Comment read on the Peugeot Golf Guide
Jim Fazio designed this course over former vineyards in the region of Bardolino. The sloping terrain, together with the type of soil and lie of the land formed a great foundation for golf and no-one is complaining. Lake Garda and Mount Baldo from a theatrical setting for this carefully landscaped course whose natural features have been deliberately protected as far as possible. A few stretches of water and lakes add a little spice to almost a dozen holes, enough to stir you from the balmy insouciance inspired by the very Italian style elegance that abounds here. Two of the prettiest holes are the 17th, a short par 4 that the more gung-ho golfer will attempt to drive, and the 18th, equally tempting, over a glass or two of Bardolino, of course.
Situated in Italy's northeast, Veneto extends from the Dolomites to the Adriatic Sea, by way of an expansive range of hills and a valley furrowed by rivers, canals and the Po River Delta.
The typical scenery of Veneto's coast is the Venetian lagoon, and, right on this very lagoon stands perhaps the most unique city in the entire world - Venice, visited by millions of tourists every year.
Yet all of the Veneto, a region with a thousand different faces, is the custodian of natural, artistic, and traditional treasures.
Veneto expresses an extraordinary variety in its scenery: from the Dolomites, dipped in the crimson shades of the sunset, to the eastern shore of Lake Garda and Peschiera del Garda, Torri del Benaco and other tourist destinations. Long, sandy beaches alternate with well-known resorts such as Jesolo, Bibione, Cavallino and Caorle.
In this spectacular natural setting lies a rich cultural heritage that renders the Veneto such a fascinating region, from its cities of art to the magnificent Palladian villas scattered along the Brenta Riviera. And not to be forgotten are the small villages of Arquà Petrarca, Monselice, Asolo and Bassano del Grappa that bring together the most typical aspects of this diverse and varied region.
Veneto is also an ideal destination for a vacation of comfort and relaxation, thanks to its possession of thermal waters with their valuable therapeutic properties: the gentle slopes of the Euganean Hills are home to the well-equipped facilities of the Euganean Spas: e.g. Abano, Montegrotto and Teolo, where guests can combine treatments and therapies with pleasant excursions out into the surrounding areas.
The provinces of the region are: Venice (regional capital), Belluno, Padua, Rovigo, Treviso, Verona and Vicenza.
The Province of Verona is situated in southwestern Veneto, close to the eastern bank of Lake Garda; renowned for the beauty of its landscape, Lake Garda is green, pretty hills, and beaches large and small. This wonderful setting is complemented by tiny borgoes with typical, colored houses and magnificent villas, emblem of an old and gracious prosperity.
The Verona area boasts numerous buildings of artistic and historic value: castles, towers, hermitages, monasteries, sanctuaries, and old Romanesque parishes.
In its northernmost parts is Lessinia, with its Regional Park and Monte Baldo to indicate the passage from the plains of the Po Valley to the Alpines: a charming scenery fit for hiking and excursions through the beechwoods, grasslands, olive groves, vineyards and orchards. It is the reason that Monte Baldo is also known as Hortus Europae, Garden of Italy and Europe.
In the Province's heart is Valpolicella, land of history and flavors where, in addition to its numerous historic villas, the wine tradition is the distinguishing factor. This area produces exquisite, world-famous wines using special and unique Italian techniques. Further to the south, the Basso Veronese area is a world of its own, with its slow rhythms, silent places, and changing colors; it offers a distinct way of life that welcomes the visitor with open arms.
