Built in 1987 just outside Modena, the Club was designed by Bernhard Langer, with assistance from American architect Jim Eng, from Boulder, Colorado. Together they planned the ideal orientation of each hole in relation to the terrain’s morphological characteristics. Then it was the German champion himself who personally demonstrated the quality of the design techniques, on a course ideal for an aggressive style of play, in a brief display during his official visit in 1991. Its constructional characteristics have made the golf course, built on an area covering over a hundred hectares, one of the finest in Italy. Depending on the opening tee shots, the course can be scary for professionals and fun for amateur players. Two par 3s have greens surrounded by water, while a large lake awaits the brave at hole 18. You can attempt the prodigious feat, or more cautiously go around the obstacle, avoiding the long shot across the water. The spacious greens and tees, the design of the fairways and the five artificial lakes make the course the ideal location for high-level competitions such as the Italian Open, whose 50th edition was played here. The sports facility also includes an executive course, a large driving range and two tennis courts. After their efforts on the golf course, players and their guests can enjoy the restaurant offering sophisticated recipes and local delicacies, a bar, two swimming pools, a billiards room, and TV and card rooms. The Modena Golf & Country Club is strategically located, and it can be reached quickly and easily from any direction. It is near Modena (just 10 km) Sassuolo, Vignola, Carpi and other important locations in the area.
