In Italy one can easily combine golf with trips to wineries, beach resorts and quaint villages. Golf in Italy dates back more than a century when in 1889, the then English colony of Florence founded the Florence Golf Club. The country is not as gripped as the UK is on golf, rather on football instead, but they do have 250 or so courses to offer.
In the great Golf Resort Castel Gandolfo south of Rome, you will find yourself in the midst of the vineyards, where the famous Frascati wine is produced. Moreover, it is only 8 km from Italy's beautiful capital. Or why not combine golf with fantastic excursions in beautiful Tuscany? At Residence Cosmopolitan Golf you will stay at a first class golf course by the sea and there are many great options for interesting outings in the area. For those who have already visited Rome or who are seeking an alternative to the Tuscan kitchen, we recommend a visit to the sporty Sicily.
