“500 people a day come to our golf courses.”


Pit Kälin, who hails originally from St Moritz, has been general manager of Holzhäusern Golf Park since 2007.

Pit Kälin

The man has golf in his genes, having started playing as a teenager in the Engadin on courses in St Moritz, Zuoz and Same-dan – that last course being Switzerland’s oldest. In his free time, Pit can also be found playing tennis and ice hockey, or cross-country skiing in the winter. He lives in Engelberg in the canton of Obwalden (OW).

In our interview, he talked about popular prejudices against the sport and why golf is the perfect hobby for outgoing types who love nature.
