holes, before going back to its original design in 1947. In 1962, the club was able to buy an abutting farm and land, which allowed Hermann Narbel and Donald Harradine to redesign the course by lengthening some holes, planting most trees seen nowadays and creating three new holes (today’s 11th, 12th and 13th). The club finally brought in Jeremy Pern in 1996 to modernise the layout.

Situated only a few kilometres outside Lausanne near the north shore of Lake Geneva, this hilly parkland course has most holes routed through woods of majestic chestnut, birch and fir trees. Old-fashioned short par fours at the 7th and 12th holes are more than matched by long par fives to close the front and back nines, giving the course an overall length of 6,197 metres from the tips. The views to the distant Alps add a thrilling perspective to playing at Lausanne, contributing greatly to the experience of teeing it up at such a classical parkland golf course.
