The stage is set for Saturday June 25, 2016, when the BMW Golf Cup Internationalwill be hosted by the Golf Club Verona. With it’s geographically central location and easy accessibility from all main roads; this has become one of the top destinations for European golf tourism. The greens are maintained with an eye to environmental sustainability which has earned the golf club the prestigious Green Flag; an award issued by the “Committed to Green” Foundation which is dedicated to sports facilities with a conscientious ecological footprint. The tournament will be played over 18 holes at Stableford, with two male and female categories finishing out the circuit race.
The Club is nestled into the verdant hills of Custoza which is famous for the eponymous and renowned Veneto DOG white wine. The currents coming from the very large body of water that is Lake Garda have a unique impact on the surrounding vineyards by creating a favorable microclimate.Thanks to the temperature stabilizing effect of the lake, there is an almost atypical growing environment for a zone so northward. These mild temperatures make it particularly suitable for growing vines and even olives.
The participants and the many spectators will have the opportunity to taste a wine from a different terroir from the same region, the hills of Conegliano Valdobbiadene, also in Veneto. Follador Prosecco is the official supplier for the event and we raise a glass to all those competing and attending this weekend: our best wishes for a day of the sporting spirit and friendly conviviality.
