Robert Trent Jones, Jr.

Access

Yes, from Monday - Friday (except public holidays).

Construction of the Golf de Bossey began on 6th July, 1982 under the direction of Robert Trent Jones Junior.
This American architect, of world renown, has returned to Bossey many times to check on and enjoy the course.
From a wooded and hilly terrain, he had the genius to design and build the Golf de Bossey, which is now considered one of the golfing jewels of the Leman region. Located at the base of the Salève, this technical course requires qualities of precision, endurance and concentration.

The course is open March to November, seven days a week. During the winter approximately 10 holes remain open using winter greens. The course is accessible to members having paid their "Golf" subscriptions. A member may invite guests on weekdays, and weekends when there is no competition. The course is open to green fees on weekdays only. The course measures: 5951 metres from the white markers, 5524 metres from the yellow markers, 5088 metres from the blue markers and 4646 metres from the red markers and can be characterised as technical due to its topography.

Although at only 15 minutes driving distance from the city center of Geneva, Bossey is actually so hilly that it is a kind of mountain golf course (much more than Crans Montana for instance) with a beautiful clubhouse. The view over the city and its countryside is wonderful. Due to the steep hillside location, playing 18 holes there is physically demanding, if not exhausting, which explains why Bossey is considered as the most sporty golf club of the area – and rightfully so. Albeit rather short, the course packs in some serious challenges. No matter where the ball is hit, the fairway does not have a flat surface to play from. The back-nine includes three monsters par three (12, the superb 14 and 16) between 185 and 220 meters. And, of course, the fairways are extremely narrow. The key to score in Bossey is to play conservative, to keep the driver in the bag and to focus on hitting accurate shots. For various reasons, the course is not easy to keep in good conditions; under such circumstances, the maintenance is excellent (but cannot be compared with Geneva GC, Maison Blanche or Domaine Imperial).

Nice and well designed course which has taken the best out of a difficult landscape. Very well maintained with fast but fair greens. It is advisable to be fit if you decide to walk the course.
