Modena Golf & Country Club
The Modena Golf & Country Club, designed by Bernhard Langer, is a perfectly maintained parkland course, offering a fantastic round of golf. The club spreads over 100 hectares and with several unique holes over a beautiful landscape, the Modena Golf & Country Club has rightly obtained the reputation as one of the finest in Italy.
The course is situated in a prime location, just 10 kilometres away from the town of Modena, with the fascinating towns of Sassuolo and Carpi situated nearby. Therefore, conveniently for golfers in the area, it is easily accessible from all the major tourist areas. Characterised by its wide greens, immaculate winding fairways, captivating bunkers, and sizeable water hazards, this American style course has been the ideal venue for the Italian Open over the last 50 years.

This course, stretching just over 7,000 yards, is a stern challenge, ideal for long hitters. Combined with well protected greens, an accurate pitch on this golf course will prove crucial to a good score. It is fair to say that Bernhard Langer has successfully constructed an excellent golf course bearing an invigorating challenge that can be appreciated by all. This course has been designed magnificently, and with long and challenging tree-lined greens, it is essential that players take their time with this golf course. Despite the holes meandering across a relatively flat terrain, there is the occasional mounded terrain, therefore it is encouraged that players study the course map beforehand.
An impressive 7 holes at the Modena Golf & Country Club feature water hazards, therefore it is always encouraged that players proceed with caution. As well as water hazards playing a big part in creating an entertaining challenge, with greenery and forestry lining many of the fairways, wayward shots are not often forgiven or easily retrievable. However, with relatively wide fairways, players are typically given plenty of room for error.
A few signature holes at the Modena Golf & Country Club includes the par-3 6th and 11th holes, which both demand the concentration of players as they are forced to utilise the length and accuracy in their shots. They both require tee-to-green carries across small lakes, so it is always encouraged to allocate plenty of spare balls when playing these holes!
The fine gourmet restaurant at the club house rounds off a fantastic round and a superb day at Modena Golf & Country Club, which makes a great golfing option for your Emilia Romagna golf holiday.
