People who enjoy golf and love wide open countryside will find courses of an excellent level in the foothills of the Bergamask mountains, surrounded by breathtaking scenery. The facilities vary and range from a simple practice range to a prestigious 27-hole course. And if the weather is bad, there’s even an indoor golf range in Bergamo.
The passion for the green
A golfer can find many highly acclaimed courses in the province of Bergamo. The best known is Albenza Golf Club, situated in the Romanesque area of Almenno S. Bartolomeo. This historic and challenging course is set in a beautiful landscape surrounded by conifers and broad-leaved woodland. The golf club has a course of 27 holes, designed by the renowned British partnership of Cotton & Sutton, which features several small greens that are well protected by trees and water courses.
La Rossera Golf Club is set in an enchanting natural environment among the vineyards and fruit orchards of Chiuduno. The course is hilly and, although only 9 holes, is very challenging due to the many out-of-bounds areas and the position of its greens.
The Colli di Bergamo Golf & Country Club is the city golf course. It is situated on the hills below Città Alta and offers a unique panorama. The course, although only 9 holes, offers different obstacles, such as bunkers, ponds and strategic out-of-bounds areas.
Finally the Presolana Golf Club, a practice range at an altitude of 1,200 metres, is situated in a pass dominated by the dolomitic Presolana mountain and surrounded by the dense pine forests of the Monte Pora ski resort.
The well-equipped Indoor golf range in Mozzo, just a stone’s throw from Bergamo, is ideal for practising all year round.
