22nd Matterhorn Eagle Cup Zermatt

Saturday, 27 July 2013

This tournament doesn’t take place on a normal golf course, but in the Alpine landscape, in the midst of natural surroundings, between Rotenboden and Riffelberg in the Gornergrat area, at between 2800 and 2500 metres above sea level. The 9-hole course fits perfectly into the Alpine landscape. The Matterhorn is always in view. Play is in the original Scottish style – without fairways or perfectly mown greens. Instead there are many obstacles: rocks, cliffs, unevenness in the grassy areas and also «marmot apartments».
