Golf in the Region
Emilia Romagna, known as the Italian Riviera, is a stunning region in the North East of Italy and a top destination for golf, culture and cuisine. The region can be split into two golfing areas, the Adriatic Coast and the city of Bologna, both offering a unique feel and a great base for an Italian golf holiday.
The Adriatic Coast has been Italy’s most popular seaside destination for the last 50 years. Stretched out on the East coast, the resort has become a favourite for beach holidays, sun seekers and more importantly, golfers. The area is home to some spectacular and scenic golf courses. Found in the area. you have the Adriatic Golf Club Cervia, which winds its way round an enchanting pine forest, and the Rimini Verucchio Golf a wonderful course just inland of the coastline. The Riviera Golf Resort is a superb place to stay and play in a tranquil setting in the Italian countryside.
Bologna, the largest city and capital of the Emilia Romagna region, is a fascinating & traditional Italian city, which has somehow stayed off the tourist track. Nicknamed “La Grassa”, translating as the rich cuisine, due to the array of lavish restaurants scattered across the city. Bologna is often referred to as the gastronomic capital of Italy. The city is home to three stunning and natural parkland courses which are located on the outskirts of the city. The Bologna Golf Club is the stand out candidate, a superb course nestled in the hills offering spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. The two other courses, Modena Golf & Country Club and Golf Club Le Fonti are excellent championship courses and have hosted in the recent past the Italian Open and many other professional competitions.
