Golfplatz Alvaneu
Path of the Pioneers 13: From the hoe to the golf club


Man has shaped the landscape in the Albula Valley. Agriculture has created a rich cultural landscape. The edges of the fields are overgrown with species-rich hedges, and flower-rich semi-arid grasslands have formed on the former terraced fields. Piles of reading stones are still visible on the former edges of the fields: for centuries, farmers piled up stones there that they had collected from the field. Reading cairns, which are not yet overgrown, are now a home for lizards and snakes.

More recent is the landscaping for the Alvaneu golf course. For the 18-hole course, the terrain was partially modelled, and new ponds and ponds were created. Thanks to the construction of the golf course in 1996/97 and 2001/02, Alvaneu also reopened the sulphur bath. The municipality only allowed the construction of the golf course on the condition that the centuries-old spa tradition, which ended in 1962 with the closure of the former spa, was revived.
