Golf-Club de Sion is located in the heart of the Rhone Valley, spread out over 42 hectares and with the imposing statures of Chateaux de Valere and de Tourbillion tower overlooking the course.
It benefits from an almost Mediterranean climate, with the region having over 300 days of sunshine a year, which means that is open for play all year round - even during the winter.
Golf-Club de Sion was opened in 1995 originally as a 9-hole layout; however the course was expanded to an 18-hole track and completely redesigned by the renowned Swiss golf course architect Peter Harradine in 2002. Today the course plays to a par of 70 and stretches to a length of just over 6,000 yards.
The fairways of Golf-Club de Sion are wide and forgiving, with the putting surfaces also relatively generous – helping to make an enjoyable round of golf for all standards of golfer.
However, Golf-Club de Sion should not be underestimated, especially soon after the hosting a major golf tournament - fairway width is reduced considerably and the semi-rough and rough are grown out – so the difficulty of the course can drastically change.
Golf-Club de Sion is also able to boast a superb clubhouse which houses a newly renovated restaurant. It provides the ideal place to enjoy a delicious regional speciality or just a refreshing beverage on the open terrace, which has stunning views over the golf course.
