Like almost no other sport, golf is intimately linked to nature. For this reason, South Tyrol, with its wonderful scenery, is the ideal golfing location. In the immediate vicinity of the Granvara Relais & SPA Hotel****S there are several golf courses - each with it's own unique character: just 25 minutes away is the Alpine Golf Course St.Vigil - Siusi allo Sciliar, an 18-hole course with an impressive Dolomite panorama at the foot of the Schlern in the UNESCO world natural heritage site.
Also around 25 minutes away is the 9-hole course at 1800 metres above sea level in Alta Badia. For those who prefer a more Mediterranean climate, there’s the 9-hole course in Lana near Merano, or an 18-hole course in Petersberg.
The golf courses in detail:
The golf course is at 1700 meters above sea level only a few kilometers from the town centre of Corvara, in untouched nature and with an ideal temperature, far from the summer sultry heat in the valley.
From June to October the conditions are perfect to assure a wonderful round of golf, on a sunny highland with a difference in height of a mere 45 meters.
The course has a club house, putting green, driving range and a professional.
“One of the most fantastic 18-hole golf courses in the North of Italy” – this is the unanimous opinion of experts. In this quiet and idyllic area, situated in the middle of the Dolomites, playing golf is a great experience – a well groomed course which is a challenge in terms of playing and a Golf Club which bears international comparisons.
Open from March to November (altitude 850 m), the golf course stretches on an area of about 60 hectares, perfectly embedded in the landscape. Idyllic ponds, ravines, brooks, fascinating waterfalls and long fairways alternate with easier paths. Beginner, professional players – we can satisfy all your needs.
While you are thinking about your shot making strategy, it could happen that the sight of the Dolomites takes away your breath – your concentration gets lost because you are dreamily glancing at the south Tyrolean mountains.
Our Driving Range with 32 covered practice tees on 2 floors, putting- pitching greens and the golf school is open 7 days per week (March to November). The Driving Range is closed Monday mornings for Green keeping (except Monday is a holiday)! The office is open all days from 8 am to 7 pm.
9 hole course with mildly undulated grounds for a comfortable game, suitable for players in every age and experience range. The relatively long course (2793 Meters – PAR 35) provides a good and fair test of both lengths and precision.
Besides the masterly designed and accessible golf-course, other special features of Golf Club Lana, situated below the ruins of the “Brandis” castle, include a stunning panoramic view on the vast Adige’s valley on one hand and the close proximity to orchards on the other, granting a direct immersion in the genuine character of this land and its inhabitants. Equally attractive is the exceptionally long season, here, where a Mediterranean climate reigns within the Alps’ bosom.
Our location doesn’t just stand out for its geographic and climatic virtues. Still at Bolzano Airport or on the motorway half an hour before, you’ll find yourself already swinging in a refreshing natural context amongst Lana’s orchards.
The Fairways and Greens are mostly surrounded by old woods and, above all, players with low handicap must play very exactly and defensively. Primarily on the holes 2, 3, 5, 11 and 17 the blows must be placed very well and the approaches with a lot of sensitiveness are played.
The fact is not to be underestimated that on meters 1200 / 1,300 of sea level the balls a little bit fly on as in the plain. Some Greens are relatively small and surrounded by three sides with wood, here special care is offered. The hole 17 is classified by the players as the most impressive hole of the place, one plays from a raised reduction about an old millpond on the Green. To cross the water, a tee-shot of approx. 120 meters is necessary.
