Historic Competitions


The first edition of the President’s Cup dates back to 1956, just a year after the founding of what was then called the Golf Club Cervinia.
During the years of Vittorio Gallia the tournament took place on two days, 14 and 15 August. An 18-hole medal tournament took place on the first day and an 18 holes Stableford on the second. Every year there were two winners, one for each event, and their names were engraved on the large silver plate donated by the President. Numerous international-level players, both male and female, have competed for the Cup over the years, such as the unforgettable Italian Champion Isa Goldschmid, who won it in 1960. In 1971, it was decided to have the tournament take place on one day only, with the medal formula - which is what still happens today. Some of the prize-winning players have later gone on to become professionals, including Stefano Betti, today President of the Italian PGA, Alessandro Pittaluga and Diego Fiammingo.

The first edition of the Cervino Golden Trophy goes back to 1970. It was played, as it is nowadays too, over two days, 16 and 17 August. The tournament immediately gained a certain reputation given the value of the first prize, which was initially a reproduction of the Matterhorn cast in solid gold. It was also sponsored by the Italian Golf Federation for several years.

The Cervino Pro-Am took place for the first time in 1986. It’s a two-day tournament in which one professional and three amateurs take part and is held in July. It’s always a great success with Italian and foreign professionals, who each year pull out all the stops to compete for the prize on offer. This prestigious tournament has seen the participation of the most important players on the Italian golfing scene.



The Combined Ski & Golf competition takes place in July; this event is unique of its kind, and was founded in 1991 by the current Honorary President Mario Cravetto and sponsored by the Funivie del Cervino. It’s a team competition in which competitors take part on the first day in a giant slalom race on the snows of Plateau Rosà, at a height of 3500 metres, and on the second day they compete in a golf match. The unusual nature of this event has attracted a huge number of participants over the years, and they have been able to enjoy the splendid, unspoilt natural surroundings of the glacier, perennially snow-covered, and then compete on the nine holes of the highest golf course in Europe. Skiing and Golf: a combination that only Cervinia, 2000 metres up in the mountains, can offer.


Golf is not just a summer sport in Cervinia. In January 1995, the first match in Europe between professionals, played on a completely snow-covered course, took place here. The event was devised and organised by Mario Cravetto with the collaboration of some prestigious sponsors in the sector; some of the most important Italian players took part and competed in an exciting skin-game. The event was repeated in 1996, and in 1997 it attracted a large audience of fans and others, who followed with interest the challenge between pros and the initiatives linked to it.
