A special place for golf in Venice
People who would like to play golf during their stay in Venice will find in the Venice Golf Club (par 72) an ancient and well-established golf club, since it dates back to 1920s, allegedly born from an initiative of Henry Ford who first understood the great potential of Lido island: a huge space still available at a short distance from Venice.
Nowadays, the privileged site to practice golf in Venice is still the Lido, in the area of Alberoni (on the Southern part of the island), a place personally chosen by Count Volpi di Misurata. Among the people who played golf here (initially a 9 holes golf), Mussolini and Henry Cotton.
At a short distance from the Venice golf club there is a protected area of WWF, to protect lagoon’s animals and plants.
