The charm of Costa Smeralda – undisputed queen of fashion, design sophistication, gastronomy, and sport – is getting ready to celebrate the arrival of the golden season.
Nestled between the Gulf of Pevero and Cala di Volpe bay, the Pevero Golf Club arose from the 1969 futuristic vision of Robert Trent Jones. It offers an 18-hole, 72 par course spreading over almost 60 hectares, among natural lakes, granite rocks, and fragrant underbrush including juniper, myrtle, and strawberry trees.
It has been listed in the rankings of Top 100 Golf of the World for years, an inevitable consequence of the unique skyline and the course difficulty level which puts even the most expert golfers to the test.
Belonging to Qatar Holding, and being part of the Costa Smeralda “brand” along with other Luxury Hotels (Cala di Volpe, Romazzino, Pitrizza, and Cervo), Pevero Golf Course is in a class by itself.
Just as the pastoral landscape changes forms and shades, each hole is different from the next. Every arrival or departure offers a captivating focal point for the player, such as the outline of nearby Corsica from tee on the 4th hole, surrounded by rocks polished smooth by the wind. While the course is picturesque, there are many obstacles and hazards which demand complete concentration. Memories of the Italian Open in 1978 are still vivid, when Dale Hayes beat Tommy Horton with a score of 293, 5 over par for the course.
500 VIP members gather in the famous Club House, designed by architect Riccardo Bonicatti. Gallura pink granite, cotto tile, and wicker furniture lead the way to unforgettable terraces overlooking crystal clear beaches. Pevero Golf Club: for a luxurious experience at one of the most pleasant fairways in Europe.
