“Gli Ulivi” Golf Club
In the shade of the ancient olive trees you will find the “Gli Ulivi” (The Olives) Golf Club , on the hills surrounding San Remo. The Club was founded in 1932 and designed by British architects, it is one of the most important golf clubs in the Mediterranean area and the very first golf club in Italy.
Set in a marvellous natural scenery, the Golf Club is surrounded by age-old olive groves and green hills in a panoramic position overlooking the Ligurian Sea.
It is the perfect place for golf enthusiasts and is suitable for both expert and beginner golfers.
After spending a relaxing day golfing the greens among the olive groves, you can then enjoy a tasty dinner at the Golf Club restaurant.
Throughout the year several important events are organized here, such as the International Winter Tournament in February organised by the Rotary Fellowship, the “Trofeo delle Due Riviere” (Trophy of the Two Rivieras) in March, and other events that take place in summer and fall.
