Golf Club Padova is the oldest course in Padova, it opened in 1962 originally as an 18-hole track and has in matured into a fine specimen. The brains behind the design was Commander John Harris, a civil engineer, who turned his hand to golf course design and was England’s leading and most travelled golf course designer of the time.
The course comprises of three excellently maintained, individual and contrasting 9-hole loops (a third was added in 2003), located at the foot of the Euganean Hills they reside in a relatively flat terrain which is both peaceful and relaxing. There are no highways or houses to disrupt your game of golf or the stunning beauty of the countryside where the course is nestled.
Water hazards provide the main threat during your round, many are “hidden” and a shot saver is definitely a recommended purchase before you get our on the course. The manicured fairways are generally forgiving and the relatively light, shallow bunkers mean that the course has an easy-going feel to it, in turn helping to maximize the enjoyability of your round.
Golf Club Padova contains some fantastic facilities at its clubhouse which include a superb swimming pool, sauna, gym and the restaurant which is very well known for its exquisite food in the local area.
