Golf holidays

Many people thinks that golf is an expensive sport in Italy: lately things have been started to change, holiday-related courses are increasingly common and Italy is the ideal place to practice this sport in absolute tranquility. Many new structures were added to the pre-existing offer, and Italy now counts up to 223 golf courses officially approved around the country. Among the most active regions are Lombardia, Piedmont (counting many fields in the Marco Pion | Director

national top ten) and Tuscany. If you love Italy and its nature you will be enchanted by golf, a sport that combines good exercise with the pleasure of being in direct contact with nature.

Liguria / Sanremo

Circolo Golf degli Ulivi The Circolo degli Ulivi Golf Course in Sanremo extends over undulating terrain of different levels along terraces cut out from the side of the mountain. Sanremo has always been reputed for its mild climate, meaning that golf can be played all year round. The idea of building this golf course was launched by the municipality of Sanremo in 1932, with the object to promote tourism and offer foreign golfers an additional reason to spend the winter holiday in the mild, sunny climate of the Riviera. Though not particularly long the course is somewhat tricky, with very narrow, complex holes were precision rather than power is important. The Sanremo Golf Club has always hosted important events including the Italian Opens in the Thirties and Fourties, the Masters in the Eighties, the European Senior Tour in 2004 and the Italian PGA Championship in 2005, 2006 and 2007. The extensive colonial style Clubhouse is extremely comfortable and offers full facilities; from the terraces one is presented with a superb panoramic view of the course and the bay below.
