Acaya Golf Club

4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   Acaya Golf Club Est. 1996

Where2Golf says: 

Acaya Golf Club is home to a well-rated and pleasantly testing golf course. Located amongst the olive orchards of Salento in Italy's "heel", this open parkland layout should not disappoint. Revamped by Michael Hurdzan in 2007, the course lays down a relative open challenge, with water putting in a few appearances on the front-nine loop, and many more on the testing back-nine.

On this very natural and well-spaced out layout, not bothered by roads or real estate, there are many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Good-width fairways, gently undulating terrain and occasional waterfalls are all in the mix. Plenty of golfing challenge around the bunker-defended greens contributes to this well-crafted design.
