Josef Poetter Golf works on the Golf & Country Club Zurich

The traditional Golf & Country Club Zurich, located in the municipality of Zumikon, has commissioned German architect Thomas Himmel (Himmel Golf Design), together with a team consisting of two renowned golf course construction companies - JOSEF POETTER GOLF and Goeldi AG - with the redesign and restoration of its 18-hole championship golf course.

The first phase of the construction of 9 holes commenced in May 2016. Final completion is scheduled for autumn of 2017, with all 18 holes expected to be playable again in 2018.

The improvements to the nearly 90-year-old course are meant to prepare the entire course for the challenges of the future. A thorough facelift of some fairways, the restoration and redesign of all greens, tees, bunkers and a complete irrigation and drainage concept are planned.

British golf pro Tom Williamson designed the course in 1929 in the English championship style. Situated 685 metres above sea level, the par-72 course is characterised by beautiful surroundings and the superb view of the Zurich countryside.
