What a joy it will be to have the experience of playing
golf directly in your beautiful land of origin!
The first international golf tournament for Friulani nel
Mondo will gather together Friulians from different parts
of the world who will meet at Castello di Spessa Resorts
for a week full of fun, sports challenge, reciprocal knowledge
as well as world class food and wine.
Inspired by the beauty of the Friuli-Venezia Giulia landscape
dotted with vineyards, castles, Roman ruins, idyllic villages
and unpolluted lagoons, we have chosen to play at three
premier golf clubs that stand out as some of the most complete
and well equipped golf courses in the Triveneto area: Golf
Club Udine in the heart of Friuli, Golf Club Grado on the
sunny lagoon island and Golf and Country Club Gorizia -
Castello di Spessa in the heart of the Collio wine region.
The golf combined with soaking up the renowned Friulian
hospitality will provide many fond memories that all will
cherish for a lifetime.
Golf Club Udine
in 1973, this splendid 18-hole golf club is situated in
Fagagna, just outside the city of Udine in marvellous surroundings.
Protected by century-old oak trees and the light shadow
of wild cherry and alder trees, it exploits at best the
natural characteristic of its undulating landscape that
also features two lakes and a stream crossing four holes.
A demanding course at an excellent technical level with
ample fairways and small greens that will put even expert
golfers to the test. The high quality of the course is surely
due to its excellent maintenance and constant improvement.
After the round, the Club House offers a pleasant and welcoming
environment with two large terraces and restaurant.
Golf Club Grado

Grado, situated in one of the most scenic locations on the
sunny island bearing the same name. Surrounded by an amazing
natural lagoon environment, it features numerous water hazards
and rather interesting holes. Founded in 1997, the course
is technical and very pleasant for non professionals as
well. It belongs to the charming "Tenuta Primero" estate,
which includes outstanding accommodation structures, a marina
with 200 boat places and the refined "Casone" restaurant

and whose architecture reminds you of typical local fishermen
Golf and Country Club Gorizia - Castello di Spessa
and Country Club Gorizia - Castello di Spessa is a new 18-hole
golf course located in Capriva del Friuli, Gorizia, in a
spectacular setting that offers magnificent views over the
surrounding Collio hills covered with vineyards and cypress
trees which also make up the obstacles that the golfer comes
up against. Extending over a 5,850-metre track with a total
par of 71, the course was designed by the famous golf architect
Giacomo Cabrini who really highlighted the natural beauty
of the place without damaging it. The route involves special
difficulties to make it a challenge for expert players,
but it is still very enjoyable and practicable for any level
of player. The decidedly mild climate offers the possibility
of playing all year round.
