Sorrento Golf Club: Although a little on the short side, Sorrento is a delightful gem of a course, more parkland than links, played over wonderfully undulating terrain. The layout zig-zags its way out to the par-4 8th hole, then turns and zig-zags its way back again to the clubhouse.

Throughout, the conditioning is immaculate. Some holes are quite garden-like in character, enhanced by a wonderful variety of flora, with a few natural lakes dotted around. Water however is rarely in play.

The couch-grass fairways are quite soft and springy, leading you to excellent and not too heavily bunkered greens. Although sea views are missing, the views from the course are embellished by the pleasant hillside properties of some of Sorrento's wealthier residents.

The peaceful environment and friendly reception you'll get at Sorrento, marks this out as a rather special course among Melbourne's seemingly endless array of golfing treasures.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with five wins out of her last five starts on the LPGA Tour. Winning the Chevron Championship also brought the second major championship win of her career.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda's five wins in five starts, when he placed second at the Houston Open. Either side of that, he won The Arnold Palmer, The Players, and then The Masters and The Heritage.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
