Players at the Betulle are always pleasantly surprised at the beautiful natural surroundings; The views are splendid: the morainic Serra hill to the left, the foothills of the Alps which seem to form the boundary of the Biella Golf Club. The 18-hole "Betulle" course, which is rated as one of the ten best courses in Italy, is situated at an altitude of about 600 metres above sea level. It was designed in 1957 by the English architect John Morrison. A natural course, of high technical calibre, for many years the club hosted the prestigious "Lancia D'Oro" Trophy where the top European professionals played. The Club's amenities also include an elegant guesthouse with 20 rooms for golfing enthusiasts who also enjoy a peaceful country holiday.

Comment from Peugeot Golf Guide
Biella has made a name for Italian design. It is also the site of one of the more discreet but also one of the greatest golf courses in the whole of Italy, a course where architectural design plays second fiddle to the beauty of the landscape and terrain that were just made for golf. Yet it still took the designer skills of John Morrison to perfect the chemistry.
The course has since been lengthened to meet the demands of the modern game, but unless you have the technique of a budding champion, we would recommend the normal tees to avoid needless suffering. There is a very British feel to this course, which brings strategically located bunkers into play, along with diabolic ditches and no end of oak, chestnut and birch trees. Add to all this a remarkable touch of variety and you'll realize that here, sobriety does not necessarily mean monotony. All in all, a great test of golf in superb surroundings, but maybe a little too tough for inexperienced players.

The best region in the world in 2019 for Lonely Planet

This landlocked northwestern corner of Italy – former Savoy stronghold, crucible of Italian nationhood and 20th-century industrial powerhouse – is adept at playing to its strengths but not always so good at selling its considerable charms to visitors. However, with Turin’s contemporary-arts and electronic-music scenes flourishing, a very special self-portrait of Leonardo da Vinci squirrelled away in the city’s Biblioteca Reale, sublimely remote Alpine walking trails and a clutch of exquisitely bucolic villages and valleys offering up arguably Italy’s best reds (wine) and whites (truffles), it might not be just the savvy, arty, foodie traveller’s secret for much longer.
