Golf courses: 


















Croara Country Club


The course is halfway between the Trebbia River alluvial deposits and the foothills of the Apennines, offering a variety of views and game opportunities.

You’ll find 18 highly technical holes, with fairly narrow fairways, surrounded by oaks, chestnuts, poplars, and locust-trees, and fascinating scenery along the riverbanks.

The course hosted the first Italian Women’s Open.

This is a hilly course that covers 2,900 meters, par 36, with alternating ascending, descending and terrace holes. Part of the course lies in a centennial oak and chestnut grove. There are water obstacles along the course that, in addition to affecting the game, are home to a variety of aquatic birds.  The golf course is overlooked by Castello della Bastardina, which dates from the 13th century.
