Lifestyle at Lake Garda
Dolce Vita: Golfing on Lake Garda
Lake Garda is a true paradise for golfers: 11 golf courses in the immediate surroundings, which all have their own particularities and special characteristics.
Play the third oldest golf course in Italy at Golf Club Bogliaco today and try out the top modern 36-hole golf facility Chervò San Vigilio tomorrow. Or you could combine those two another day and instead combine golf with wine through a detour to the Franciacorta region. Here you will find an unbelievably well-maintained 27-hole golf course and on top of this have the possibility to taste the Italian “champagne”.
There are many advantages with the Lake Garda golf region:
While you play on relatively newly built golf courses in Spain or Turkey located in some satellite village built only for tourists you may sometimes long for a bit more authenticity.
If you are on Lake Garda you can stroll through the various cosy villages in the evenings and enjoy an appetizer in one the many characteristic bars, or having a Spritz in a pleasant Piazza while watching people and, naturally, feast on a wonderful meal after a long golf day.
Gastronomically speaking, the Lake Garda region is on of the wealthiest in Europe: Top wineries like Valpolicella with its outstanding red wine Amarone, the Franciacorta region with its sparkling wine “bollicine”, achieved through a method similar to the production of champagne (“metodo classico”), the south end of Lake Garda with its fantastic white wine Lugana and its tasty Grana Padano, Lake Garda's golden liquid, together with one of the finest olive oils in Italy, are just to mention some of the highlights of the region.
