Molino del Pero Golf Club offers an 18-hole par 70 course that covers 5,480 metres and is varied, technical and fun. Set in the magnificent Apennines near Bologna, it perfectly combines the exigencies of the most skilled players with those of players who consider golf a way to enjoy the surroundings to the full. The first 9 holes, which are short and technically demanding, are perfectly complemented by the second 9 holes that are much longer and wider but equally spectacular. Thanks to the particularly pleasant climate – breezy in the summer and never foggy in winter – it is possible to play here all year round. It has a wonderful club house located in a converted hay barn and its enormous oak beams and large fireplace ensure it is always warm and welcoming. The restaurant, in the old grinding room, serves excellent quality, traditional local cuisine.
