Overlooking the village of Megève, at an average altitude of 1320 metres, the 18-hole golf course at the Domaine du Mont d'Arbois is today one of the oldest stylized Alpine golf courses..
It was back in the 1920s that the Baroness Maurice de Rothschild made the Domaine du Mont d'Arbois into a privileged mountain holiday location. But it was her son, the Baron Edmond de Rothschild, a golf enthusiast, who was behind the creation of the Mont d'Arbois Golf Course in 1964, entrusting the layout to an expert, Henry Cotton.
The Baron Benjamin and his wife Ariane de Rothschild continued this family tradition by transforming and modernizing the facilities of the Domaine du Mont d'Arbois, which now counts several hotels and restaurants.
The Mont d'Arbois Golf Course is the setting for numerous amateur and professional competitions, the most well-known being the Pro Am ‘Baronne Maurice de Rothschild’, the Clarke Trophy ‘Chefs’ Cup’, and the ‘Green Velvet-Domaine du Mont d'Arbois’. The Snow Golf Cup is an event in its own right since, at the height of winter, the snow-covered course is specially prepared for an exceptional competition.
The Pro Shop is open daily from 9am to 7pm and proposes a full range of equipment and clothing for beginner and professional golfers: clubs, gloves, shoes, and other clothing items, branded Taylor Made, Cleveland, and Polo Sport, to name but a few.
The Club’s terrace and sun lounge with comfy deckchairs are perfect for relaxing, lunching or dining after a round of golf, or relaxing while waiting for friends to turn up.
The Mont d'Arbois cable car
Open during the summer season, it carries non-golfers, walkers, mountain bikers, and paragliders, amongst others, up to an altitude of above 1800 metres to enjoy their favourite leisure activity.
To make things even easier, there is an underground car park just beneath the Club, with a lift that takes you right to the entrance of the Mont d’Arbois cable car.
