The golf course meanders along the right bank of the River Conca, an area of outstanding natural beauty and notable avifaunal interest. The 18-hole course was planned by the famous designer Graham Cooke to adapt to the gently rolling hills of the countryside near San Giovanni in Marignano. The joy of playing golf is the philosophy the course designer has succeeded in transferring to the 18 holes, which cover 6,412 metres. As well as two 18-hole putting greens and brand new pitching and chipping greens - created by emphasising the three-dimensional effect so golfers can work on their deep shots - there is a driving range with heated, floodlit stations. New for 2011, 9 Executive holes Pitch & Putt. After the game, prepare to be pampered at Rivierabeauty where, as well as a sauna, steam bath and whirlpool course, the beauty centre offers a vast range of treatments. At Rivieragolfresort, surrounded by the lush green countryside of the Malatesta Seignory, where the tranquillity of the inland area meets the best local flavours and fragrances, guests can enjoy a wonderful mix of sport, relaxation and wellness.
