Designed by the German architect Kurt Rossknecht who, after his numerous projects in Europe and South Africa, took on the challenge of constructing his first golf course in Italy, making the best possible use of the natural and historical wealth of the Abbey of San Vigilio.
Having an expanse of 110 hectares to work with, Rossknecht developed a 27-sample hole course with another 9 executive holes, creating a circuit that interprets perfectly the original characteristics of the plot.
With a maximum extension of 6775 metres from the “Gold championship” tees and 5070 metres from the “Ladies” tees, with another three intermediate teeing areas, the course is capable of offering a tough challenge for more experienced players, yet a thoroughly enjoyable circuit for beginners.
The water hazards, greens well defended by strategically positioned bunkers, the articulated fairways surrounded by extensive rough, as well as the wide range of combinations offered by the 18-hole circuit with three different teeing areas, ensure that the game is always varied.
A long, wide Driving Range completes the circuit, with numerous tee-boxes.
The beauty of the landscape. Pozzolengo nestles in the natural amphitheatre created by the Moreniche hills, inhabited since the Neolithic period.
The landscape is characterised by woodland areas and plains, lakes and natural springs, varied fields and orderly rows of vines, indications of the care and attention man has shown in preserving and making the most of this natural oasis.
A land that also boasts a rich history, where echoes from the long-lost Etruscan, Gallic and ancient Roman settlements can be felt and evidence of battles fought during the period of the “Risorgimento” can be seen.
