Golf Grado

Part of the Tenuta Primero Resort, Grado Golf Club, which sits on the shoreline of the Adriatic Sea just an hour and a half’s drive from the famous city of Venice, was recently ranked 79th in Golf World magazine’s “Top 100 Resorts in Continental Europe 2017” and is a superb option for anyone looking to enjoy a Venice Golf Holiday.

The challenging 6,650 yard championship course is set along the banks of the picturesque Grado lagoon which is home to herons, wild swans and flamingos, making Grado a unique and tranquil place to enjoy a round of golf.

Constantino Rocca certainly enjoyed his visit. Having taken part in the Friuli Venezia Giulia Open, the man most famous for his epic putt from the Valley of Sin at the 1995 Open Championship at St Andrews said of the course: “I am fortunate enough to have played many courses in Italy and around the world but this was my first visit to Grado. It is clearly a very good course with excellent practice facilities and a welcoming clubhouse. I look forward to visiting again and playing a round there in future. I would urge people coming to this part of Italy to visit and experience the course for themselves.”

Designed by Marco Croze, this gorgeous par 72 championship layout opened in 1996 and is best known for a duo of holes featuring island greens, which lead Today’s Golfer to nickname dub as Europe’s Sawgrass. High praise indeed.

Suffice to say, with Grado Lagoon and a networks of streams and man made lakes and ponds, water is the defining feature here, with a number of forced carries and plenty of hazards to negotiate on your way around the course. Finish your round at Grado with the same ball that you teed off with and you’ll have had a good day at the office!

Further challenges come in the form of the dramatically contoured greens and the breeze that blows in from the Adriatic Sea.

Constantino Rocca, who famously lost out in a playoff to John Daly at the 1995 Open Championship at the St Andrews Old Course is a fan, saying of the course: “The course is challenging but fair and has a real linksy feel, being close to the sea and with the wind coming into play. It has some tough holes and some very memorable ones such as the par three first hole which plays to an island green. The course is suitable for all levels of ability though and would make for an enjoyable few rounds on holiday.”

Part of the Tenuta Primero Resort, golfers paying Grado a visit also have the opportunity to plenty of off-course facilities, including a stunning marina, private beach and wellness facilities including a heated swimming pool, as well as tennis, volleyball and basketball courts. Of course, there are also ample practice facilities at the golf club too, with an excellent driving range featuring covered bays, as well as short game practice facilities including areas in which to practice both your pitching and putting before taking to the course.

There’s also a superb selection of restaurants and bars including the renowned Al Casone restaurant located in the clubhouse, where golfers can relax after their rounds, sip a glass or two of a local vintage before enjoying one of the most highly regarded fine dining experiences in the region.
