The Croara Country Club is located on the north-western borders of Emilia Romagna, a few kilometers from Piacenza, in a hilly area that is positively influenced by the nearby Ligurian’s temperate climate.
The Club is second only to Bologna for history and tradition of this region and it’s immersed in a beautiful naturist scenery in the middle of the famous Val Trebbia.
The particularly happy position of the course, half placed on the alluvial deposits of the Trebbia River and the other half lying on the hills of the first Apennine offshoots, gives it characteristics of continuous variety of landscapes and game situations.
The Croara Country Club on one side is bordered by the Trebbia river from which the valley takes its name and, on the other, by an immense secular wood of oaks (chestnut trees, poplars, sturgeons), presenting panoramic views of rare beauty; the Castle of Rivalta and the opening on the valley are the main testimonies.
- 6,065 metres
- 18 holes
- par 72
The course was founded in 1976 with 9 holes for the design of architect R. Buratti and only later is completed by architect M. Croze, thus completing the 18 holes.
Technical and delicate (with an average narrow fairway), the path can be played with fluidity and naturalness, but you can hardly beat it in the first round: water and out of bounds protect it very jealously, advising against even the most skilled useless risks.
The path has been consecrated by a high level international event such as the first Ladies Italian Open in 1987.
Worthy of note:
Worthy of note is certainly the ancient villa, surrounded by the beautiful park between swimming pool and tennis courts that in the 17th Century lent itself to summer holidays and housed the nobility of passage; beyond that, the real estate complex, the squares, the ancient church and the gardens are among the visits not to be missed.
In the inner courtyard and on the terrace of the “19th hole” that from the low holes it is very pleasant to enjoy a drink or a typical dish of the Piacenza cuisine in the quiet relaxation of the greenery.
The location, with an equipped meeting room, is perfect for organizing business meetings to combine a golf-themed play program thanks to the support of professional teachers and dynamic staff. Forwards the beautiful outdoor spaces and the small enchanting church make the Golf Croara a suitable location for organizing wedding parties or private parties.
