Golf vacation with Golf Alpin

Top flight: The Sonnhof is geared towards golfers from head to toe

Leisure is essential for a successful game of golf. If you’re not completely focused and put everything non-golf-related out of your mind for a while, you won’t make the personal cut. Maybe that’s why we’ve developed a special love for golf. In any case, one thing is certain: undulating terrain, lots of chicanes and extra lush greenery – golfing in the mountains has its own special charm. This is especially true here.
