The original course was built in 1971 by architect Robert Trent Jones Senior. Born June 20, 1906, Jones designed (or redesigned) about 500 golf courses worldwide. It was said jokingly: “The sun never sets on a Robert Trent Jones golf course”.
The courses designed by Jones are famous for landscape art, the innovative use of bunkers, the widespread use of water hazards and the skilful arrangement of greens and obstacles to encourage careful game strategy. In his view golf had to be without risks: a sport without rewards: his design encourages bold play.
In recent years the course has been extended by a further 18 holes whose design was entrusted to Michael Hurdzan.
Hurdzan is internationally recognized as an authority in the development of golf courses. He was the president of the American Association of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA), he studied turf management at the University of Ohio, obtained a master’s degree in landscape architecture and a doctorate in physiology of landscape plants.
In 1996 he was awarded the title of architect of the year by Golf World Magazine
Piedmont is in Italy's northwest and borders Switzerland and France.
True to the meaning of its name (foot of the mountain), Piedmont is a land of mountains. It is surrounded on three sides by the Alps, with the highest peaks and largest glaciers in Italy.
Monviso, the Piedmont side of Monte Rosa and the other spectacular mountains in the region, create incredibly beautiful landscapes, and ski resorts abound: Via Lattea and Sestriere welcome winter sports enthusiasts with their state-of-the-art facilities.
The Alps form the background for sweeping, picturesque valleys, e.g. the Val di Susa, Valsesia and Val d'Ossola.
The landscapes of the Langhe and Monferrato are hilly, rather, but just as beautiful, a succession of cultivated hills and vineyards that are dotted with small towns and castles.
Expanses of water and rice paddies, long rows of poplars and old farmhouses make up the typical scenery of the plains around Novara and Vercelli.
Lake Maggiore is the most sought-after tourist resort, including Stresa and the Borromean Islands, charming as they are with their ancient villas surrounded by beautiful lawns and gardens.
Yet, nature is only one of the many attractions in Piedmont.
This region has many other facets: from Turin – the Italian car manufacturing capital – with its history and remarkable cultural heritage, to other cities such as Cherasco, Alba and Ivrea.
Next up are the intriguing Medieval castles - like the imposing fortress at Ivrea - and prized works of architecture - the famous Residences of the Royal House of Savoy and the Sacri Monti (Sacred Mountains) certainly deserve to be mentioned.
The famous spa resorts of Acqui Terme and Vinadio offer treatments and therapy for a relaxing, reviving holiday.
Discoveries and surprises of all kinds are in store for visitors to the region, including a wide range of food and wine to suit every palate.
The region’s provinces are: Turin (regional capital), Alessandria, Asti, Biella, Cuneo, Novara, Verbano Cusio Ossola and Vercelli.
The Province of Turin lies on the border with France and Val d'Aosta, extending to Pinerolo, the picturesque Val di Susa, the Canavese and the hills to the east and south of the City of Turin.
The area is characterized by its varied landscapes: magnificent alpine resorts, vast pasturelands, woods and large stretches of vineyards.
The Province is also home to a number of reserves, including the Sacro Monte Natural Reserve in Belmonte, and the wonderful Gran Paradiso National Park, the undisputed realm of ibex, chamois, marmots, rare birds and other animals.
In this spectacular natural landscape, cultural and historical finds abound.
The entire territory is permeated with signs of the long reign of Savoy: think elaborate Savoy residences surrounded by grand parks (also a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
Yet the most visible evidence of the Savoys' power is on view in Turin, an eclectic city that is a sort of open-air museum combining Baroque palaces, monuments from its glorious past and contemporary architecture. It is truly a dynamic scene that allows various styles to exist in complete harmony.
Not only, but countless other treasures await those who would admire them, from imposing mountain fortresses like Forte Fenestrelle and Forte Exilles, to the abbeys lining the ancient Via Francigena or standing in the quiet solitude the countryside - the Sacra di San Michele, one of the most impressive monuments in Piedmont, comes to mind.
The area’s historic town centers are custodians of ancient traditions: Ivrea, with its remarkable artistic heritage; Susa, Chivasso, Chieri; and the hamlet of Mélezet, preserving precious 15th-Century artworks.
Finally, the local cuisine is without equals: delicious dishes, traditional recipes, excellent wines and the famous gianduja chocolate offer flavors to suit every palate.
Turin Province surprises without limits, and shines bright with the glow of its epic history, its fascinating culture, and its magnificent natural landscape.
