Bolzano is the capital of the autonomous province of Trentino-Alto Adige and is situated in a valley in the middle of hills rich in vineyards. It is the gateway to the Dolomites mountain range in the Italian Alps. In the medieval center of the city, the Archaeological Museum of South Tyrol is home to the Neolithic mummy, known as Ötzi, the man of the Similaun. Nearby are the imposing thirteenth-century Mareccio Castle and the Cathedral of Bolzano characterized by Gothic-Romanesque architecture.

The Golf Courses

GOLF CLUB EPPAN

  • The new 9-hole golf course is located on the outskirts of the tourist town of Appiano, in South Tyrol. With its perfect greens and many small lakes, surrounded by a marvelous mountain panorama, the course envelops any golfer with its charm. The extremely flat topography and the relatively high level of the groundwater were decisive traits in the design work, to give life to a field with numerous water mirrors. Artificial lakes also serve as a water reservoir for irrigation of the field with a positive impact on the ecological and landscape level. Furthermore, the so-called areas with extensive cultivation enrich the golf course and create a unique natural scenery.

The Carezza Golf Club has existed for 24 years and is one of the jewels of South Tyrol. The golf course is a complex course classified par 70 and often the scene of spectacular golf tournaments, such as the Alpin Iron Man, one of the most challenging tournaments in the region.
