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
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.
