You can always hear a cuckoo in Switzerland but they also tick as precision clocks are their most famous exports. A country of tidiness, neutrality and fantastic scenery, perhaps Switzerland is the best European all-year-round holiday destination with wonderful winter skiing and invigorating summer alpine walking. Make sure you taste their chocolate too, it’s mouth-watering and you’ll need a bar or two in your bag to energise yourself for some serious golfing.
Switzerland has approximately 50,000 affiliated golf club members attached to some 100 golf courses. It’s not the most obvious European golfing destination but you should make for the Alps and play some dramatic high altitude courses which will flatter your driving distances and make you feel like Tiger Woods for the duration of your stay in this gorgeous country.
