LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT

Famed for its ro­man­tic ci­ties, the Ital­ian re­gion of Veneto is an un­ex­pected golf­ing par­adise.

Golf World (UK) - - THE SPIN -

The beau­ti­ful un­touched re­gion of Veneto, in the north-east of Italy, is famed for it’s his­toric ci­ties of Venice and Verona. For its ar­chi­tec­ture, land­scapes, ro­mance, art, gas­tron­omy, vine­yards and wine. And as the home to some of finest and most var­ied golf cour­ses in Italy.

Named ‘Best Undis­cov­ered Golf Des­ti­na­tion in the World 2103’, Veneto is just a two-hour flight from Lon­don and with per­fect golf­ing weather from April un­til Septem­ber, it is the ideal short-haul es­cape for UK golfers.

Birth­place and golf breed­ing ground of Mat­teo Manassero, the Euro­pean Tour’s youngest ever win­ner, the re­gion has pre­vi­ously played host to the Ital­ian Open and is renowned for its his­toric cour­ses with spec­tac­u­lar de­signs, views to die for, lux­u­ri­ous club­houses and un­ri­valled hos­pi­tal­ity.

Veneto and its golf can be split into four var­ied ar­eas. Venice Gar­den in­cludes 27 vista-laden holes, stun­ning fa­cil­i­ties and a lux­ury ho­tel at Asolo Golf Club and the Arnold Palmerde­signed Ca Della Nave Golf Club, with its peace­ful gar­den feel. Veneto Hills boasts Marco Croze’s fauna and flora-rich park­land Golf Club Fras­sanelle and Golf Mon­tec­chia, with its 27 holes wind­ing through un­du­lat­ing turf in the shad­ows of the Eu­ganean Hills. Then there’s the Dolomites, with its Asi­ago Golf Club – a nat­u­ral won­der lo­cated in the Veneto Moun­tains, with a course that will wow and test you and a lux­ury ho­tel and spa that will rest and re­lax you. And fi­nallys Verona, the set­ting for Romeo and Juliet and home to the pres­ti­gious Golf Club Verona, laid out amidst vine­yards and framed by the hils of Cus­toza on an un­spolied land­scape.

Af­ter tack­ling the golf, you can spend hours ex­plor­ing one of the Europe’s most revered re­gions.
