In the midst of the Valais Alps and on the way to Zermatt lies the “Parkland Golf Course” of the Golf Club Matterhorn at an altitude of 1,420 m above sea level. Built by the Scottish architect John Chilver-Stainer, the golf course was harmoniously embedded in the surrounding mountains. The magnificent panorama is impressive: from the club restaurant terrace, as well as from many tees, the Breithorn and Klein Matterhorn are always in view.
All nine holes are on mostly flat terrain. The course has six holes with water hazards, which make the game technically and tactically interesting.
The 9 hole plus concept is unique: 9 greens with 18 sets of tees, hence front and back nine are played from different tee boxes. So you can play on the 9 hole plus course like on an 18 hole course.
