Italy Golf Vacations

Fall in love with Italy’s ‘bellissimo’ golf courses

La Dolce Vita reigns supreme, and that philosophy of the good life carries over to the experiential delight of Italy golf.

There are serious championship courses throughout the country, including the neighboring islands of Sardinia and Sicily. Alongside the golf, experience the culture of a leisurely two-hour lunch of exquisite homemade pasta, enjoyed alongside exquisite local wines – there are days the back nine can wait.

For the serious golfer the Lake District and the Piedmont region around Milan and Turin have the most quality golf courses for a week or longer Italy golf tour. The Molinari Brothers, Francesco and Eduardo, grew up at the Circolo Park Torino (Turin) Golf Club. Their success helped Italy capture hosting the 2023 Ryder Cup Matches in Rome at Marco Simone Golf Club.

No matter where you chose to visit in Italy you will find fascinating history, captivating art, inspiring architecture and exceptional regional cuisine of the freshest local ingredients. You will also find championship golf.

“Italy is a dream that keeps returning for the rest of your life.”

What makes golf in Italy special?

A historical Florence golf club was established in 1889, four years before the first course opened in America, and that is when golf first gained popularity in Italy. It is one of more than 250 exhilarating golf courses in Italy and it is now known as Circolo Golf Ugolino.

Even devoted golfers might not immediately connect their sport with one of the world’s most well-known holiday destinations. While Italy is known for its wonderful food, magnificent wine, historic ruins, and stunning fashion, when the prestigious Ryder Cup begins in Rome in 2023, this will undoubtedly put the nation on the map in the golfing world.

The list of reasons you should visit Italy is endless. From the delicious food, renaissance artists, and cities, to luxury fashion and famous soccer teams. A day out in Rome to see the awe-inspiring Trevi fountain, Colosseum, and Vatican City is rightly top on the list for tourists visiting the historical city.
