Golf Club Monticello (Red/Rosso course)

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1974

Golf Club Monticello (Rosso course): Monticello, with a distinguished history of staging the Italian Open, is home to the Rosso (Red) and Blu courses - both are accommodated in a very expansive and relatively flat area of parkland, which is home to countless tree varieties and some lovely views of the tops of surrounding mountains. The Rosso course is generally regarded as the stronger course - it is longer, makes good use of the occasional water hazards and culminates in a very good back-nine holes. The par-5 11th is both tighter and tougher than any of the earlier holes, and signals a sterner test on the closing stretch. Arriving at the 18th green (a double green shared with the par-5 9th) your putting skills will undoubtedly be critically assessed by those sipping a cool beverage on the excellent clubhouse terrace - before you join them and assess those following in your wake.

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.

Golf Son Gual

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.
