Turin, the capital city of Piedmont Region, is located in north-western Italy not far from the French border.
Golf is here very well-established with numerous private golf clubs from the mountain areas to the vineyards of Langhe and Monferrato further to Lake Maggiore. Not only are many of the courses of outstanding technical level and beauty, but they are also an excellent starting point for discovering the region. In Piedmont, you can play great golf, explore the region's unequalled heritage of history and culture, enjoy the unspoiled countryside and savour some of the world's choicest food and wine such as Barolo and Barbaresco.
A unique opportunity for golfers who enjoy the best on the greens and off.
TORINO GOLF CLUB "LA MANDRIA"
Blue: 18 holes par 72; Yellow: 18 holes par 72
Established back in 1957 in the grounds of “La Mandria”, once the hunting estate of the Royal House of Savoy and now a natural park. The first 18 holes were designed by the British architect John Morrison who donated to the golf club that uniquely British character which still sets it apart. In the years that followed, the course was extended to 27 holes by Studio Harris, Marco Croze and Graham Cooke, and further on to the current 36 holes.
For the 1999 Italian Open, the course was modified without changing its nature, to make it more challenging, more modern and suitable for high-level competitions.
A 9-hole Pitch & Putt course is a feature that makes the Torino La Mandria golf course a unique attraction in the whole of Piedmont.
ROYAL PARK "I ROVERI"
RTJ Sr. Course: 18 holes par 72; Pramerica Course 18 holes par 72
Located next to Torino Golf Club La Mandria. The first golf course was designed in 1971 by Robert Trent Jones Sr. who embedded the competition course into the natural environment. The course is innovative for the use of bunkers and water hazards and the skilful arrangement of greens and obstacles that encourage a careful game strategy. The new course, with 18 more holes, bears the signature of Michael Hurdzan, who offered here his international fame to a European golf club for the first time.
The clubhouse has the charm of exclusivity with modern comforts; a mix between metropolitan chic and respectful silence, a Savoy tradition.
The compelling location, surrounded by the Alps and immersed in the La Mandria Regional Park, is just a stone’s throw from the royal palace at Venaria, the largest of the Royal Residences, and only 15 km from the centre of Turin.
GOLF CLUB BIELLA "LE BETULLE"
18 holes par 73
On the way between Milan and Turin, there is Golf Club Biella "Le Betulle", built in the late ’50s in the charming countryside on the slopes of the Serra Moraine of rare natural beauty. A British style golf club with an 18-hole golf course, a traditional clubhouse with excellent kitchen, and a lovely 18-room boutique hotel-style guesthouse.
The course follows the morphological characteristics of the ground at an altitude of 1.936 feet asl. For many years it has been considered one of the best courses worldwide by both domestic and international press. International guides place it among the top worldwide.
Without a doubt worth a stay or, at least, a round of golf.
Also, a good base for a golf holiday with transfers to other golf courses if you don't enjoy staying in the city and prefer peace next to a golf course.
