The slogan chosen by the Lana and Environs Tourist Association, Lana unites, is perfect for expressing all the contrasts that this part of South Tyrol manages to reconcile: in cuisine, culture, climate, landscape and even sport.
For while the Lana region offers the possibility of adrenalin-pumping sports such as skiing, rafting and paragliding, it also has facilities for quieter, more concentrated sports such as golf.
In the area of Lana di Sotto, just below the ruins of Brandis Castle, there is a 9-hole golf course, designed by Michael Pinner, a well-known English golf course designer
Nestled between vineyards and apple orchards, and with a panoramic view of the Adige Valley, the wonderful Golfparcours features, over a length of 2,800 metres, three Par 3, four Par 4 and two Par 5 holes. Its minimal height difference makes it particularly suitable for beginners, although its length requires strength and precision, characteristic of experienced golfers. The course also has 12 tee-offs, 8 of which are protected from sun and rain, and an 18-hole putting green.
Thanks to a particularly favourable climate, the Lana course is open practically all year round, specifically from February to November, when the Golf Club Lana organises various tournaments, including the well-known “Apple Blossom Tournament”, which is usually played in April.
The Golf Club Lana also offers young people and adults the Golf School, with individual and group lessons held by head pro Kuno Profanter.
In addition to the clubhouse, the facility includes a restaurant, a lounge bar, a typical trattoria in the nearby Brandiskeller wine cellar and a shop with sports-elegant clothes and accessories for golf enthusiasts.
In addition, many hotels are partners of the Lana Golf Club and offer golfers special discounts and services.
