Patriziale Ascona Golf Club

Switzerland, Crans-Sur-Sierre
Course Opened: 1957

The Golf Club Patriziale Ascona was officially founded in March 1928.

The initial idea of building a golf course in Ascona started in early 1925, and in 1926 for the very first time the word “ Golf “ arose in the Patriziale`s acts.

Plans for building the course were laid out in 1926, with full planning for 18 holes on 50 hectares and with a course length of 5324 meters. In a short time work began and the first four holes were soon completed.

For the Verbano region the 30`s are a period of great change. Ascona in particular is becoming internationally known as a very beautiful and cultural town.


Even at the beginning of its activity, the course in Ascona is considered the “nicest 9 holes in Europe “ and in the following years many great events will improve this reputation.

In 1932, architect Roelli designed the first Clubhouse and British architects Colt & Alison map out the second 9 holes, that with the assistance of architect C.K. Cotton will create 18 holes to open in 1957. During the creation of the second 9 holes the course itself is redesigned, concentrating on a beautification project including the planting of many trees and flowers that today give it its wonderful character and certainly make it one of a kind.

In 1933 the lease contract is assumed by the Golf Club Ascona-Locarno that will manage activities until 1960, when the Patriziato of Ascona will replace it and give birth to the Golf Club Patriziale Ascona.

During the 60`s and 70`s the clubs quality grows thanks to an excellent international reputation, renown golf professionals and more frequent visits of famous guests.
