The jewel of Crans-Montana
"It is the most beautiful hole of the year, and by far!" Grégory Havret, the leader after the first round, spontaneously let out on Thursday. This declaration only wants to make you do one thing: go back to the hole described, number 7. No one has never regretted moving it. The beauty of the panorama, already omnipresent throughout the course, is even more outstanding upon arrival at hole number 7. Located at the edge of the course, this hole offers a 180 degree view on the surrounding summits, including the majestic Weisshorn. Under, there are several chalet rooves that you can see, before the vertiginous plunge into the Rhone valley. This par 4 is also spectacular with its five bunkers, which do not stop certain players from taking big risks. "From the start, it is too tempting to directly attack the green", acknowledges, still yet, Grégory Havret, author of a fabulous eagle on Thursday. It should also be said that the enchantment of this hole number 7 is here to stay, for spectators and players alike. Isn't this correct, Mr. Havret?
