Golf Club Frassanelle
The 18-hole course, created in 1990 by Marco Croze in a wonderful nineteenth-century park of over 200 hectares, presents remarkable suggestions and is rich in fauna and flora. Large open spaces, woods and numerous stretches of water, scattered along the way, soften and embellish the landscape and make the game more challenging. Unforgettable is the 15th hole, a par 3 of 150 meters, which crosses the large lake and reaches the green enclosed in a majestic frame of trees.
Golf Club Padova
The first golf course in Padua was born in 1962 on the initiative of the industrialist Igino Kofler and a group of passionate golfers with the name of Golf Club Euganeo. The course now includes 27 holes located at the foot of the Euganean Hills, bordering the seventeenth-century Villa Barbarigo, designed by the British architect John Harris of the London Cotton studio, the first 18 par 72 holes convey technical and landscape harmony at first sight thanks to the valuable contribution made by another historic president of the circle: Benedetto Sgaravatti. The field is a veritable botanical garden with 8000 trees and bushes chosen according to landscape and technical criteria, thus revealing a unique path that winds between mirrors of water and strategically distributed sand obstacles. The Golf Club Padova offers accommodation facilities such as swimming pool, sauna and gym and a mention deserves the well-known restaurant in the region and in the national golf scene. The Guest House is without doubt the center of social life for all members and guests who can take advantage of numerous services and a structure full of the best comforts in a relaxing atmosphere and in an elegant and exclusive context.
Golf Club Terme di Galzignano
The Galzignano Golf is the fourth route located in the enchanting setting of the Euganean Hills. Our 9-hole course with its 2,048 meters in length boasts an exclusive design enriched by water features and ponds that make it exciting and exciting: hole 4, for example, presents the tee in the middle of the lake, or the hole 9 with the Green that seems to float surrounded by water. It is a 9 hole par 31 course, divided into 6 par 3, 2 par 4 and 1 par 5.
After a good round of golf, there is nothing more relaxing than a whole day spent in a cozy spa, even better if in the company of friends or your partner. The thermal pools of Abano Terme open to the public are ready to welcome visitors with state-of-the-art facilities and prices accessible to all, providing differentiated rates based on the offer of the daily package.
The waters of the Euganean Basin originate from the rains that affect the area of the Small Dolomites and the Italian Pre-Alps and cross the subsoil for about 80 kilometers at a level of 3,000 meters underground, then flowing into the Poggio di Montirone area in Abano.
In the subsoil the thermal waters maintain a temperature equal to 100 degrees Celsius, reaching 200 degrees in some sections and cooling down to 87 degrees during the ascent to the surface.
Why are the thermal waters of Abano Terme special?
During their journey, the thermal waters are enriched with some beneficial mineral salts such as sodium, potassium, magnesium, iodine, bromine and silicon.
These elements exert a relaxing and protective action on our body: the water in the Abano Terme thermal pools has a positive effect on the immune system, developing an antiseptic action through the production of circulating immunoglobulins and stimulating mucous secretion.
The thermal water also helps reduce swelling and edema, favors an endocrine action on the thyroid and contributes to the stimulation of the female genital apparatus.
Not by chance, Abano is the most important and developed thermal resort in Italy, as well as one of the first in Europe.
