Hi

Do you know you need a licence to play golf in Switerland? If you already have an official handicap, be sure to bring proof, its the only way to avoid having to take the exams!!!!!

The alternative is to play in France they don't worry too much and its also cheaper.

Good Luck
What is it about Switzerland making it what seems to me unwelcoming and difficult to play games? I have a friend who wanted to play in a bridge competition here and although he was a strong player with a good record in Australia which is a far stronger country in bridge than Switzerland, he nonetheless had to jump through hoops.

I'd love to understand what is the underlying philosophy behind the attitude.

Not typical Swiss, you have to have the same in Germany (or the Netherlands I think) before you can play golf (Platzreife) or be able to show your handicap certificate

So, maybe a typical European thing. In Australia we are always such excited little vegemites when people come to visit, although I can't speak for golf, I'd be surprised if it wasn't like bridge which is very welcoming.
