The most beautiful greens all in one valley: golfers in the Engadine should really wear blinkers – so as not to be distracted by the stunning scenery during a crucial shot.
The prophets came to the mountain: At the end of the 18th century, English spa and holiday guests prompted the mowing of an 1,860 metre stretch of mountain meadow to form a fairway. In 1891, the first 9-hole golf course was created next to the Kulm Hotel in St. Moritz. It became today's Kulm-Golf-Course. This makes it the oldest golf course in the alps, possibly even of the continent.
This was followed in 1892 by an 18-hole course in Samedan, for many years the highest situated in Europe. The Engadine Golf Club was founded in 1893, joined in 1902 by St. Moritz Golf Club to form the oldest golfing association on the European continent. The Samedan Golf Club came next, followed by the Zuoz Golf Club in 1998. Engadine St. Moritz is the golfing paradise of the Alps offering 5 courses and over 60 holes in total.
