With twenty courses between the Haute-Savoie and Geneva nestled between lakes and mountains, our golfers are exceptionally privileged. The quality of the courses is important to the reputation of Geneva and the Haute-Savoie. The region’s courses of Domaine Imperial, Bonmont, Lausanne, Cologny, Bossey, Maison Blanche, Evian, Chamonix, Megeve and Annecy have plenty to delight golfers.
The history of Esery (or Aisery) goes far back in time as this village owes its existence to the Gallo-Roman villa "Asiciacus" as it was on its ruins that the fortified château belonging to the Sacconay family was built in the 16th Century. This site, which overlooks the Arve valley, was chosen at that time for its unique and strategic position.
It is hard to imagine what Esery’s château was like back in the Middle Ages. However, we believe that it was quadrangular, flanked by four round towers, one on each corner, and defended by a gatehouse with a machicolation.
Today, only two towers pierced with arrow slits remain. They overlook a courtyard where the mansion once stood and which is now home to the current Golf Club House.
Château Saconnay was owned by many different families over the years including the Ador family of Geneva and the Vidonne family who farmed the land from 1790 until 1990 when Golf Club Esery was built.
