THE GOLF COURSE
Course of 18 holes, PAR 72, length of 6039 meters from normal standards and 6199 meters from championship tees. It was built in 1928 and expanded to 18 holes in 1951 in a spectacular spit of land, between the Adriatic Sea and the Venice lagoon. It shares many characteristics of links, the bora and sirocco winds that often appear in the field increase the challenge and require a game control to take the greens well protected by the bunkers.
Many fairways are outlined by a great variety of trees, such as maritime pines, weeping willows, poplars and mulberries which underline the importance of precision from the tee. The design includes holes well protected by bunkers, where the drive must be precise to find the landing area, and other longer holes that require a more powerful drive. On the first nine there are 2 difficult par 3s: the hole 2 with a distance of only 128 meters where, however, a very accurate precision is required to take the green; the long hole 5, which is constantly under the effect of the sea breeze, requires a good shot with a long iron or a hybrid and the third par 3 is the legendary 9th hole, a hole worthy of the best tradition of a link, with a blind shot through the fort.
The second nine holes are longer and include 2 excellent par 5s, 11 and 13 that take you to the final detachment, 5 consecutive par 4 snaking through the trees and requiring greater precision from the tee and fairway to be able to take small and raised green always well protected. Although the holes are relatively short compared to modern standards, the old saying that “the tour is not finished until it is finished” is certainly related to these spectacular last holes. The Circolo Golf Venezia is classified by “Il Mondo del Golf” as one of the top ten courses in Italy. Over the years it has hosted various editions of: PGA European Tour Italian Open, PGA European Tour Seniors Open, Vagliano Trophy, Italian Amateur Championship, Italian Stroke Play Amateur Championship and Italian Foursomes Amateur Championship.
