Every summer in the city centre, the City of Geneva offers residents and visitors the chance to play a round of golf free of charge. An 8-hole course about 4 km long allows you to rediscover the most attractive sites around the bay while enjoying a fun sporting activity open to all.
Today, golf is no longer reserved for an elite group: the urban version is designed for all-comers and can be enjoyed freely and informally in the city’s parks, promenades and gardens. It is an ideal occasion to combine a physical activity with a moment of relaxation while strolling around a park or taking a break by the lake shore.
Principle of the game
Urban golf is played in pairs and the aim is to complete 8 holes in as few shots as possible.
Where and when can you play urban golf?
Urban golf is organised from 3 July to 20 August 2023. It is open 7 days a week, from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. but not available in case of rainy weather.
The course starts in Parc des Bastions, where the equipment is distributed in the hut next to the Bastions kiosk (Place-Neuve entrance).
Groups of more than 10 people are asked to complete the reservation form below and return it to the Youth Department.
The equipment (clubs and balls) is distributed free of charge at the start, in Parc des Bastions. The golf equipment is managed by young people within the framework of the summer activities organised by the Youth Department.
An example of local sport
This activity is managed by the Youth Department and supported by various partners. Urban golf is organised as part of the launch of local fun and sports projects developed within the different districts of the city in order to encourage people to participate in fun, physical activities.
