An Environmentally Friendly Golf Course

Megeve, France

Spread across 50 hectares (125 acres) and only a five minute drive from Four Seasons Hotel Megève, the Golf du Mont d’Arbois has become a leading name in mountain golfing, offering a high-quality course in a picturesque location.

Several years ago, Steve Muller, Greenkeeper at the Mont d’Arbois golf club, began taking care of the golf course in a new way, to encourage biodiversity and develop the biological activity of the soil. Using natural products to treat the soil, free from herbicides and fungicides, the aim was to cultivate the different types of grass that grow naturally in the mountains as they are better adapted to deal with the varying weather conditions that the course is exposed to. By recycling vegetal waste to create organic compost and by taking care of the surrounding trees, the Golf du Mont d’Arbois course enjoys a naturally beautiful landscape and blends seamlessly into the mountainous surroundings, thanks to the flora and fauna that remain unspoiled and the eco-friendly approach to managing the environment.
