The course, designed by the famous American architect Brian M. Silva, extends over the lush green expanse of the Valmarecchia Park. All around, it offers unrivalled and truly breathtaking views of the medieval boroughs of Verucchio, Torriana and San Leo. In the background, it is possible to make out the castles of San Marino and Mount Carpegna. This beautiful, American-inspired golf course is situated just a few kilometres from Rimini and its international airport.
