2 courses, 27 holes

Golfers play in Davos Klosters on two courses harmoniously laid out in the mountain nature. Golfers will find nine other Graubünden golf courses in the nearby area. This selection of courses, golf clubs and golf hotels make holidays in Davos Klosters a summit meeting for golfers.

Especially in Davos, golf is a traditional sport. Already in 1893, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle tried to hit golf balls on an Alpine meadow – but without garnering the understanding or even interest of the local rural population. The British erected the first golf course in 1927 at the spa gardens in Davos. In 1960, the internationally renowned architect, Donald Harradine, built the current location, a 9-hole golf course with a driving range. One part of the golf course was the former Davos airport. In 1966, the property was modernised and extended to a18-hole golf course, in 1988, by about 1.4 hectares and in 2009, again, by 1.8 hectares. Designed by the internationally renowned Les Furber of Canada, the 9-hole golf course at Klosters was built in 2004 to facilitate a diverse and exciting game of golf.

“The balls fly further up here”

The recently retired professional golfer Fabienne In-Albon (31) explains in an interview why it is worth persevering. And what she really thinks about playing golf in Davos Klosters.

 

Fabienne In-Albon, what was it like at the start?

Sluggish. Really sluggish. I simply struggled to have any success. 

Water starts are the first obstacle with kiting. What is it with golf?

The handicap licence test. Normally you’ve got it within three months, at the most within a year. Rather like driving, you really need a practice go before the test – maybe two. By contrast, I needed two whole years and four practice goes. My talent remained hidden for quite some time (she smiles).

What motivated you to keep on going in spite of this?

My brother. Back then, my only motivation was to be definitively better than him. The plan failed: he was awarded his handicap licence to play on golf courses after three months. However, I didn't allow myself to become dispirited and continued practising. And suddenly it came: a real feel for golf. A turning point.  

Back to your beginning: You attended the Davos Sports Academy and often played golf up here. What is it that sets golfing in Davos Klosters apart?

Davos and Klosters are two “alpine golf courses” – but not in a negative way. They are both very demanding golf courses. But they both have one thing in common: they both nestle beautifully within their surroundings. 

Do you prefer to have a caddy or not?

I was always with a caddy when I was playing as a professional. Nowadays, I have to carry my bag myself (she laughs).

Talking about your golf bag: what is your favourite club?

It’s always changing. It was often the driver when I was playing professionally. It has the longest shaft and is intended for the longest distances. I am someone who plays very precisely. I don’t hit as long as some of the others, but generally make up for that by playing very precisely. That is one of my strengths.

And your weakness?

Bunker strokes: 30 to 60 metres. Luckily, I tend to play tactically and precisely so that I very rarely land in bunkers.

And finally: If Davos Klosters were a golf club, what kind of club would it be?

A putter. It’s the smallest club in the golf bag, surrounded by all the big clubs. Playing golf in Davos Klosters has a certain charm and the gold courses nestle wonderfully within the mountainscape – rather like a putter in the golf bag.
