In a corner of paradise between Desenzano del Garda and Sirmione distinguished by the unique quality of the landscape and its historical background, this exclusive resort has a 27 championship golf course, 9 exclusive links, a welcoming club house and an elegant residential units that complements the Abbye of San Vigilio dating back to the 11th Century. This ideal solution for living and relazation is perfectly combined with tradition and modernity and only enhances all the original beauty of this location mitigated by the temperate Mediterranean climate fostered by Lake Garda in the vicinity.
Designed by the German architect Kurt Rossknecht who, after his numerous projects in Europe and South Africa, took on the challenge of constructing his first golf course in Italy, making the best possible use of the natural and historical wealth of the Abbey of San Vigilio.
Having an expanse of 110 hectares to work with, Rossknecht developed a 27-sample hole course with another 9 executive holes, creating a circuit that interprets perfectly the original characteristics of the plot. With a maximum extension of 6775 metres from the "Gold championship" tees and 5070 metres from the "Ladies" tees, with another three intermediate teeing areas, the course is capable of offering a tough challenge for more experienced players, yet a thoroughly enjoyable circuit for beginners. The water hazards, greens well defended by strategically positioned bunkers, the articulated fairways surrounded by extensive rough, as well as the wide range of combinations offered by the 18-hole circuit with three different teeing areas, ensure that the game is always varied. A long, wide Driving Range completes the circuit, with numerous tee-boxes.
