For keen golfers you can take a day trip to Crans-sur-Sierr Golf club and Chamonix both of which are only a 45 minute drive from Verbier.
Crans-sur-Sierr Golf club is located at 1500m and overlooks Rhone valley. The club is open from May to October and has 4 courses, including the famous 18 hole, named after its prestigious creator, Severiano Ballesteros, classified by golf magazines as one of the nicest in the world and host of the European Masters.
The golf course in the Chamonix valley is situated next to the village of Les Praz. Constructed in 1934, originally with 4 holes, it was officially opened on the 20 July 1935 with 9 holes completed. It was only in 1972 that the council agreed to allow a further 9 holes. So 10 years later, on the 26 September 1982 it was relaunched with 18 holes. The course was designed by Trent Jones Senior.
The golf course features numerous bunkers, water holes, woodlands and streams, but is on flat ground. Only two teeing grounds are on a hill!
