TRENT JONES SR COURSE
This is a luxurious golfing experience that’ll make you feel like a pro as you walk past the flags out of the clubhouse and then over the bridge towards the 1st tee.
The course is characterised by elegantly designed bunkers, strategically placed water hazards as well as undulating greens to create varying challenging pin positions.
All the way around the course, golfers will notice stunning flora and fauna displays as well as beautiful views of the Alps, to make this one of the most picturesque courses in Europe.
Royal Park offers you 36 stunning holes to enjoy, which is a rarity for Italian Golf Clubs.

Signature Hole – No.17; par 4; handicap 1; ranked “Best Italian hole 2013”
The 18th is a 524 yard Par 5 from the Men’s Championship Tees and is reachable for the long hitters in 2. Loose drivers of the ball can relax on this tee as a fairly wide fairway awaits...but don’t go too far wide as there are sand traps and trees to make the following shot challenging. For those that put themselves in position to hit this in two will then have to choose between a difficult approach shot that has bunkers left and a lake right off the green, or just lay up to a perfect yardage and still have a chance at birdie.
Royal Park I Roveri is ranked as one of the best courses in Italy
PRAMERICA BY HURDZAN-FRY COURSE
Michael Hurdzan has won the ‘Architect of the Year’ in 1999 & 2001, and lent his hand in designing this course to his usual impeccable standards. The course features a number of holes revolving around water as well as thick rough and tree-lined fairways so accuracy is the order of the day around this course.

Signature Hole – No. 18: Par 4, 468 yards (Men’s Championship Tees)
The 18th is considered the signature hole on this course, with a picturesque drawbridge to walk over from the tee. The hole plays 468 yards from the Men’s Championship tees and is Stroke Index 1 on the course. The hole requires a fairly straight forward drive, however there is trouble written all over your approach shot. There is a large lake and stream running short of the green, and then an undulating green awaits for those that do find the putting surface. A Par here will be a good score.
The practice facilities on hand are sure to help you get your game in good shape before the 1st tee. There is a very large driving range with free Srixon golf balls so you can smash as many driver swings as you need to start hitting it pure. Then there are also 2 large floodlit putting greens to test your short game until late in the evening.
Food & Drink
Following your round on some championship courses, the Royal Park I Roveri has the perfect clubhouse to help you relax.
Golfers can head to the Clubhouse lounge and enjoy some traditional Piedmontese whilst choosing from a large selection of wines in true Italian style. Enjoying some wine & cheese here whistling overlooking the golf courses with the Alps in the background, simply cannot be matched.
For non-golfers or for a post-round relaxation, the club also offers an outdoor pool & solarium to enjoy the Sun and top-up on that tan. Or perhaps, guests could enjoy a workout in the spacious gym or loosen up those golf swings before the round in the designated Stretching area.
