THE GOLF COURSE AT MONT D'ARBOIS
A COURSE WITH A SPECTACULAR VIEW
Located overlooking the village of Megève, at an average altitude of 1,320 meters, the 18-hole golf course of the Domaine du Mont d’Arbois is currently the oldest mountain course. Founded by Noémie de Rothschild in the 1920s with the aim of making the Domaine du Mont d’Arbois a family holiday destination, it was later redesigned by Henry Cotton, a professional golfer. Landscaped in the style of a French garden, the golf course offers an outstanding view from Mont Joly to the Aravis range. The gentle slope of this par 72’s even gradient allows the player to enjoy an energetic swing while being surrounded by a unique panorama.
For the past six years, the Mont d’Arbois golf course has taken an environmentally friendly approach by using non‑polluting methods to promote plant and animal biodiversity and the biological activity of the soil. No fungicide or herbicide products are used on the greens.
The Mont d’Arbois golf course blends into the mountain landscape thanks to its protected fauna and flora and its environmentally friendly management.
The Pro Shop, open every day from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., offers a full range of equipment and apparel for beginner and professional golfers: clubs, gloves, shoes, clothing, and more from a wide range of brands including TaylorMade, Titleist, Ecco and FootJoy, among others.
For convenient access, an underground car park is located just below the club and can be reached directly by elevator from the Mont d’Arbois gondola.
Spread over 50 hectares, the Mont d’Arbois golf course has become a leading mountain course over the years thanks to its fantastic layout and the beauty of the site. Located on a plateau at an elevation of 1320 meters, it can be compared to a flat golf course due to its regular gradient, which allows players to channel all their energy into their swing – and occasionally catch stunning views from the Col de Véry to the Mont Joly range.
The Mont d’Arbois golf course is the scene of many amateur and professional competitions. The Winter Golf Cup is an unforgettable experience in itself: in the middle of winter, on the snow, this mountain golf course is the site of an exceptional competition.
