Close-to-nature golfing at the Brandis estate in Lana – The 9-hole Lana golf course is nestled between apple orchards and vineyards, with a view of the historic Brandis Castle. Designed by landscape architect Michael Pinner, it offers gentle elevation changes, ideal for beginners, while experienced golfers demand precise shots on the almost 2.8 kilometres of the Lana Brandis golf club.
Thanks to the mild climate, golfing in Lana is possible almost all year round. The golf course opens as early as February and closes only in late autumn. The Passeier Golf Club, Merano and the Eppan Golf Club are also nearby.”
