Environmentally conscious.Biodiverse

Independent monitoring actions are carried out on a regular basis, and they have confirmed that the golf course provides ecological added value for the Urseren Valley. Many animals have found a new home here, including endangered species. In all, only 26 percent of the 1.3 million square metres of land is used for the golf course. Nearly three-quarters of the area is split between agriculture use and environmental offset area, which includes the cantonal conservation area Bäz. The golf course was designed with nature in mind, and this has led to an increase in the region's biodiversity.

Environment protection measures. Thinking for the long term

The golf course in Andermatt was designed from the ground up to be environmentally friendly. For instance, the tees and greens are drained through a layer of filter gravel and built-in drainage pipes, and ponds serve to regulate the water supply on the course. Pesticides are used very sparingly, and leachate from greens and tees is filtered through an absorbing well in the ground before being released into the water elements. That keeps the discharge of fertilisers and pesticides to a minimum. Energy is completely climate-neutral.
