As a golfing parent, I also think a lot about where to take my family on a golfing holiday. Many of my friends are looking for opportunities how to spend more time with their loved ones. They are asking for recommendations from me.
If you have doubts about a family golf holiday, consider it as an opportunity for quality bonding time. You will gain improved communication and increased well-being in children and yourself.
At the same time, we have to understand not every golf club and resort is prepared for a multi-generational, family golf holiday.
I recently discovered a marvelous, family-oriented Italian golf club – Antognolla Golf Club: since 1998; 18 holes, 6071m, par-71 – located in close proximity to Perugia that I would like to share with you now.
One of the great advantages of Antognolla Golf Club is that you don’t have to travel a lot with the children to get there. You will appreciate this benefit if your family has young children (aged 6 and below).
The nearest international airport is the Perugia International Airport. Perugia International Airport receives Ryanair, British Airways, and Transavia (among others) direct flights from London, Vienna, Brussels, Rotterdam, Barcelona, etc.
Even by car, the journey through the soft rolling hills and small villages becomes an immersive pleasant drive also because the Italian roads and highways are good.
If you’re someone who enjoys staying active during your golf holidays, I suggest considering the Antognolla Golf Club as your next destination for a golf getaway.
The vicinity of Antognolla Golf Club offers an exhilarating experience, such that even if you are the only golfer in your family, your loved ones will still find plenty of engaging activities to enjoy.
5 tips for a memorable & exciting golf holiday
I’m only sharing these five options with you now, but if you need more ideas and recommendations, I’ll gladly tell you more.
Before I get started… I must tell you what a fabulous wine experience awaits you here in the vicinity of the golf club.
The Umbria wine region is located in central Italy, surrounded by Tuscany, Lazio, and Marche wine regions. A large number of different grape varieties thrive here.
This is why one of my recommendations is Torgiano. It is a nice fluvial village of Roman origins – just 43 km from Antognolla Golf Club – owes its fame to the excellent agricultural productions that have made it one of Italy’s most appreciated olive oil and wine capitals.
Although it is not as close as Torgiano, your children will definitely enjoy the Marmore waterfalls too. The highest waterfall in Europe, the Marmore Falls are one of Umbria’s most famous sights.
If your family enjoys lakes, then Lake Trasimeno (a 128-sq-km lake) – 48 km from Antognolla Golf Club – is a must-have for you. It provides an unspoiled nature and a refuge for birds and fish for outdoor enthusiasts.
All around the lake, you can find olive groves, woods of oak and cypress trees, vines, and sunflower fields framing castle-topped medieval towns, such as Castiglione del Lago and Passignano.
I do not doubt that the truffle hunt will put a spell on your entire family. Truffles and truffle hunting in this secluded Italian hideaway are an everyday part of life.
Umbria is the pinnacle of Italy’s truffle traditions and the culture that surrounds them. Umbria is one of the biggest truffle-producing areas of Italy. Find out more here: https://www.umbrianculture.com/truffle-hunting-in-umbria/
