The 18-hole golf course (Par 72) in Alvaneu Bad makes the most of its unique natural setting by incorporating the surrounding landforms into its course, situated in a very idyllic location in the hollow of a valley, at a mere 950 m above sea level, directly adjacent to the Albula and Bernina line, the UNESCO World Heritage of the Rhaetian Railway.

The first 9 holes lie in a typical river landscape and other existing creeks were directed into four lakes, used for the area’s irrigation and as water hazards. Whilst playing golf, you can repeatedly enjoy the impressive architecture of the Landwasser viaduct.

Nestled in the wide river landscape of the Albula valley, the babbling brooks and still ponds may just spoil your score. If you haven’t “taken a dive” here yet, you can do so after a round of golf at 34 degrees in the sulphur bath of Bad Alvaneu.

Alvaneu Bad is one of Switzerland’s best kept secrets – surprising, really, considering that the readers of the magazine “Golf Leader” voted the idyllic green as their top golf club of 2014 and received the first Swiss Golf Award of 2007. The course is open from April to November.
