Grado Golf Club, one of north-eastItaly’s most picturesque and popular golf resorts, has teamed up with the leading Czech photographer Lukas Pelech to deliver a range of new top class photography of the resort.

The photo shoot took place at the beginning of August and covered the wide range of products Tenuta Primero and Golf Club Grado offer to their customers from accommodation in the Marina Suites and family bungalows over to the range of restaurants and bars at the resort, private beach and swimming pool and, above all, the championship golf course and its facilities.

The golf course photography includes images taken from ground level as well as a series of breathtaking aerial shots which capture the unique location of Grado Golf Club between the Adriatic Sea and Laguna di Grado. The aerial images also showcase countless water hazards which make the layout particularly challenging with special focus on the signature par 3 first hole which is reminiscent of the famous 17th island green at TPC Sawgrass inFlorida.

Lukas Pelech specializes in hotel, architecture and golf photography and working on a project with so many varied elements to it suited perfectly his expertise. Lukas currently works with several leading hotel chains and premium product brands in the Czech Republic and is looking to expand further toEuropewith special focus on hotel and golf course photography.

Lukas Pelech said: “Top quality photography is a must for any resort these days because there is so much focus on the visual side of any presentation whether it is in print or through digital media and the internet. You can have the most beautiful hotel or golf course in the world but if your photographs don´t deliver the same message, you are losing time and money.”

“I was really excited about working on the Tenuta Primero and Grado Golf Club project because the location is unique, the facilities are of a high standard and the golf course combines a scenic location with some dramatic water hazards. I am pleased that the new photography does real credit to the resort.”

Ivan Marzola, the owner of Grado Golf Club and the Tenuta Primero Resort said, “We are delighted with the portfolio of images Lukas Pelech has delivered for Tenuta Primero and Grado Golf
