Golf in Italy


The entire terrain of Italy is perfect for the popular sport of golf. The fact that many Italian cities provide a golf course adds to the probability of finding the perfect spot for golfers of all levels. The choice is huge — ranging from challenging mountain terrains to charmingly historical sites.

For golf aficionados, the beauty of the country and the choice of golf courses make for a perfect combination. The stunning natural landscape of Italy provide a choice of golfing by serene lakes, in the balmy seaside or in the exhilarating mountains, providing more than enough variety for anyone looking to experience the different facets the game of golf can bring.

Three of Italy’s largest lakes are home to various golfing sites. Lake Garda, Lake Maggiore, and Lake Como offer the surreal feel of enchantment. Des Iles Borromees is located 4km south of Lake Maggiore, which makes it perfect for long walks in the moderate slopes of the lakes. Enjoy the scenic beauty that comes with a golf club near a natural body of water in Menaggio and the Cadenabbia Golf Club, located near the picturesque Lake Como.

Majority of Italy’s golf courses are open all year round. Visitors travelling to Italy should find it easy to happen upon a golf course of their liking, as many golf courses are open all year round all over the country.

The Pevero Golf Club in Sardinia, The Circolo Golf Olgiata, the Associazione Sportiva I Roveri, The Golf Club Milano, and The Golf Club Monticello are just some of the privately owned golf spots accessible to visitors. Some of these are closed on certain days of the week depending on the decision of the management.

The rates of the hotels with golf courses depend on whether the person staying is a golfer or not. Seven nights with five rounds of golf would cost around GBP 900 for a golfer and GBP 800 for a non-golfer. The rates include accommodation, tour, and five golfing trips to different golfing sites near the hotel. There are certain golf sites such as Golf Club San Leonardo in Passiria or the Golf Club Monte San Pietro that offer individual lessons that range from 30 minutes to four days.

The stunning country of Italy is known throughout the world for so many things, and surprisingly, golf has always been overlooked. This is a misconception that should be erased. Italy offers not just wonderful golf courses, but a golfing arena that is laden with exquisite beauty and rich history. In Italy, you don’t just play golf — you discover the sport and take it to a whole new level.
