Circolo Golf Torino Blue, Circolo Golf Torino
Golf Course at Circolo Golf Torino
The Blue Course is the superior track at Torino Golf Club, staging the Italian Open in 1999, 2013 and 2014. The classic parkland layout allows very little margin for error, with numerous trees, strategically placed bunkers and water hazards featuring throughout. The 13th exemplifies the challenge of the Blue Course. A downhill 186-yard, par-3, the narrow green is protected by a punishing water hazard and three bunkers to the sides.
Despite being slightly less prestigious than its acclaimed sister, the Yellow Course at Torino Golf Club is by no means a pushover. The 1st hole sets the tone for the rest of the course, a difficult par-4 with plenty of hazards. Slightly doglegging to the left, the fairway is lined by trees and protected by five bunkers and water to the right. The small green is then guarded by a further three bunkers, meaning par is an extremely good score. However, higher handicappers need not fear, as six sets of tees make this course playable by golfers of any ability.
