Maison Blanche Golf & Country Club


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.

Where2Golf says: 

Maison Blanche Golf & Country Club: Nestling between the western end of Lake Geneva and the Jura Mountains, and straddling the French-Swiss border, you'll find a small but excellent collection of championship golf courses. Together with the highly-rated Domaine Imperial, one of the best is Maison Blanche. Like neighbouring Divonne and Bonmont, this is a layout that offers wonderful views of the forested Jura range, while your golf game is given an enjoyable but thorough examination.

Occupying partly-open and partly-wooded terrain in a quiet and wonderfully natural location, many holes include some degree of elevation change. The generally good-width fairways will give long hitters confidence from the tee, but trees and long, uncompromising grass awaits anything hit too far offline. The short, dog-legging par-4 5th and good-length par-5 9th are the most dangerously water-threatened holes on the front-nine, while the back-nine par-3s (at 12 and 15), the snaking par-5 11th and testing par-4 18th all bring water into play on the inward loop.

Maison Blanche's combination of a wonderfully scenic, natural and well laid-out course, seems to combine with its proximity to Geneva to make this one of the area's busiest member-courses. As a weekday visitor, you'll certainly need to check for tee-time availability before rolling-up, and, like many courses around Geneva, be prepared to pay a fairly hefty green fee.

Did you know?

The Jura Mountains are a small range located north and west of the Alps, in France, Switzerland and Germany. The name is derived from the Celtic word "jor" meaning forest. The range climbs to a maximum elevation of 1,720 metres (5,643 feet), and has given its name to the French department of Jura, the Swiss Canton of Jura, and the Jurassic period of geologic time.
