A week discovering Lake Garda hills
«Tonight, I could have reached Verona, but I would have let escape a marvel of the nature, an enchanting sight, Lake Garda; I did not want to miss it, and I was beautifully rewarded for this diversion. ” – Wolfgang Goethe, Journey to Italy, 12 September 1786.
Two and a half centuries have passed since the writing of that famous sentence. Today I can assure you that Lake Garda is, if possible, even more beautiful.
Of course, when Goethe passed through, nature was predominant, but compared to the German author, today the tourist can enjoy a greater advantage: staying in a territory magically transformed into a kingdom of hospitality.
Italy is definitely the ultimate Golf Destination.

The Chervò San Vigilio Golf Club hosted the 77th, Italian Open.
At San Vigilio you can play on different courses every time, thanks to the generous dimensions of the area, that permit greenkeepers to vary at will the consistency of the roughs, and thanks to the presence of many water hazards , with an abundance of wide bunkers both on the side of the green and in insidious points along the fairways.

With this stop, Italy4Golf brings golf tourists closer to Lake Iseo. In a valley rich in water and vegetation, the designers of the Franciacorta Golf Club – architects Pete Dye and Marco Croze, have created a true sports oasis between woods and vineyards.
The course engages the player on slopes shaded by centuries-old trees in a park rich in ponds and panoramic views, capable of relaxing between one green and the next. Alongside the first eighteen holes, named Brut and Satèn in honor of local wine productions, were later added the nine Rosè, challenging addition to the golfer who never gets tired.
