Golf – Attractions in Friuli-Venezia Giulia

A golfer’s paradise. Seven 18-hole golf courses. Play your way from the mountains right down to the sea! Seven courses nestling in the midst of beautiful scenery, surrounded by ever-changing but still totally unspoilt nature in a climate that is gentle in every season. From the water-rimmed greens in Grado and Lignano, to the mountain forests in Tarvisio, from the gentle slopes of the hill district to the vineyards and castles around Gorizia. No matter which course you choose, golf in Friuli Venezia Giulia has the extraordinary taste of exploration and challenge.

In a region where mountains, sea and hills cluster together in just over 100 km, 7 golf courses with 18 holes are evenly distributed across the whole area enabling you to immerse yourself in a variety of incredibly beautiful natural settings. Friuli Venezia Giulia is also the leader of Italy Golf&More project, a golf promotion programme in eight regions (Emilia Romagna, Liguria, Lombardy, Apulia, Sicily, Veneto and Lazio) and FIG (Italian Golf Federation), which aims at enhancing the national golf circuits, by combining sports with other activities, such as food and wine tours, guided tours to famous art cities, excursions, horse-riding, rural tourism and much more.
