Udine - Italy
The Udine Golf Club is located in Fagagna, one of the most beautiful villages of Italy, surrounded by majestic hills covered by oak and beech trees against the backdrop of the Carnic Alps. It enjoys a very central position, lying a dozen kilometres from Udine and San Daniele.
Founded in 1970, it obtained the affiliation to the Federation in 1972. The English architect John Dering Harris, an already excellent golfer, after having assessed the undulations of the terrain and being assisted by the Venetian Marco Croze (a life for golf), prepared a first draft for 9 holes. Croze himself completed the golf course in 1995 by harmoniously supplementing it with additional 9 holes within the 73 hectares of the grounds. In 2013, Gabriele Lualdi concluded the acquisition of the golf complex and a year later engaged the agronomist Fulvio Bani to carry out a complete restyling of the golf course. This was a restyling that was not limited to the course only but involved all the complementary services in order to make it an important golf course in southern Europe. Currently, the competition course is a Par 72. Technically challenging, it covers a length of more than 6.300 metres, following the contours of the morainic hills where it is located.
