 The Palazzo Arzaga Hotel SPA and Golf Resort is surrounded by Lake Garda's tranquil countryside in the town of Calvagese della Riviera, and is only a 15-minute drive from the charming town of Desenzano.

Elegantly furnished and characterised by stately marble, wood-beamed ceilings, original frescoes, antique furniture and stone stairs leading to the upper floors, passing under its antique arches. The Palazzo Arzaga is well deserving of its status as a member of the `Leading Hotels of the World`.

All of the guest rooms of this 15th century hotel are finely decorated in a traditional Lombardian-Venetian style, meaning Golf enthusiasts can enjoy the facilities of the hotel, as well as its two renowned golf courses, which are situated between the impressive Alps and Lake Garda.

9 HOLE GARY PLAYER: The great South African champion has cleverly interpreted the sinuosity of Valtenesi. He wanted the green to be protected by round bunkers and sometimes deep as craters. This is a journey that will delight the most experienced golfers and entertain the neophytes, in a landscape of rare natural beauty.

18 HOLE JACK NICKLAUS II: Designed by Jack Nicklaus in collaboration with Gary Player, this 18-hole course challenges a player’s course management ability. Strategically placed bunkers, tiered and sloped greens, as well as 5 imposing lakes, all pose a variety of threats to be considered before every shot. The course also offers scenic views of the surrounding Italian mountains, leading to a fascinating and visually spectacular round.  

For some relaxation, guests can unwind at the Palazzo Arzaga Hotel`s Spa, which offers a wide range of wellness, massage and beauty treatments. They can also savour the best Italian and international cuisine at the hotel's main restaurant `Il Moretto`, where an authentic and sophisticated atmosphere is accompanied by delightful dishes, that are inspired by local specialities and created from Italian ingredients. `Il Moretto` also offers a selection of the finest local wines, creating an exceptional and authentic dining experience.

Gardagolf

 Gardagolf Country Club is considered to be one of the best courses built in Italy over the past thirty years. Designed by the British architects Cotton, Pennik Steel & Partners, Gardagolf County Club includes 27 holes between the Rocca di Manerba, the Soiano Castle and the Valtenesi hills with a panoramic view of extraordinary beauty, temptating players to stop and admire the landscape. Comprised of three 9-hole courses Gardagolf is a very challenging course; 


The Red route runs in the hills dominated by the Castle of Soiano to the west and the City of Polpenazze to the east. The first 9 holes of Gardagolf offer picturesque views and an interesting design which is challenging to both experienced and beginner players alike.  The 2nd hole of the red route is a par 3 that has been recognised by Golf Magazine as "one of the 500 most beautiful holes in the world" due to its elevated tee and green defences that include a lake and large patches of flowers.  

The White route takes full advantage of the flat path from Soiano towards Manerba, and has holes with interesting features such as the 7th, a pronounced dogleg to the left with a treacherous lake that threatens ambitious tee shots.

The Yellow route, is the newest 9-holes at Gardagolf, but no less interesting or challenging. The small greens, defended by deep bunkers and water hazards make the Yellow route technical and challenging. On the Yellow route players must utilise their abilities of course management especially on holes like the 2nd, a par 4 with a water hazard 200 meters from the tees and greens small and well defended by deep bunkers.

Gardagolf Country Club is intended to be at the top of the golfing facilities in Europe in which availability, professionalism and courtesy of the staff come together to generate a hospitable environment, ideal for a game of golf. The 27-hole championship course is the ideal setting for the most important national and international tournaments but at the same time ideal for the amateur who wants to try their hand at an entertaining and technical course.
