Andermatt Swiss Alps

The Andermatt golf course is now open!

As part of the opening tournament with about 80 celebrities from sports, government, business and the golf world, the Andermatt Swiss Alps Golf Course was inaugurated on 25 June 2016. The symbolic tee off of the official opening was done at 8:00 in the morning by eight golfers simultaneously: Fabienne In-Albon (playing proette), Hansi Hinterseer (ski pro and schlager singer), former Federal Councillor Adolf Ogi, André Bossert (golf touring pro), Pirmin Zurbriggen (ski pro), Didier Défago (ski pro), Tanja Frieden (snowboard pro), and Bernhard Russi (ski pro and president of the Andermatt-Realp Golf Club).

Conditions on the golf course were perfect on Saturday and the players were enthusiastic. After about five hours of play, they returned to the golf clubhouse in good spirits, where they enjoyed refreshments and discussions of their game. Samih Sawiris, who does not play golf himself, mingled with his guests and was delighted with the many words of praise the golf course received.

The closing of the successful tournament day on Andermatt Swiss Alps Golf Course was held at The Chedi Andermatt. But before the guests were able to enjoy their well-deserved dinner, the ranking announcement ceremony took place. Bernhard Russi and Samih Sawiris as host presented the best golfers of the day their well-earned prizes – from holidays in El Gouna to green fees for golf courses of the region.
Next weekend the residents of the Urseren Valley will get their turn: On Saturday, 2 July 2016, the opening of the course and the golf clubhouse will be celebrated with an open door event. From 3 PM to 7 PM, visitors will be able to have a behind-the-scenes look at the golf clubhouse on a guided tour. There will also be introductory golf lessons on the driving range and golf experiences for young and old on the golf course. Food and drink will be served in the festival tent, and at 4:30 PM the golf course and golf clubhouse will be officially inaugurated with a festive ceremony.
