The road to Castiglion del Bosco from Buonconvento (although tricky to find in the middle of the village of Buonconvento; follow direction Bibbiano), provides a much shorter and easier drive to the golf course than the dirt-track road from Montalcino (also a bit tricky to find!).
Castiglion del Bosco Golf Club is stunningly located in the rolling hills of the Val d’Orcia, close to the historic wine centre of Montalcino. The "Castle in the Woods" (or CdB for short) is an exclusive high-end Stay&Play venue, offering a wonderfully crafted Tom Weiskopf golf course, luxury onsite accommodation and all the atmosphere you can drink-in on a magnificent 4,500-acre wine estate.
With its Tuscan charm and appeal, the predominantly open parkland layout follows the contours of the gently rolling hills, blending in perfectly with the landscape. The manicured fairways are complemented by plenty of stylish bunkering and tall fescue grasses that lie beyond the generous first-cut of rough. Water hazards and natural water courses also play their part.
The course is challenging, yet welcoming and enjoyable to play, and is surrounded by wonderfully natural open countryside. Wherever you are on the course, blissful scenery is ever-present. The 19th hole, the Brunello Hole, provides the perfect place to relax and unwind after a hard-fought game.
The rustic golf clubhouse occupies a former farm building, with adjacent practice facilities, bar, restaurant and Pro Shop. Though private, the golf course is open on a limited basis to guests of the Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco, which includes villas, a 23-suite hotel, and a winery.
Private club - guests may only play if hosted by a member or if staying at Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco. Membership is by invitation only.
Golf carts available for hire.
