Island green at Grado

Recently nicknamed ‘Europe´s Sawgrass’ by Today´s Golfer, Grado Golf Club in north-east Italy is getting ready for the upcoming busy summer months. A special Summer Package is being launched by the Club promising great value golfing holiday for the whole family.

For £420 golfers can play unlimited golf at Grado´s fantastic championship golf course and enjoy seven nights’ accommodation, including breakfast, in the comfortable Marina Suites overlooking Laguna di Grado. As a part of the package the guests will have full use of the Tenuta Primero resort including swimming pools, sports facilities and a private relaxation beach.

Kids golf summer school will also be available at Grado Golf Club during the first and third week in July and first and second week in August. Designed for kids between the age of 8 – 16 these will be five full days of fun with mornings dedicated to volleyball, gymnastics, swimming and other sports and afternoons spent learning golf under supervision of a golf professional at Grado´s fantastic facilities.

Best known for its stunning signature hole, the par three 1st hole with an island green reminiscent of the Players Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass, Grado is a dramatic championship layout plotted between the Laguna di Grado and the Mediterranean. Given its location the course features numerous water hazards for those willing to tempt fate. It is fitting that the nearest large city is Venice (two hours away), which is itself dominated by water.

Ivan Marzola, the owner of Grado Golf Club and the Tenuta Primero Resort said, “The summer here at Grado is always very beautiful with temperatures high enough for swimming and sun bathing and at the same time pleasant enough for playing golf. We have recently hosted a number of prominent golf tournaments here at Grado and the feedback we have received about the quality of the course is very positive. We are looking forward to welcoming golfing families from the UK over the summer months and treating them to some great golf, sunny weather and true Italian hospitality.”

Grado can be easily reached from the UK with a selection of direct flights from the larger UK cities to Venice or Trieste.

Grado is a 27 hole golf complex with a nine hole executive course ideal for less experienced players and children. The club restaurant “Al Casone” is built in the style of a traditional local fishing house by the Laguna di Grado and offers gourmet fresh fish dishes with a modern twist.
