Swiss please!

2016 06 Bad Ragaz
Golf Ascona | Switzerland

Giardino Ascona has become Ticino’s premier golf resort as it now enjoys direct access to the course at Golf Ascona, allowing guests to roll out of bed and straight onto the fairway.


Giardino Ascona and Golf Ascona, set on the banks of Lake Maggiore in the Italian-speaking canton of southern Switzerland, benefits from a unique micro-climate that creates temperate, balmy weather that allows the golf season to run until well into October.

Established in 1928 as a nine-hole layout, Golf Ascona soon became a meeting place for local businessmen, wealthy tourists and celebrities who chose this little slice of paradise at the foothills of the Alps as their regular golf spot. Soon, the course became known as ‘the nicest nine holes in Europe’.

A later expansion to 18 holes by Harry Colt and Charles Alison saw the course evolve into a classic, tree-lined parkland track
that weaves its way down to one of Europe’s most famous lakes against a backdrop of magnificent Alpine mountains.
