Golf & Country Club de Bonmont


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

Where2Golf says: 

Golf & Country Club de Bonmont: Few golf courses offer such spectacular views of Lake Geneva and the Alps beyond, than you'll find here at Chateau de Bonmont. Located in the shadow of the Jura Mountains, the stylish Chateau is home to a small 4-star hotel as well as the clubhouse.

The well-maintained golf course makes full use of attractive parkland terrain that slopes downhill, away from the Chateau towards the Lake. The opening par-4 takes you down the hill (the first of three such journeys), while the par-4 2nd brings you straight back up again to play a stretch of holes around the Chateau. Two of these are the shortish par-3 3rd and even shorter par-3 7th, where an attractive reed-lined pond must be carried from tee-to-green.

The dramatically plunging par-5 8th is one of the most scenic and challengingly tight holes, not least if attempted from the back tees. It is again followed by a climb back up to the Chateau, and a water-defended double-green at the uphill par-4 9th. Like the 8th, the par-4 10th is played downhill from an wonderfully elevated tee (with views to savour), and takes you down to the rest of the back-nine, which thankfully occupies the layout's flattest terrain. Here the course is a mix of open spaces, small lakes and some tree-lined fairways, which give things a pleasantly varied parkland feel.

The final climb back up to the Chateau comes at the par-4 18th, where you'll revisit the double-green it shares with the closing hole on the front-nine, and have an opportunity to enjoy more of those wonderful lake and mountain views.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.

Did you know?

Within the grounds of, and directly opposite the Chateau de Bonmont, is Bonmont Abbey, which dates back to the 12th century. The Abbaye de Bonmont was the first monastery established in Switzerland to join the Cistercian order. In 1536, the Protestant government of Bern secularized the abbey and demolished most of the buildings, except the church, which was transformed into a granary, a bakery and other secular functions. The church is now owned by the canton of Vaud and is used primarily for concerts of Gregorian chant.
