Australian Golf Tours is back with our famous Italian Golf Tour.
This will be the 4th year in a row we have organized a golf trip to Italy and it will be our 8th Italian Golf Tour overall since 2008. This is the year we started our Italian adventures, and it has become more successful every year. We have now created a brand new and exciting itinerary which will help you to discover places that you thought they existed only in your dreams.
Games of golf every day, shopping, eating, art and history they all come together in this 15 day adventure with a difference – our experience and our passion.
Join us on the 14th May 2017 for this trip of a lifetime, playing 14 rounds of golf on absolutely fantastic golf courses.
A 14 day adventure with a difference.
TUSCANY – ROME – SICILY
After arriving in Rome from the local airport we’ll have a welcoming dinner the first night to get to know each other and refresh our minds with the adventure ahead.
The Golf tour will start from Tuscany for 4 days, staying in the heart of Italy in a truly spectacular resort. Castelfalfi is a small, 800 year old medieval village which has been beautifully restructured making it an enchanting and evocative place. It offers time to relax, good cuisine and a prestigious golf course.
We will then move to Rome for 4 days, staying at the Sheraton Parco de Medici Hotel, visiting the most ancient city in the world with its unique spots like the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain and the St. Peter’s Basilica. We’ll play some beautiful golf courses, such as Roma Acquasanta, the oldest course in the country, opened in 1903 and Olgiata Golf Club, home of the Italian Open, a tournament that will attract all the top players in the world .
The finale is 6 days of golf around Sicily, one of the world’s most captivating places.
We will be staying in two different 5 star Golf Resort & Spa whose courses blend perfectly with the nature reserve, the sea and the island of Malta on the horizon: Donnafugata and Verdura.
Both resorts are stunning and very Mediterranean in a peaceful and truly beautiful landscape which will make you feel in heaven.
Tom was National Coach of Italy many years ago and his contacts in the Italian Golf World are formidable. The current crop of Italian players on the world tour are being coached by Tom’s former pupils and they still ask for advice.
Golf in Italy is normally very exclusive and always first class. There will be matches against the members at some of the golf clubs and an introduction to slices of Italian life not normally seen by the tourist. For golfers or seasoned tourists this sounds like a trip not to be missed. Non golfers are most welcome. From previous experience we have maximized the amount of golf available but it is not compulsory to play every day and there will be obvious opportunities to shop or sightsee as you wish.
