The Udine Golf Club is located in Fagagna, one of the most beautiful villages of Italy, surrounded by majestic hills covered by oak and beech trees against the backdrop of the Carnic Alps. It enjoys a very central position, lying a dozen kilometres from Udine and San Daniele (a town renowned for its ham). Only 10 minutes from the A23 motorway exit Gemona-Osoppo with a direct connection to Austria.
Founded in 1970, it obtained the affiliation to the Federation in 1972. The English architect John Dering Harris, an already excellent golfer, after having assessed the undulations of the terrain and being assisted by the Venetian Marco Croze (a life for golf), prepared a first draft for 9 holes. Croze himself completed the golf course in 1995 by harmoniously supplementing it with additional 9 holes within the 73 hectares of the grounds. In 2013, Gabriele Lualdi concluded the acquisition of the golf complex and a year later engaged the agronomist Fulvio Bani to carry out a complete restyling of the golf course. This was a restyling that was not limited to the course only but involved all the complementary services in order to make it an important golf course in southern Europe. Currently, the competition course is a Par 72. Technically challenging, it covers a length of more than 6.300 metres, following the contours of the morainic hills where it is located. Significant the Club House restyling and the new beautiful Driving Range. There have been 5 presidents of the Udine Golf Club: Dino Bruseschi 1972-1975, Paolo Malignani 1975 to 1992, Franco Marzona 1992-1994, Alberto Malignani 1994 to 2013, from 2013 to until today Gabriele Lualdi.
Especially noteworthy is the 15th hole, the longest hole of the golf course, with many trees on the right and a fairway on the left and a putting green that is frontally protected by a lake. The 18th hole, instead, has recently been completed and is a par 4 of about 380 meters uphill that ends in a very large green that is difficult to read correctly with its various slopes.
