Near Nyon and close to Lake Geneva, the Golf Club Domaine Impérial owes its prestigious reputation to its location, history and excellent course. The 17th century property that houses the club house used to belong to the Napoleon family and the course was designed by Pete Dye, one of the top golf course architects.
Nestled between Lake Geneva, ancient trees and the Promenthouse river, the Golf Club Domaine Impérial is blessed with an idyllic setting, in one of the last big natural areas with direct access to the lake. Opened in 1988, the golf course was created by one of the world’s top golf architects, Pete Dye.
Open from March to mid-December, the course welcomes visitors with a handicap from Tuesday to Sunday. Monday is for members only. Budding golfers can have lessons and use the practice area.
The club house located in the 19th century Villa Prangins is one of the special features and attractions of the Golf Club Domaine Impérial. Prince Jérôme Napoléon, cousin of Emperor Napoleon III, bought the house in 1859, after which it passed through several hands before once again hosting the important people of the day in the 1920s. Today, it houses a gourmet restaurant, lounge, brasserie, conference room and bridge lounge.
