In one of the most beautiful sceneries in Italy 

The area around Verona is among the favourite golf destinations in Italy, chosen by tourists from all over the world, also thanks to the mild climate all year round and the presence of championship courses which have hosted several time the Open d'Italia, the most prestigious professional event in our country and one of the most important in Europe.
