The Club was officially opened in May 1988 with a long drive hit by Severiano Ballesteros. It was soon to gain an excellent reputation in Swiss golfing circles. Our splendid location on banks of Lac Léman, midway between Lausanne and Geneva, the majestic natural surroundings and top quality facilities are some of the reasons for the very complimentary reviews that the Club and its magnificent course have received.
However, despite the lasting imprint left by the Napoleon family, it is unlikely that the Domaine Impérial would have created such intense interest had it not been for Pete Dye’ s outstanding course design. On the short-short list of the world’ s best golf course architects, this great designer knew just how to work with a terrain that lent itself splendidly to a major 18-hole course. He created the course in compliance with the many requirements and regulations imposed to meet ecological and environmental concerns.
Today the Domaine Impérial is the only course in Europe completely designed by Pete Dye and despite these restrictions, is considered to be the best in Switzerland, ranking among the most outstanding on the continent.
Maybe there would have been an 18th green between the clubhouse and the Lake Geneva shore, where one could drop the ball across the lake in France… It is the unique aura of Domaine Impérial Golf Club that inspired the visionaries of 1975, and gave them the courage to fight for 12 years to turn the dream of the club into reality.Golf Club du Domaine ImpérialVilla Prangins, 1196 GlandSwitzerlandPhone: (+41) 0 22 999 06 00Fax: (+41) 0 22 999 06 06Email: email@example.com://www.golfdomaineimperial.com/fr/
