Klubb- och banbeskrivning
The Golf Club Udine, founded in 1970 in Fagagna, at the heart of the morainal hills and a few kilometres from San Daniele and Udine, perfectly combines the pleasure of playing golf with an exclusive and relaxing landscape.
The trail is characterised by thick vegetation, with more than 7,000 trees inside the course, and wild stalks can be seen throughout the mornings and evenings.
The 18 holes, spaced out harmoniously across the 63 hectare field, were designed by the architects John Harris and Marco Croze. Since Summer 2013 the agronomist Fulvio Bani has been making major changes, with the aim of allowing international tournaments to be held at the course, such as the European Senior Tour contested at the end of October 2016.
Thanks to the constantly high standard with which the golf course is maintained and to its attention to the environment, the Golf Club Udine has been awarded both GEO certification, up until 2018, and Italian Gold Federation "Impegnati nel Verde" certification.
The driving range has a surface area of over 33,000 sq m and two separate facilities for long and short game practice. The two-floor long game building has ten ground-floor covered bays and ten on the grass. The bays are floodlit and partially heated. On the upper floor are 13 artificial-grass bays. The facility includes toilets, golf ball dispensers and golf cart parking. Opposite this facility is another area, linked by road, with room for 35 golfers at the same time.
The over-3000 sq m short game practice area includes two putting greens of 250 and 500 sq m, a pitching/chipping green and bunkers for practising short, medium and long shots.
At the Villaverde Championship Golf Course, golf professionals can use the Swing Studio, an area dedicated to them and equipped with the best technology: FlightScope, BodiTrak, SAM PuttLab and V1 to improve their game. They also have the modern practice field available to them with a synthetic target green and two putting green areas, a pitching-chipping green area and Bunkers in the grass.
Completely renovated Club House with the Villaverde Bar & Restaurant inside. An informal and welcoming environment characterised by the great glass walls and the broad terraces looking out on the panoramic golf course.
