There are two 18 hole courses in Verbier. One is very near the centre of town and is called "les Moulins". This is a pitch and put, par 3. It goes uphill from the start, quite steeply and the greens are small which makes it very challenging for the short game. Greens fees in 2008 were 30frs/round. The other "les Esserts" is above the village and you will need to take a bus or drive to the Club House. Once there the golf club operates a shuttle bus to take you further up the mountain to the first tee. You then work your way down the mountain and finally the last 4 holes are about a 500m walk from the 13th green along a road. The 18th green is below the Club House. Since this is a mountain course it is only open June-October. Conditions are not great in June (it is a ski slope in the winter!) and it takes a while, and good effort on the part of the greenskeepers, to get it back in shape. The best time to play it is July and August. There is a driving range near the first tee.
The first tee is short but very uphill and across a little river. You then go down to the 2nd hole but have to walk uphill again to the 3rd tee. After that all the holes are downhill of each other. The fairways are quite narrow and often a ball from say the 5th fairway ends up on the 6th which is below it and you then have to hit it back up onto the 5th!!
The views from the course are absolutely stunning. Overall it is a relatively difficult course and one must be prepared to loose a lot of balls!
