Golf in Emilia Romagna
In the very middle of Northern Italy, the charming region of Emilia Romagna is an excellent choice for a golf holiday in the “Bel Paese”. The territory, encompassing eleven UNESCO Heritage sites, is worldwide recognized for the presence of the Romanesque and Renaissance cities of Modena, Ferrara, Ravenna and for the famous regional capital of Bologna. In 2018, the Lonely Planet guide named Emilia Romagna as the best place to see in Europe.
A golf break in Emilia Romagna will give you the chance to play in some of the most exclusive Italian golf courses and, at the same time, enjoy the unique Italian cuisine. Besides, the region can be definitely considered as the heaven on earth for cars, due to the presence of headquarters and museums of Ferrari, Lamborghini, Pagani and Ducati. The fascinating Apennines Mountains, the lively beaches, the unique artistic sites and the fine golf courses are only a small part of the wide opportunities that Emilia Romagna has to offer.
Golf courses in Emilia Romagna
The Golf Club Bologna is history, tradition and is even more: the club is the oldest one among those which go on “according to tradition” according to the will of its founder.
Achille Sassoli de Bianchi “wanted it, created it and I know how much he loved it,” his wife Anna says proudly. Today Filippo Sassoli, just as proudly as Achille, runs and loves it.
Its overall shape is reminiscent of British inland courses, with greens well protected by bunkers and nothing particularly original about the layout as a whole. You certainly wouldn’t come here just for the thrills of striking visual beauty, but the moderation in the layout of hazards makes this a pleasant course for almost every player. Only the very best might rue the absence of a tougher challenge.
Le Fonti Golf club is situated in the fascinating Sillaro Valley, with a mild and pleasant microclimate, surrounded by gently rolling hills.
The course, which stretches for a total of 6,480 metres, has 18 holes and is par 72, and is extremely varied and entertaining both for experienced players and beginners.

Together with the surrounding area, the course, overlooking the spa facilities and on the outskirts of the medieval town, offers an ample variety of opportunities for fine dining, recreation, cultural activities, sports and music that allow guests to enjoy a pleasant and unforgettable stay.
