O for Some Late-Season Golf
golf, the Giardino Ascona offers an exclusive ‘Golf Perfekt’ programme run in collaboration with renowned physiotherapist Cornelia Albrecht.
After a full body check-up lasting an hour and a half, Cornelia accompanies her clients onto the golf course to get a detailed picture of the rotation, stability and coordination of their bodies as they play golf so that she can then provide advice and individually-tailored exercises to suit each golfer’s own body and movement.
Cornelia aims to resolve any issues that are affecting player performance and, with her help, many golfers have managed to increase their driving capability considerably. A dipiù massage in the hotel spa provides the perfect way to relax after Cornelia’s session and is included in the offer.
For those just looking for an 18-hole green fee at the Golf Club Patriziale Ascona, the cost is Euros120/UK£85 during the week and Euros138/UK£98 at the weekends and on public holidays.
Dedicated golfers may wish to travel further afield to the other two courses in the area. The Golf Gerre Losone, opened in 2001, offers a complete contrast from Ascona Patriziale; it is a modern, open and very challenging course thanks to a number of tight fairways, unnerving OB possibilities and several rock-lined streams and ponds that demand good course management and accurate shot making. A few kilometers away on the shores of Lake Lugano, the Lugano golf course is laid out over gently undulating terrain that is bisected by the River Magliasina that often brings water into play. The tight, technical layout with numerous bunkers is tempered by large greens, whilst azaleas and rhododendrons add splashes of color on various holes.
