PHILOSOPHY

Our recipe for excellence

 

The Gardagolf Country Club’s philosophy is to offer its Members and Guests a highly maintained technical Open championship golf course, in a breathtaking setting, and a welcoming Club House offering services par excellence.

The 27-holes Championship and the large driving range permit the Club to host various rounds of the most important national and international circuits, at the same time giving those who don’t wish to play at a competitive level the opportunity to try their hand at a championship, yet fun course.

The Gardagolf Country Club’s ambition is to be recognised as the keystone of one of Europe’s most important golfing centres, where the availability, professionalism and courtesy of the staff ensure that anyone is in a position to play the best possible game of golf.

 

 

Our professionals, instructors Franco Maestroni, Luca Frigerio and Andrea Maestroni, promote and are responsible for instruction, overseeing all of the Club’s Competitive activities. Together with instructor Alfredo Da Corte, they devote particular attention to the youth activities, permitting us to coach our future champions. Representation in competitions at International level is entrusted to our professional players Matteo Manassero (European Tour), Daniele Nino Bertasio (Challenge Tour) and Andrea Maestroni (Alps Tour).

HISTORY

The concept of building a golf course in Valtenesi, just a few kilometres from Lake Garda, which moderates the valley’s climate, was the result of the entrepreneurial skills and foresight of Riccardo Pisa and Giorgio Simonini, who in 1984, realised the potential of combining a sports initiative and a real estate project.

The concept of ​​tourism development accompanied every step of the design and development process for the Gardagolf Country Club, together with respect for the environment. Pisa and Simonini set out to make a sports investment, believing that the game of golf was an ideal complement to a holiday characterised by class and high standard services.

The first 18 holes, inaugura­ted on June 28th 1986, were designed by Golf & Gardens and the English firm Cotton, Pennick, Steel & Partners. A new 9-hole course was then inaugurated in 1990.

The Gardagolf Country Club is a golf course of Anglo-Italian design and the additional course in fact completed the structure of the original English project.

The three 9-hole courses are highly attractive to players, both from a technical and landscape viewpoint.
