Megger Bauern als Initianten des Golfplatzes
The initiative to build a golf course in Meggen started in 2003 by five farmers and landowners.
Under the general pressure on income in agriculture and the farms being too small by today's standards, the idea to realise a golf course matured. To this end, the farmers founded the "IG Golfplatzprojekt Meggen" and pursued their initiative further.
Two projects to choose from
So years later, the farmers had two golf course projects to choose from. On 1 July 2008, they unanimously decided in favour of Josef Schuler's public 9-hole golf course project. The Küssnacht entrepreneur and former farmer has a great deal of experience and managed the golf course in Küssnacht for years.
Attractive local recreation area
With the lease, the farmers are making the 52-hectare area available to golf and all recreation-seekers as an attractive local recreation area.
In addition, jobs have been created on the golf course, which opened on 25 August 2017, enabling the farmers to continue tending their land. Thus the circle closes again for the benefit of many.
