Another golf course on Lake Garda is located in Sommacampagna, in the province of Verona, among the hills where Custoza wine is produced and only 20 km from the lake.

The origins of the Golf Club Verona date back to 1960, and since then the course has undergone several redesigns and revisions: today it hosts an 18-hole course (with par 72), the first 9 quite close to each other, while the remaining ones are much more spaced out.
In addition to convenient services such as the swimming pool, bar, and restaurant, there is a prestigious academy where players of all ages and levels are followed by highly skilled professional golfers.
