Golf Vacations - - Chip Shots -

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.
