Designed by the architect Philippe Valant in 1968, the course offers views of the surrounding mountains. Players can expect to land some impressive shots thanks to the natural obstacles, such as gullies and streams, that dot the fairway. The start takes place simultaneously on the different holes of the course (shotgun), in scramble formula (by team of 2 players). The professional golfer and Haut-Savoie Adrian Saddier playing on the European circuit, who will be training in Tignes, will lead demonstrations and share his experience.
Measures have been put in place to save water and reduce environmental impact, such as the use of liquid, mineral, organic fertilizers and natural seeds. The lawns are maintained mechanically to promote soil aeration, and the products used are approved and comply with environmental standards. In addition, the golf course leaves parts fallow to preserve biodiversity, with the presence of many marmots and an active breeding area. Mowing waste is reused as fertilizer on the course, and watering is reasoned thanks to an automatic system programmed at night. Golf de Tignes also uses electric cars and electric mules for gardeners, reinforcing its commitment to sustainability.
