Royal Park Roveri Golf Club - Trent Jones Course

As the number one course in Italy, it is no wonder it hosted the European Tour’s Italian Open between 2009 and 2012. Embedded in the Alps, the parkland course has consistently been voted inside the top-3 courses in Italy since 1985 meaning you can be assured of a memorable round here. The 17th hole will, without a doubt, be the stand out hole as it has been awarded the “Best hole in Italy” by Gazzetta dello Sport. The 468-yard hole is flanked by trees, has a water hazard in front of the green and several bunkers, providing a stern test for every golfer.
