Ladies Italian Open

The Ladies Italian Open comes back to Piedmont

The International Golf comes back to Piedmont from the 2nd to the 4th June 2022 with the Open d’Italia Femminile (Ladies Italian Open) on the putting green of the Golf Club Margara of Fubine Monferrato, in the province of Alessandria: a countryside paradise between hills and vineyards. Here the competition celebrated its 25-year anniversary in 2021 (after seven years of pause).

 

The tournament is sponsored by the Piedmont Region and is organised by the Italian Federation of Golf and the Ladies European Tour, with the help of VisitPiemonte. There are 126 athletes who will compete for 200.000 euros.  A show for everybody and with free access (last year the competition took place behind closed doors due to Covid-19), as agreed with the official advisor Infront. This year there are 10 Italian athletes (last year they were 9) and four of them are amateurs. The French Lucie Malchirand will have to defend her title.

 

The Golf Club Margara is for the second time the location for the Ladies Italian Open. It was started in 1970 and completed in 1973 and is a real centre of excellence. There are two golf courses, both with 18 holes. On the first one, the “Percorso Glauco Lolli Ghetti”, you can play between tall trees such as oaks, willows and maples and wide fairways between the hills of Monferrato. The second course, “La Guazzetta”, has a more modern structure and more difficult holes. The Golf Club Margara was the location of 21 editions of the Challenge Tour between 1981 and 2008 and this year it will host the Italian Challenge Open, the competition of the men’s second continental circuit, from the 22nd to the 25th July. From Miguel Angel Jimenez to Henrik Stenson and from Costantino Rocca to Edoardo Molinari, a lot of champions have shown off their skills in Fubine Monferrato, in a club where tradition, innovation and respect of the territory coexist on the putting green. In fact, in 2019 the Golf Club Margara was given the environmental award “Impegnati nel verde” by the Italian Federation of Golf, with the support of the Istituto per il Credito Sportivo, for promoting the environmentally friendly development of golf.
