Welcome Message


On behalf of the organising committee for the fifteenth World University Golf Championship, I would like to extend our most cordial greetings to the members of the national delegations, the players, and their travelling companions.Welcome to the Crans-Montana high plateau in Switzerland!

We would like to thank the FISU; the SUSF; the federal, cantonal, and municipal authorities and their dependent associations; the sponsors; and our promoters and volunteers for their vital support in helping to make this world competition a reality.

Hosted by the Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club, the tournament will be played on the Severiano Ballesteros course, which was renovated by the golf legend in 1998. Every year it attracts the continent’s best players for the Omega European Masters. No one doubts that it will offer the elite players of the university sports world an opportunity to show off their talent and experience some of golf’s great moments.

It is my sincere wish that this championship will unfold in a fine spirit of good sportsmanship and, more specifically, in full compliance with the rules laid down by the governing bodies of university sports.
