course at the Golf Club Verona is charming and spectacular. It lies
completely among the gentle hills of the region around Verona, between
the town of Romeo and Juliet and Lake Garda. The course is fairly
irregular, with broad undulating fairways. There are not many water
barriers, only two small lakes and a few ditches. However, it is a
course that is fairly tiring for golfers who are not in training, on
account of the frequent gradients. Laid out in 1963, the Golf Club
Verona remains open all year round, thanks to the nearness of Lake Garda
which makes the local climate particularly temperate.
Comment read on the Peugeot Golf Guide
When you love tear-jerking tales of love and grief, you can hardly wish of a better setting than Verona, home to the tragic story of Romeo and Juliette. The house (Via Cappello) and tomb of Juliette are worth going out your way for after an opera at the Arena or a coffee on the Piazza delle Erbe. Whichever way you look at it, Verona is a superb city made even more attractive by the closeness of Lake Garda. The Verona Golf Club was founded in 1963 and the course laid out in two stages by John Harris, in a British parkland style consistent with the architect's own style. Very hilly, this course warrants a buggy for the more unfit golfer and a lot of concentration to hit some elevated greens (and one blind green as well). The first holes are rather narrow and tricky to negotiate - some dangerous out-of-bounds await the mis-hit shot - while the back 9 are wider with a few water hazards and shouldn't do too much damage to your card if you have scored well over the front nine.

One of Italy’s largest regions, Lombardy lies in the north of the country, sharing a border with Switzerland.
Stretching from the Alps to the lowlands of the Po Valley, it is home to a wide range of landscapes, including the breathtaking mountain chain that boasts the Valchiavenna, Valtellina and the Camonica Valley.
Winter sports enthusiasts will find no lack of state-of-the-art facilities in Lombardy, for example in the extremely popular resorts of Tonale, Bormio, Livigno and Madesimo.
Another aspect that defines the region is its expanse of rolling hills that encompass the distinctive Franciacorta area, famous for its vineyards and wine production. The charm of the great lakes is a great tourist draw, attracting visitors to Sirmione and other well known destinations dotting the western coast of Lake Garda, while Lake Como and Lake Maggiore are no less beautiful, surrounded as they are by stately homes, parks and picturesque small towns.
The region is also characterized by the great flat tracts of the Po Valley lowlands, covered by shimmering mirrors of water and rice paddies: this is the typical landscape of Lomellina, the land of rice harvesters, steeped in tradition.
The region has countless other distinctive facets. Lombardy, aided by its geographic position and fertile soil, will captivate you - nature, history, art and culture marry in harmony with innovation, technology, fashion, entertainment, and a contemporary outlook.
The region comprises the provinces of Bergamo, Brescia, Como, Cremona, Lecco, Lodi, Mantua, Milan (regional capital), Monza and Brianza, Pavia, Sondrio and Varese.
