OVER 40 CLUBS strategically positioned on the entire regional territory to meet the needs of all golfers, from beginners to experts.

MAJESTIC GOLF COURSES: five of the ten fields reported as the best in Italy by the most prestigious sector magazines belong to Piedmont.

PLAY FREEDOM on fields that are almost never crowded, being able to choose the tee time and your own playmates, without the obligation to use the golf car and above all ... without speeding up the pace: golf in Piedmont still means “sport and relaxation in nature ".

THE VARIETY OF THE LANDSCAPES is so vast that we often get lost in the magic of green that few regions have the good fortune to possess. From the Olympic Mountains to the Langhe to Lake Maggiore, passing through Turin, Piedmont offers mountain, country, city and hill itineraries.

STAY AND PLAY: 15 courts offer the opportunity to stay in small and medium-sized golf hotels, some are recently built, others have been installed in ancient villas and renovated farmhouses: the ideal choice for those seeking full immersion.

THE OLIMPIC EXPERIENCE of Torino 2006 has endowed Piedmont with a quality hotel offer: luxury hotels, charming hotels, farmhouses and bed & breakfasts, residences for all tastes and all budgets. The professionalism in hospitality and service are today those of an established tourist destination.

GOLF & WINE: around, and within some fields of Piedmont, fine wines are produced, from Barolo to Asti spumante. The nineteenth hole is often a rustic red brick cellar where you can taste wines, cheeses and other Piedmontese food and wine excellences.

GOLF & TRUFFLE: In autumn numerous food and wine fairs are held, the Salone del Gusto in Turin and the Alba Truffle Fair alternate from year to year and are the highlight of the season. During the Truffle Fair the golf courses near Alba organize competitions in which the precious tuber is offered as a prize. The Salone del Gusto instead takes place at the Lingotto, Turin's exhibition center with five courses and two golf hotels within a radius of 20 km.

NOT ONLY GOLF: a holiday in Piedmont with the bag on your shoulder also means experiencing emotions in cities of art and high cultural tradition, in clippings of the history of the country. It means enjoying an increasingly lively worldliness and endless opportunities for classy shopping, from boutiques in the center of Turin to large outlets in the province where you can buy Made in Italy at extremely affordable prices.

AT THE FOOT OF THE MOUNTAINS AND TWO STEPS FROM THE SEA: The golf courses of southern Piedmont are less than an hour from the Ligurian Riviera.

An example is the GOLF CLUB CHERASCO:

The Cherasco Golf Club is located in the south of Piedmont in the Province of Cuneo, where the rivers Tanaro and Stura merge.
While playing the 18 hole course one can easily be drawn by the memorable surrounding scenario, by the gentle hills of the Langhe, which are famous for grand wines and for truffles, or by the distant Alps with the majestic Monviso.

Closed on Tuesdays (except public holidays). Open weekdays and weekends from March to October.
