 How can we pay with low fees?

We suggest using a service like Wise to send money between countries with low fees. You can most likely save enough to make it worth it by signing up. The link above leads to a UK version, but just click the flag icon on the top right to change to your local region for prices and setup instructions.

 When was it again?

The event takes place from May 13th (Monday arrival day) through May 17th (Friday after the banquette). In the Chinese year of the duffed wedge: 2024.

Please explain the package again, like I’m an 8-year-old….

Welcome party at the golf club on Monday evening.
Accommodation for 4 nights in the hotel, based on double occupancy and breakfast is included.
3 rounds of golf, halfway house included.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, there is an incoming snack included consisting of a drink and a small bite.
A shuttle between the hotel and the golf course is included all day long.
On Thursday evening, we have the normal price-giving ceremony and dinner.

Can extra nights or extra golf rounds be booked in advance?

The local organizing committee is looking into possible deals for those who like to come early or leave late.
If you want to play an additional warm-up round on arrival day, we ask you to contact the organizing committee and not the club directly.
We will keep updating the home page with any new information as soon as it is available.

Are transfers to and from the airport included in the package price?

No. At this time transfer for everyone is not a part of the package.
The event takes place relatively centrally in Europe and is within driving-adventure distance for many teams.
The organizing committee will provide transfers directly between the airport and the hotel, at an additional cost. The price and time table is still being worked on, so we need to get back to you on that.
Also: the public transportation network is excellent in Switzerland and offers many options for those of you who want to handle the transfer yourself.

Will ECGC 2024 really be held in Switzerland?

Since you voted for us—you bet! 🎉

About that. What about the food?
I’ve heard things and I have a trained palette...

Is it true that Swiss people only eat cheese—more accurately ”Schwiitzer schtinke Chääs”?
Not at all. While fondue traditionally contains up to 98% traces of cheese, it’s not all cheese. You can for instance sprinkle some paprika powder on top.
And if you really don’t like fondue, you can always fall back to raclette. Admittedly, this is also mostly melted cheese, but it’s sort of grilled. And we don’t eat raclette until lunch, which—since farmers rise early—starts at 07:30.
Before that, we are serving ’müesli’ which was developed specifically for the metally ill, who eat like mice.
You’ll fit right in. En Guete!

So when will you launch the actual webpage and get rid of this crap?

We feel your pain. We are colluding to trick the webmaster (and truly, the word ”master” is used in its loosest meaning) into a dungeon, after which we will throw away the key.
Things will only get better at that point.
