SWISS Golf Traveller Trophy

Play yourself onto Switzerland's loveliest golf courses and the final of the popular tournament series. The competition is open exclusively to SWISS Golf Travellers with a maximum handicap of 36.0. Secure yourself one of the limited places for the qualifying tournaments now.

Tournaments in 2017

There are two changes to the SWISS Golf Traveller Trophy 2017. New players with a maximum handicap of 36 can now play in the qualifying tournaments. We are offering a 9-hole qualifying tournament for players with a handicap between 37 and 54. This is because we would like to invite even more SWISS Golf Traveller members to play in one of our tournaments.

This year, we are collaborating with our golf travel partners Golf and Travel and knecht reisen to take you to various dream destinations that are easy to get to with SWISS and Edelweiss. Come with us on this exciting journey, and find out more about the loveliest golf hide-aways on the planet.

The fee for the 18-hole tournaments is CHF 150. The entry fee for the 9-hole tournament is CHF 100, and is only for players with a handicap of 37 or higher. Registrations with a lower handicap will not be considered. Fees for companions and caddies will be settled separately on site. You are welcome to contact SWISS Golf Traveller for information on fees and charges.

The finalists will be selected in eight qualifying tournaments (one 9-hole and eight 18-hole tournaments). The four best in category in every tournament and the winners of the gross scores for ladies and men are automatically set for the final. These players must be present at the awards ceremony in order to qualify for the final. If a qualified finalist cancels their registration for the day of the final, the invitation will be passed on to the next player in the ranking.
