Golf Club Castelconturbia: High in any ranking of Italy's top golf courses, you'll invariably find Castelconturbia. This excellent Stay&Play venue is home to 27-holes of parkland golf, excellently crafted by Robert Trent Jones Sr. Set in an undulating woodland environment, this big-dimension roaming layout is home to three equally absorbing nine-hole loops: Blue (Chestnuts), Yellow (Pines) and Red (Oaks).
Several elevated tee-boxes look down on pleasantly tree-lined fairways, which in turn steer you to Castelconturbia's challenging greens. The slopes and borrows on the putting surfaces will test your skills with the short stick, while your approach work will also need to be well-judged. Water threatens on several occasions. Many of the greens are handsomely wide, but not at all deep from front to back.
In our view the best 18-hole combination is the Blue-Yellow, which is also the most tree-lined. The Yellow-nine contains a really outstanding stretch of golf holes, up there with the best in continental Europe. The island green par-4 7th (Yellow) is just one of the gems that awaits.
There is a more open feel to parts of the Red-nine, which may prove an attraction for wayward hitters. The par-5 9th (Red) is arguably the best of the closing holes; you'll have plenty to think about on your gentle uphill journey back to the clubhouse, with water and a proliferation of bunkering all in play. All three nines finish in an open expansive environment in front of the clubhouse.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends. Closed Tuesdays.

The original Couturbier Golf Club was established in the earldom of Conturbia as the second oldest golf club in Italy (behind Roma GC in 1885). The original 9-hole course was transformed by Robert Trent Jones Sr into today's 27-hole complex. In 1991 and 1998 the club hosted the Italian Open. For details see: Top Golf Tournaments at Castelconturbia Golf Club.
The current green fee price is for a day ticket and allows play on all 27-holes during your visit.

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.
Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
