Fantastic layout and spectacular scenery put this sumptuous resort top of the ‘must visit’ list
IF YOU’RE on the lookout for a treat then look no further than Crans Montana, home to the perfect European golfing experience. Perched high above the Rhone Valley and set against the dramatic backdrop of the mighty Matterhorn and Mont Blanc mountains, Crans Montana is not one to shy away from attention.
The host of the Omega World European Masters at the beginning of September each year, golf has a long history in the resort.
The first club - the legendary Crans-sur-Sierre - opened in 1905 and recently added a state of the art indoor golf performance centre.
The resort boasts golf courses designed by two of the best-known people to have ever played the game - Seve Ballesteros and Jack Nicklaus. Ballesteros’ design is the only 18-hole on the resort, which also boasts a Nicklaus-designed nine-hole course as well as two further nine-hole challenges - the Noas and Super Crans - both of which are open to players of all levels.
On top of that, there’s also indoor golf practice facilities, an exclusive practice area in front of the hotel, private golf cars and the hotel’s own luxury spa.
