Golf Eti­quette

At Andermatt, we embody the spirit of the game of golf: honesty, integrity, and courtesy are hallmarks of the sport. With our golf etiquette, you’ll enjoy a safe, well-paced and fair game.

In the unique environment of the Ursern Valley, with its high elevation and uncommon weather conditions, golf is literally a Scottish experience. Nonetheless, you should leave your blue jeans, t-shirt, and trainers for strolling around town. We also ask that you walk your dog outside the golf course. Repairing pitch marks and replacing divots shows respect for the course and the game.  

Our rules 

Andermatt Swiss Alps Golf Course welcomes all players. We ask that our guests observe the following rules regarding honesty, integrity, and courtesy:

  • All players must check in at the registration desk prior to playing.

  • An official proof of handicap issued by a recognised country association is required.

  • Appropriate golf clothing is required on the course and the practice range. Blue jeans, t-shirts, tank tops, and workout clothes are discouraged.

  • Dogs may first be brought along on the course and the practice ranges starting at 3:30 p.m. Dogs must be kept on a leash at all times everywhere on the golf premises.

  • Golf carts may not be driven by anyone under the age of 18 or by persons without a valid driving licence.

  • Mobile phones must be turned off or switched to silent mode.

  • Tee times must be strictly complied with in order to ensure an optimal flow of play on the course.

  • During high season, the golf course is reserved from 8:00 a.m. to 8:48 a.m. for members of the Andermatt Realp Golf Club who are entitled to play at Andermatt.

  • Rules concerning pace of play and instructions by the grounds staff must be respected at all times.

  • Beginning a round on the 10th hole is allowed only with the express permission of the grounds staff.

  • Golfers are required to tee off at the marked locations that correspond to their level of expertise. If the course is busy, management reserves the right to declare at any time that recommended handicaps are binding. In the case, men with higher handicaps may be requested to play from the blue or red tees.

  • Greenskeepers always have priority around the green when they are working. Divots and pitch marks must be repaired.

  • In non-competitive stroke play, we ask that you play “ready golf”. This means that players should play when they are ready to do so, rather than on the basis of who is farthest from the hole or has honours.
