Location

VERONA GOLF CLUB, SOMMACAMPAGNA, ITALY

Located on the outskirts of the city center, the Verona Golf Club is a demanding course nestled amongst the vineyards of Custoza.
Set in a perfectly intact landscape, it is an itinerary of choice in traditional golfing.
The Golf Club Verona is considered one of the most prestigious Clubs combining the beauty of the Course with the charm of its Club House and its long tradition.

FRASSANELLE GOLF CLUB, ROVOLON PD, ITALY

The 18-hole course, designed in 1990 by architect Marco Croze in a wonderful nineteenth-century park of over 200 hectares, presents great suggestions and is rich in flora and fauna.
The playing field is surrounded by a pleasant landscape of the Euganean Hills and it is just few kilometers from the famous thermal spas of Abano Terme.
Large open spaces, forests, and lakes, strewn along the way, soften and beautify the landscape and make the game more challenging.
Unforgettable is the 15th hole, a par 3 of 150 meters, which crosses the big lake and the green comes enclosed in a frame of majestic trees.

GOLF CLUB ALBARELLA, ROSOLINA, ITALY

The Royal Hague Golf Club, as it is known in English, is the oldest golf club in Holland and was founded in 1893 on linksland that was destroyed during World War II.
The club’s current course was actually designed by Harry Colt for a wealthy Dutch golfer in 1938, who then sold the layout to the homeless golf club in the late 1940’s.
The return takes shape in a bright and sporty plain designed around a 2,5-hectare lake.

CIRCOLO GOLF VENEZIA, VENEZIA, ITALY

The club was founded in 1928 and was a classical Scottish links course on the sandy dunes of Alberoni one of the first in Italy.
Today it is a technically very demanding course with many trees, which makes the game very interesting. In the middle of the course, there is an old Venetian fort, whose walls are elements of numerous holes and therefore offer a varied scenery.
