Verbier is a lovely alpine village just over an hour's drive from Chamonix. In winter, Verbier is a busy ski resort attracting people from around the world. In summer it is an active town for climbing, cycling, hiking, paragliding and golf. In the winter the 18 hole course is buried under ski pistes until the snow clears in April and May.
It is usually open from May until November (depending on snow conditions). This panoramic golf course has views of Mt Blanc and the Grand Combin. The course starts at 1600m dropping to 1400m at the club house.
How to get to Verbier from Chamonix?
Follow the road to Martigny crossing the Swiss border at Chatelard. At the bottom of the Col du Forclaz turn right at the roundabout towards Verbier.
Verbier is signposted at the first major intersection. Either take the cable car from the village below Verbier or continue to drive up the mountain side to the town itself.
