Established in 1985, La Rocca Golf Club sits on the hills that dominate Parma’s plain, close to the ducal village of Sala Baganza. This is a technical and moderately difficult course set amidst oak and acacia woods and artificial lakes. The course, 18 holes, par 71, S.S.S. 71, covers 6,076 metres. In the surrounding area, in addition to Parma’s monuments and museums that are only 13 km away, there are a number of interesting places such as Torrechiara Castle, Fontanellato, Colorno, Soragna and Canossa fortresses. The neighbouring Boschi di Carrega Regional Park boasts a huge variety of flora and fauna in 1,000 hectares of woods and glades. There’s golf, art, history, ecology and excellent Parmesan cuisine in the ancient "Casinetto", which is now the club restaurant.
