Franciacorta Golf Club
Verona & Lake Garda, Italy
Franciacorta Golf Club overview
Franciacorta Golf Club offers 27 holes of Italian golf surrounded by woods, lakes and vineyards. Designed by Pete Dye and Marco Croze, Franciacorta opened in the mid-1980s and features three loops of nine holes. The Brut and Saten courses combine to create the par-73 championship course. The Rosé course and clubhouse were designed by Paolo Dabbeni and were inaugurated in 1987 alongside the tennis courts and swimming pool.
Golf Course at Franciacorta Golf Club
The three loops of nine at Franciacorta Golf Club roll across the complex around a large artificial lake, where every hole is unique. The Brut loop, which makes up the front nine of the championship course, features arguably the most memorable par-5 on the resort. Known as the “hole in the wall,” the 6th hole sees your approach shot played over a ten-foot high stone dyke that crosses the fairway. The Saten nine creates the back-nine of the championship course, with its 2nd hole mimicking the world-famous 17th at TPC Sawgrass. Despite only measuring 120-metres, the intimidation of the lake surrounding the green offers golfers both fear and excitement. Finally, holes 19-27 come under the Rosé loop created by Paolo Dabbeni. Rolling fairways and wide greens offer a gentler challenge than its neighbours.
