A wonderful hike around the Severiano Ballesteros Golf Course, a legendary 18-hole course where the renowned Omega European Masters are held every year. This very easy walk benefits from an exceptional setting and offers a breathtaking view of the Rhône valley.
The hike begins at the Miedzor restaurant, whose terrace overlooks the golf course. This picturesque walk is accessible to all, including those with buggies – indeed, the sun-kissed circuit is particularly popular with families at weekends. The Severiano Ballesteros Golf Course is one of the oldest and most beautiful in Switzerland, and has welcomed some of the biggest names in the sport. When you reach the “Snow Island” section of the course, you’ll discover a true paradise for kids: beginner’s ski pistes, snowtubing, sledging and the “Maison de Bibi”, which offers a host of free events and activities for children. Parents can relax on sun loungers on the terraces at the snack bar (which also has an indoor area) or the performance centre (an indoor golf facility).
You then make your way along the far end of the Etang Long lake, a particular favourite amongst ice-skaters. You will arrive at the Sporting, a restaurant with a sunny terrace, bringing you almost right back to where you started.
The Severiano Ballesteros Golf Course is legendary. The Omega European Masters are held here every year and welcome a host of renowned players. The course is also considered one of the world’s most beautiful, thanks to the exceptional view of the surrounding peaks.
