Course starts and finishes at the base of a glaciated U shaped valley and climbs onto the winter ski slopes. The Lauterhorn mountain can be seen best from holes 16 and 17 and the 600 + yard par 5 15th follows the route of a downhill ski run. Some greens here are hard and you have to plan the approach shot carefully to hit the correct part of the green. It's a fair course though and low scores are possible as demonstrated recently! Great photos as usual from Vic showing the lovely mountain views here. Enjoy!

I started off really liking this course. It gave me some options off the tee and required some creative thinking. Then came a few holes which seemed to be a bit crazy with some really big elevation changes on holes of over 200+ feet. There were also some greens with very severe slopes that are fine for where the pin is placed in this round, but would not be capable of having a pin anywhere else. Finally there were a few holes where in severe winds, Like number 13, if you are hitting into the fairway before the bunker, you have trees there which means you would have to play an extreme cut to get onto the green, even from 130 yards out.
Overall I did enjoy playing the course. I think it could be something that we could see on tour, but there are some tweaks needed to expand landing areas, removal of some trees and gentling the slope of some greens. I would really like to suggest another reviewer try this course out. I love the speeds of the greens, they were butter smooth. I did have some stuttering and I’m playing on my big machine, so I’m not sure how it will be for console players.
Hole 3 – I love the fact that it is fully uphill from tee to green. A nice change.
Hole 13 – If you decide to play it short of the bunker on yoru tee shot, you can’t get over the trees to go for the green, so if there is heavy wind in your face, there is no way to go for the green without a hard fade.
