Golf among hills and vineyards
The Gavi hills are famous for the beautiful golf courses that spread out among the vineyards. From Locanda La Raia, it is very easy to reach three of them. The closest one is Golf Club Colline del Gavi (Tassarolo), 6 km away, surrounded by woodland: it features an 18-hole championship course, 9 executive holes and a restaurant. Golf Club Serravalle (Serravalle), also 6 km away, is located by Tenuta La Bollina. It features a 9-hole championship course and 3 executive holes. Finally, Golf Club Villa Carolina (Capriata d’Orba), 12 km away, boasts two 18-holes courses nestled in 110 hectares of woodland and vineyards. The club house has been created in the ancient Gavotti family’s summer residence. On the hill overlooking the course stands the monastery of Frati Contemplativi in Villa Bricco, donated by Carolina Gavotti to the order.
