Golf & Country Club Castello di Spessa, Friuli
A fascinating 18-hole course set among the vineyards of Capriva del Friuli at the foot of a thousand-year-old castle.
The Golf & Country Club Castello di Spessa is located in a resort developed around a 13th century manor house, the cradle of hospitality, wine and food, wellness & SPA and tasting of the estate’s products. The unique charm of Castello di Spessa Golf & Country Club will leave you speechless.
Opened in 2005, the course is located in the Collio Goriziano, surrounded by the estate’s vineyards, and each hole is named after a wine of the estate or an autochthonous variety.The 18-hole course (PAR 71, 5,460 meters long) is divided into two sectors: the first nine holes are on the more hilly and scenic part of the course, while the remaining holes are on the flatter area through which the Versa River flows.
The course was built around the castle, which can be seen in all its beauty from different angles. The geographical position offers a pleasant climate all year round, a feature that guarantees a good influx of golfers from across the border and especially from Slovenia and Austria.
However, the charm of the location, the gastronomic offer, the SPA and the hospitality of Spessa Castle also attract visitors from the rest of the world.
It is a technical course with different difficulties, particularly demanding and where golfers who like to play accompanied by their dogs are also welcome.
The driving range has 20 teeing grounds, while the putting green is located at the foot of the Verzura Theater, the brand new open-air theater characterized by its green lawn terraces and perfectly integrated into the park, which hosts opera concerts and other important cultural events during the summer season.
It is considered an ecological area, as no harmful substances are used that pollute people and the environment.
Thanks to the skillful maintenance of the team led by super-intendent Matija Pipan, who participated as a greenkeeper in the last DP World Tour and the 2018 Ryder Cup, the course is always well maintained.
In recent years, numerous investments have been made, numerous tournaments have been organized, and the number of members is constantly increasing. Signage throughout the course has recently been updated, and major new equipment has been purchased for lawn maintenance.
Recent work has made the course even more beautiful and enjoyable, as attention to detail is a must for the entire resort, where guests and members can play golf and then enjoy all the other amenities of the facility. An example of this are the four proposals for staying in close contact with the vineyards and nature and the three refreshment areas. Not to be missed is the brand new Vinum SPA, where golfers can relax after their game with massages, saunas and Turkish baths and enjoy all the benefits of wine therapy.
For a complete experience, golfers can also visit the medieval wine cellars and taste the estate’s wines and grappas – by appointment.
Castello di Spessa Golf Wine Resort & SPA aims to give every guest the memory of an unforgettable vacation surrounded by land, fun and relaxation. Golfers, in particular, will discover a true paradise here: a well-kept and stimulating 18-hole course with services thought out down to the last detail and equipped with every comfort.
