The new restaurant building was constructed in modular timber construction and can be reused at a new location after the opening of the definitive restaurant in 2023.

Fire on Golf Sempach

In the night from January 18 to 19, 2021, the catering building at Golf Sempach burned to the ground. Other buildings such as the clubhouse with reception and the caddie hall remained unscathed. The fire investigators of the Lucerne police were able to quickly clarify the cause of the fire. Due to maintenance work by craftsmen on a terrace, during which a gas burner had been used, a smouldering fire started in the insulation. This smoldering fire developed into a full fire, which completely destroyed the building and the inventory. Translated with (free version)
