The Woodside course was the first of two 18-hole layouts to be built here at Sempachersee. It opened in the mid-1990s and served the members for over a decade before the addition of the 18-hole Lakeside course transformed Sempachersee into the largest golf complex in the country.
The 14th century Battle of Sempach between the knights of Leopold III, Duke of Austria, and the army of the Old Swiss Confederacy took place on a site very close to Sempachersee. Don’t expect a slaughtering on the Woodside course however as it could never be described as a hostile track.
In fact, fairways are generally forgiving – though they will tighten up over time when trees mature – and water hazards are sensibly positioned so visitors should be able to enjoy a relaxing game of golf in the heart of the Swiss countryside.
The recent course expansion project also included the construction of one of the sleekest and stylish clubhouses that you will ever come across. Set on a ridge that overlooks the fairways below, its appearance has been described as one that “oscillates between the rural warmth of a timber barn and the clear lines of a Maserati sports car”.

“It has become appealingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity”- Albert Einstein.
GEC is all set to put to rest the fears of Einstein. As a leading media& corporate events house we root ourselves to the belief that, we bind the industry together, every day. Whatever we do is a collective and connective initiative towards the betterment of our industry, humanity and society at large because at the end of each business day, we retire as human beings and every morning we wake up to do something special that makes us feel human while being human.
