Snow and marmots: the unusual challenges behind the preparation of Tignes golf course!
An 18-hole golf course at an altitude of 2100 m? A slightly crazy challenge set in the late 1960s (creation of the course’s first 9 holes), which became a reality in the early 1990s (the addition of 9 further holes), and which has continued to be met with flying colours every summer since. While the players’ smiles say it all at the end of the course, it’s thanks to a team of enthusiasts who roll up their sleeves every spring to breathe life into the highest 18-hole course in Europe after a snowy winter! A huge challenge, quite different to the everyday life of golf courses in the valley.+
