Kulm Course, St. Moritz, Engadine, Switzerland Switzerland

The Engadine has been known for more than 100 years as the golf paradise of the Alps, distinguished by an unequalled panorama and incomparable landscape characteristics. The Kulm Course St. Moritz is nestled harmoniously in the high alpine landscape, thus making Pitch and Putt there a unique experience.

Players discovered the Kulm Park as early as 1891 as a golfing landscape far out of the ordinary. The oldest golf course in the Alps soon gained international fame and thus became the meeting place for those wishing to improve their handicap.

The St. Moritz golf architect Mario Verdieri and the Kulm Hotel drew up a new concept for the historic greens in 2001 and brought the course up to date for today's needs. Nestled in the captivating Engadine mountain landscape, the new 9-hole golf is both appealing and demanding. The site, one of the highest in Europe, now has a course uniting the original landscape with high-tech architecture.

The Kulm course is affiliated to the Swiss Pitch and Putt Association. Last September SPPA organised the first Pitch and Putt Challenge on this course. Kulm also hosted the Swiss National Championship in 2006. For this championship Kulm installed new Tee boxes to shorten the course length. The next Pitch and Putt Challenge will be organised at Kulm on 13th September 2009.

The par 27 course and its practice range, with 16 teeing grounds and two putting greens, offers both beginners and experts challenges enhanced by the magnificent view of the lake and the beautiful high valley of the Engadine.

For improving the short game, there is a practice area with a putting green, a bunker and fairway from which to make approach shots of up to 60m (65yds).
