10 courses ranked among the ‘Top 100 courses in Europe 2010’ are based in Italy. You have the opportunity to play everywhere in this beautiful country, with a climate to rival Spain, a coastline as spectacular as Portugal's, a tumultuous history to match that of the British Isles, not to mention a deserved reputation for pre-eminence in the fields of food and wine.
Quiet and friendly, the courses themselves are improving in quality all the time, green fees are extremely reasonable and many of the clubs have a welcoming atmosphere that simply cannot be replicated at the golf-by-numbers offerings found in other Mediterranean countries.
Mature golfers who want to take time and enjoy a leisurely game will love it. So will couple, who want to play in one of the world's most romantic destinations.
What makes our trips truly unique? To start, it isn’t just one thing. Great golf variety, insider access, unparalleled service and inspired trip planning are just some of the difference that help create the golf magic.
Golf on (and on and on…)
From the Robert Trent Jones course in the Dolomites, to the spectacular newly born Kyle Phillips' Verdura in Sicily. All the 200 private championship golf courses are magnificent manicured and offer the most scenic golf in all Italy.
60% of the courses are located in wine production regions and are still attended mostly by local members. Rest assured, they’re all worth the effort!
Lovely Italy has it all
The Venetian noble Doges were here, Leonardo da Vinci, Cristoforo Colombo and now Costantino Rocca, Molinari brothers and us. We would not bring golfers to Italy without coming to Venice or Florence, the cities with the most loveliest and the most romantic Renaissance architecture in all of Italy. There, we are treated like Doges when we will be playing the 18-holes designed by Arnold Palmer in the private park of 17th century Villa Grimani Morosini. Culture, architecture, history – Italy has it all.
Pop in a Grand Canal palazzo to the private pasta factory, see the ancient glass mosaic production, visit the oldest Italian distillery and check out the 17th century Grappa alembic, or just get to know Antonia, one-on-one. (Antonia is the creator of Il Ballo del Doge, the most exclusive and opulent Carnival event in Venice).
