The initial idea of building a golf course in Ascona started in early 1925, and in 1926 for the very first time the word "Golf" arose in the Patriziale's acts. The Golf Club Patriziale Ascona was officially founded in March 1928. Great care is taken to the constant development and improvement of the course and its infrastructure with the result that the Golf Ascona has indeed an excellent reputation: in 1999 it has been awaeded asthe "Best Golf Course in Switzerland".
The courses 18 holes are beautifully set out in absolute harmony between tradition and innovation. Considered one of the most fascinating courses in Switzerland, the holes wind through the magnificent trees and its beautiful natural setting. The course is flat and technically well planned and so can be easily enjoyed by all levels of players. Access: Only players member of a Golf Union and having a playing handicap not over 30 are allowed to play on Ascona Golf Course. Winter: the golf course is open all year long.
The elegant atmosphere of the Club House is synonymous with "Quality of Life" which has always been the philosophy of the Golf Ascona. The restaurant has an excellent kitchen, and with its large terrace overlooking the 18th hole, is a relaxing place to spend your time after playing or even for organizing an informal business lunch.
