18 holes, par 72 course, 6039 metres from normal standards and 6199 from championship tees. It was built in 1928 and enlarged to 18 holes in 1951 in a spectacular strip of land between the Adriatic Sea and the Lagoon of Venice. It shares several links features and the bora and sirocco winds that often impact the course, increase the challenge and require game control to hit the greens, which are well protected by bunkers. Holes 1 to 9: Many fairways are outlined by a variety of trees, such as maritime pines, willow trees, poplars and mulberries underlining the importance of accuracy from tee. The design includes holes well guarded by bunkers, where the drive must be accurate in order to find the landing area, as well as longer holes requiring a more powerful drive. The front nine present two difficult par 3: hole 2, with a distance of just 128 metres, where high accuracy is required to hit the green and hole 5 that, under constant influence of the marine breeze, requires a good long iron or hybrid shot. And then, the third par 3, the legendary hole 9, worthy of a link’s best tradition, with a blind shot crossing through the fort. Holes 10 to 18: The second 9 holes are longer and include 2 excellent par 5, namely hole 11 and 13 – leading to the final stretch, 5 consecutive par 4 meander among the trees and require greater tee or fairway accuracy to hit the small and elevated greens which are always well protected. Although the holes are relatively short with respect to modern standards, the old saying that “the round is not over until it’s over” surely applies to these spectacular final holes. The Circolo Golf Venezia has been rated by the official Italian golf magazine “Il Mondo del Golf” as one of the ten best courses in Italy. During the years, it has hosted numerous editions of PGA European Tour Italian Open, PGA European Tour Seniors Open, Vagliano Trophy, Italian Amateur Championship, Italian Stroke Play Amateur Championship and Italian Foursomes Amateur Championship.
