GOLF VERBANIA HISTORY
The Golf & Sporting Club Verbania was founded in 1996 by a group of passionate golfers and soon became the focal point and privileged meta of many golfers in the VCO, golfers from the metropolis of Milan and many tourists who, in spring and summer, frequent Lake Maggiore.
The club has more than 300 members and more than 6,000 guests every year with more than 5,000 participating in matches.
During the high season the club also organizes cuisine manifestations, concerts and various events.
The activities of the club are recorded in the specialized press and local newspapers; its central position in the VCO Province, the aspect of the course and the favourable climatic conditions of the area, allows it to remain open all year round; it is easily accessable by means of the nearby motorway and is an attractive and excellent center inside our territory.
The Golf Club, which has been built within the new province of Verbania, a touristic province well known for its beautiful environment, has two courses; one regular 9 hole course with double man's and woman's tee shots par 68 and one executive 9 hole course par 27.
These courses are situated on flat land by the charming Lake Mergozzo with a beautiful view of the Alps which creates its suggestive natural surroundings.
Its closeness to both Switzerland and Milan along with its position, located within a vast golfing district, make this golf club an advisable destination for many golfers, who can combine practising their favourite sport with trips to the many pleasant touristic towns and villages nearby in the Ossola Valley and Lake Maggiore.
The game is made varied and interesting due to the ponds and the vast wood, full of alder trees, but at the same time is also relaxing and not too tiring due to the peaceful surroundings of the course.
A young and informal club, it distinguishes itself for the hospitality and friendliness of the management, who always have a smile and are ready to give advice to golfers and friends who come to club.
