The 27 holes of this charming club wind their way through uncontaminated pinewoods and salt lakes in a setting of rare natural beauty just a short distance from the sea. The first nine holes, along the pinewood, were built as classic Scottish links, whilst the second nine, surrounded by water obstacles, were inspired by the great American courses. The third nine holes, which opened in 2004, boast a completely innovative design that guarantees that the course is extremely enjoyable. The Italian Professional Championships have been held here on several occasions, as have all the most important Italian amateur competitions. A Mecca for international tourism, the golf club is surrounded by tourist facilities including top-class hotels.
