Since ancient times people were attracted by locations where the spirit of glorious past was still alive.
The nature and history have both left a vivid stamp in this land surrounded by sun-drenched hills of Aukštaitija and Dzūkija’s misty forests.
Thousands of years ago, moving glaciers formed the land of this territory in such manner that now it is an ideal place for a golf course. Now there lies the nationally protected geomorphologic reserve of Pipiriškės.
In the 3rd century, between the lakes of Zarpuvis and Pasamanė, a village near the Juodakalnis mound was founded. What is most significant is that all four historical capitals of Lithuania – Kernavė, Trakai, Kaunas and Vilnius – were founded in almost equal distances from this spectacular location.
While centuries ago all the noblemen of Kernavė and Senieji Trakai used to hunt in these fields and lands, now golf players from Lithuania and all over the world have the chance to enjoy playing golf in the heart of this wonder of nature.
