CIRCOLO GOLF VENEZIA
The Circolo Golf Venezia was founded in 1928, which makes it one of the first in Italy, as a classic Scottish link on the sandy dunes at Alberoni; today it has become an extremely technical course with many trees that make the game more interesting. In the centre of the course, is an old Venetian fort, the ramparts of which are integral part of several holes; this creates a varied and extremely changing scene. The Venice course, on which numerous personalities from history and society have tried their skills, requires a precise style of play but also a fair amount of power, because each hole conceals new difficulties; golfers go home with wonderful memories of their game, even though it is extremely difficult to achieve good results. It should be noted that this course is rated near the top of the best 10 courses in Italy and 44th among all courses in Europe. The nearness of Venice makes this course particularly dear to all golfers who enjoy a visit to that marvellous, unique and delicate town, whether their trip is for pleasure or business.

Comment read on the Peugeot Golf Guide
As Venice is sheer magic at dawn and nightfall, you have the whole day in between to play this course at the far western tip of the Lido, opposite the city of Doges, a very chic seaside resort which is also home to one of the rare casinos to be find in Italy. This course, however, is much more than just space in which you can try your luck at golf. Designed by Cruikshank and restyled by C.K. Cotton and Marco Croze, it stretches over dune land amidst poplar, pine and olive trees. The obvious British architecture here has aged well and you find yourself rather happy not to have to ask too many tactical questions when your game is off-colour. Caution is required nonetheless, as mistakes can occur so easily in such a pleasant setting and prove costly for your card or match-play score. A few water hazards and frequent wind add a little spice to this excellent feast of golf.
