Playing golf in the Dolomites
Happiness in (and on the) green!
Enjoying golfing in the Val d’Ega also means enjoying nature to the full! Mountain ranges on the horizon, tree lines at the edge of the course. Relaxing comes naturally when you are golfing.
Golfing in the Val d’Ega: the numbers
The two golf courses in the Val d’Ega are playable from April-May through to November: ‘The Mountain Beast’ awaits eager golfers in Carezza, with the Petersberg Golfclub in the eponymous Monte San Pietro (Petersberg), 9 holes vs. 18 holes, the former par 70, the latter par 71. No golfing without an apt culinary setting: the two club houses offer Alpine-Mediterranean cuisine, fine wines and a harmonious, elegant atmosphere.
The golf course at Monte San Pietro is South Tyrol’s oldest 18-hole course, while the Carezza course, located at 1,680 metres above sea level, is its highest. Golf tourism started as early as the beginning of the 20th century in the Val d’Ega, with a 9-hole course laid out at the Passo Costalunga, attracting large numbers of vacationers to play golf at the foot of the Catinaccio massif. Although the facility was abandoned in the course of the century, the greens were reopened in the 1990s – and the beautiful setting hasn’t lost any of its golfing charm, of course!
