San Valentino Golf Club
The San Valentino Golf Club is situated in a valley over 300 metres above sea level in the neighbourhood of the same name, in the municipality of Castellarano. It is surrounded by over 130 hectares of woodland and green pastures and boasts 4 lakes. It is a setting where the scales undeniably tip in favour of nature and the top-quality services offered blend in perfectly with the surroundings.
Despite the few water obstacles, the 18-hole championship golf course is highly intriguing thanks to its hilly terrain and the considerable difference in height between the holes.
The very fast greens are nearly all protected by bunkers. The width of the fairways varies, with constantly changing degrees of difficulty and emotion. The beautiful clubhouse, which covers an area of over 3,000 square metres, stands between holes 9 and 18 and welcomes players and their partners in elegant and comfortable surroundings.
18 holes, par 69, 5,838 metres, inaugurated in 1997.
Putting green, pitching green with bunker, driving range with 18 uncovered and 12 covered positions, bar, refreshment stands, swimming pool, cardio-fitness gym, pro-shop, angling lake, restaurant, hotel, congress centre with a giant screen for videoconferencing, party room, games, reading and TV lounge, massage room, nature trail with gym in the wood, climbing wall and survivor course, whirlpool and golf cart and trolley hire.
