Bonmont was founded in 1990 by Swiss businessman Henri F. Lavanchy. He commissioned world-renowned course designer Robert Trent Jones Jr. to take advantage of the Mediterranean setting. Bonmont is an oasis in a beautiful setting. The first-class 18-hole / par 72 course will test golfers of all levels. Bonmont Golf Course was designed by one of the world's leading experts, Robert Trent Jones Jr. to captivate and challenge those who play it. A golf course, says Robert Trent Jr. "that does not challenge the golfer mentally and physically can be an experience that is easily forgotten, no matter how idyllic the setting". At Bonmont, the exact opposite is true. We have created a true gem of a course, as magnificent as King Solomon's Mines, created from living stone and converted into an emerald oasis with many challenges for the golfer." The course features numerous natural and man-made obstacles: towering ravines, six rock lakes, bridges and more than 90 bunkers and large, beautiful manicured greens.
