Lopagno (Tesserete): miniature golf, family challenge style

A dear friend told me about the Fondazione San Gottardo and the Casa Don Orione in Lopagno, and recommended I’d go and try the new miniature golf course which was opened recently.

We take a turn towards Lopagno and immediately find a parking space right by the Casa Don Orione. The charming period villa is situated on a splendid panoramic position overlooking the gulf of Lugano. Our friends are waiting for us in the courtyard, where we find the 12 new (and colorful) holes. There is also a cafeteria, run by a nice and thoughtful guest of the Institute, who tells us the rules of the game and the best technique to hit the ball… thank you very much!

We take our golf clubs and start playing, recording our scores on the scorecard we received when we paid for the activity.

Needless to say, I came last. Fortunately, everyone praised my wonderful idea (which was not mine, but I did not tell them) of trying out miniature golf.

Go try it out…. And have fun!
