Our top boating recommendations for golfers

Have you previously been tempted by a golf cruise? Many of our regions offer tie-up and tee-up opportunities, but Italy and Ireland are especially great for golf! Golf Club Grado’s 18-hole course is rated as one of Italy’s prettiest, and at Golf Club Villa Condulmer, you can play an 18-hole course right at an 18th-century villa. In the Veneto, you can put at least 3 golf courses on your itinerary and still have plenty of free time to explore the Venetian Lagoon. Enjoy championship golf courses in Ireland as well. The country known for its beautiful green landscapes doesn’t fall short when it comes to greens to tee off in. Choose from at least six excellent golf courses when travelling the Shannan-Erne!
