Golf Club della Montecchia
The Montecchia Golf Club was founded in 1988 by a group of businessmen from Padua, with the idea of creating an oasis of peace and tranquillity right outside the city. The Club is indeed located just minutes from the centre of Padua, and can be easily reached from multiple motorway routes (Venice, Bologna and Milan) as it is located near the city’s orbital motorway.
Built on a piece of land that was once the property of the Emo Capodilista Counts, the Club is adjacent to a medieval castle as well as a splendid Renaissance villa, still owned by that noble family. The clubhouse is in a building, which once housed a tobacco-drying facility, cleverly renovated to offer standard reception services in addition to two restaurants (Michelin stars), a snack bar and meeting rooms. Golf della Montecchia now has a new innovative indoor facility, the Montecchia Performance
Center, so golfers can train year round using simulators and new technologies for in-depth swing and putt analyses, plus there‘s a fitness area for functional golf training.
The course was the site of the 2001, 2002, 2012 and 2013 Challenge Tour as well as the 2010 and 2012 Alps Tour, which marked the opening of the Club to a wider market: not only local, but also national and international.
