Golf Mountain, the world’s only pop-up golf course, returns for a second round

The world’s first ever pop-up golf course, Golf Mountain, located on the pretty meadow plateau of Engstligenalp in Adelboden launched last year and was such a success that it’s back this year for a second round.

News of the pop-up golf course spread far and wide last year, resulting in one American tourist – who was on a 10-city, 14-day tour of Europe with his wife – leaving her to do the sights of Frankfurt alone, while he took a 1,000km round trip to Adelboden by taxi, simply so he could experience Golf Mountain for himself.

The pop up course is open for a limited period only; it closes on 16 October 2011.  So, if you want to secure your chance to play the world’s only natural pop-up golf course, book now.
