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.”
