A closer look at Engadine Golf Club
The 1893 founded Engadine Golf Club consists of the two 18-hole Samedan and Zuoz-Madulain courses. The Samedan golf course caters for a range of abilities with its flat terrain, driving range and putting green. Designed by the Canadian architect Les Ferber, the Zuoz-Madulain course is then distinguished by its undulating hills and mountain panoramas immersing golfers in the natural surroundings. By taking part in the St Moritz Celebrity Golf Cup, golfers have the opportunity to play across both of these renowned courses.
Inside Badrutt’s Palace Hotel
The legendary Badrutt’s Palace Hotel lies at the heart of St Moritz with views over Lake Saint Moritz and the surrounding mountains. First opened in 1896, this palatial Alpine property has become known as one of Switzerland’s most prestigious properties, hosting celebrities such as Alfred Hitchcock, Audrey Hepburn and Charlie Chaplin throughout its history. Now the landmark hotel, which is the partner hotel for the golfing event, combines its original splendour with modern luxury in a space encompassing a grand lobby, celebrated restaurants with views of the scenic surroundings and the classic Renaissance Bar, outdoor pools and spa.
In summer, the experience here revolves around outdoor pursuits making the most of the dramatic Alpine landscape, with activities ranging from water sports such as sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing to hiking, horse riding and climbing. At the hotel guests can also make the most of the property’s own tennis and basketball courts, join a yoga session or take a cooking class.
