Built in the late ‘50s, the course of Biella Golf Club “Le Betulle” is set in the charming countryside. The course, an 18 holes parkland , par 73 , 6.534 mt , 7.146 yards, has been designed by the English architect, John Morrison. It is a typical example, rarely found in this country, of “English style” layout, very “environment-friendly”. Silver birches, chestnut trees and centuries old oaks frame eighteen holes with colorful backdrops that change with each season.
The prestigious magazine Il Mondo del Golf, over the Top Ten Award 29 years, has ranked our course 18 times first, 6 times second and 4 times third, as well as famous international guides consistently placing it among the top worldwide. It has been the venue for top ranking tournaments such as the European Amateur Ladies Championship in 2001 and the European Men’s Amateur Championship in 2006, won by Rory McIlroy, and for the last 13 years has hosted the International Under 16 Championship.
As and when you climb along the main road to Magnano, the feeling is that nature takes over. It is the nature of Serra, moraine of an ancient glacier, an imposing plateau interposing between the plain and the peaks of the Alps. At the top, the entrance gate of the Club opens with discretion, suddenly protected by the dense wood of birches and chestnut trees. Discretion indeed. The extraordinary charm of this place and of the course are never flauted; Biella “Le Betulle” is a strongly English-style country club. No houses, swimming pools or tennis courts, here you come to play, with the room overlooking the field and with the flavors of the rich Piedmontese cuisine to close a magnificent day of golf.
