Four Golf Clubs only a few kilometres from Padua, in the green of the Euganean Hills, feature excellent design and top-level equipment
Set in the enchanting landscape of the Euganean Hills, all the golf courses in the county of Padua are well designed and offer high quality equipment. Being located a few kilometres from both the town of Padua and the spa area of Abano, Montegrotto, and Galzignano Terme, golf players can easily find the ideal accommodation for their stay here and reach the golf courses in a short time.
Golf Club Padova is the first golf course in the whole county, having been established in 1962. The course was designed by the English architect John Harris with 18 holes, par 72, at the foot of the Euganean Hills on a 70-hectare plot of land that borders with Villa Barbarigo, dating from the 17th century. The course is a true botanic garden, with 8000 trees and bushes that were chosen out of landscape and technical reasons: this is how a championship course was created, which winds amid water expanses and strategic sand obstacles. Since March 2003 the Club can offer also a course with 9 holes, par 36, designed by architect Marco Croze. The Club services include an extremely comfortable clubhouse, a swimming pool, tennis courts, a gym, and an excellent restaurant.

Golf Club Frassanelle is located in a wonderful park designed towards the middle of the 19th century by the famous architect from Venice Giuseppe Jappelli, who aimed at recreating the charm of the English countryside in the Veneto landscape: large open spaces, woods and a wonderful lake are the background to this 18-hole golf course. The clubhouse is in a wonderful 17th-century cottage, restored and furnished according to the British taste for golf clubhouses. The course was designed by Marco Croze and it offers a perfect rhythm of lakes, brooks, and green clearings. Hole 15 cannot be forgotten: called La Regina (the Queen), its 150-meter par crosses the lake to reach the Green enclosed in a solemn crown of trees. The Golf Club offers a modern and well equipped facility with sauna bath, solarium, and every comfort for perfect relax.
