Where2Golf says: 

Verdura Golf & Spa Resort (West course): Located on the south coast of Sicily near the town of Sciacca, Verdura is a relatively recent addition to Europe's fine array of Mediterranean Stay&Play venues. With two similar length championship layouts and a 9-hole short course, Verdura presents top-class golf and resort facilities.

The beachside holes are the star attraction on Verdura's beautiful West course. The Mediterranean first comes into view at the par-4 8th and 9th holes, before returning for the four-hole closing stretch, starting at the par-3 15th. It’s these final four holes, with their uninterrupted sea views, that steal the show. The par-4 16th and 18th are beautiful two-shotters, while the par-3 15th and 17th holes are dominated by sea view backdrops. The 18th brings you back to the clubhouse directly alongside the shoreline.

The East and West courses at Verdura are both open links-style layouts, designed by leading American architect Kyle Phillips. The East course is usually rated slightly ahead of the West, even though the West boasts one or two more beachside holes. If you are visiting Verdura, the best advice is to ensure you have time to play both courses.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
