I'll be visiting my daughter in Aviano, Italy in early August, and we might make some time for golf. A few questions: Anyone have any tips for playing golf up north of Venice? Heck, it's less than 2hr from Slovenia- so maybe over there too. Is it true that European courses enforce that you have a valid handicap? http://www.golfclubcasteldaviano.it/it-IT/il-campo/dettaglio-del-percorso Here is one course near her (not too many nearby), and I see they mention that visitors must have a handicap from a club. Are tee times tough to get? Some cool pics of the public course mentioned above. Looks like it's partly up in the hills and trees (right half), and partly in an open valley (left half). The routing of the holes is not what I see typically here in the States. Doesn't look like the 9th green is anywhere near the clubhouse. The front 9 is par 37, with only one par 3. Then the back 9 is par 35 with three par 3's. This pic is from their 1 HCP hole (#2), which is up in the hilly part. Fairway looks tight from this angle (but no so much in the graphic above), and doesn't look pretty to miss the green long or left. And then the course just gets totally open for a bunch of holes with a nice view of the mountains. Any thoughts on things to watch out for when golfing in northern Italy would be appreciated. I might just stick around the military facility for their 9-hole course, but it would be a blast to get out to see public golf in Italy.
