Type

Inland, Forest

The imposing appellation of this club located halfway between Lausanne and Geneva references the fact that Emperor Napoleon III spent some time at the manor house here at the center of what were then the grounds of a grand estate. Pete Dye's design for the course acknowledges the history of the place while at the same time being thoroughly American in style. Thus his layout, which has matured since debuting almost three decades ago, blends in with and makes good use of the landscape as it works its way in part through thick woods and in part over pastureland, and offers panoramic vistas of Lake Geneva, the Jura Mountains and the Alps beyond. The challenges come in the form of imposing bunkering, carefully positioned trees and abundant water. At 6339 meters, the course is long enough to keep good players entertained, though it lacks the teeth for championship play.

Domaine Imperial is considered as one of the best golf courses in Switzerland. There are two distincts loops of 9 holes, the front nine located in a superb forest and a more open back 9 with a few long par 4’s. You will easily recognised Pete Dye’s influence with smallish and well contoured greens, with its big and aesthetic bunkers, and a mix of short and risk-reward par 4s/ 5s and some longer and challenging holes. In terms of design, the par 3’s aren’t as good as thereat, which is the only disappointment. Domaine Imperial is usually in pristine conditions despite being one of the busiest private clubs in Europe. It also boasts of the most impressive clubhouse in Europe. The Napoleonian House is located on the shores of Lake Geneva and offers stunning views. All in all, Domaine Imperial is a must play in Geneva area...

The Domain Imperial is located in a former property of the Emperor Napoleon’s family. The clubhouse offers a spectacular view over Lake Geneva. Maybe, the expectations are just too high. The lake cannot be seen from the golf course which is littered with countless bunkers (many of them being purely decorative). Moreover, the layout is inconsistent without this being obviously a choice of the designer (P. Dye). Basically, there are two different golf courses. One, the front-nine, is a brilliant parkland will old trees. On the other hand, the treeless back-nine is rather dull with wide and long back and forth fairways. Nevertheless, it should be noted that Domaine Imperial always has excellent course conditions and pristine greens. Make no mistake, overall, this is a very good golf course, but not the best in Switzerland and not even the best in the Geneva area.
