Golf Club Parco de' Medici: On a former Pope's hunting estate, tucked away in the south-west corner of Rome, the Sheraton Parco de' Medici boasts 27-holes of elegant, lightly tree-lined parkland golf. The Blue-White nines comprise the championship course, with the considerably shorter Red-nine serving as a good warm-up facility or somewhere to fine-tune any parts of your game that are currently misfiring. Laid out on relatively flat terrain, the course has many excellent and challenging holes, with plenty of stylish bunkering around the greens, and a pleasant array of pines, cypresses and weeping willows guiding you along the good-width, mounded fairways. Although Rome's principal river, the Tiber, passes within 200 metres of the course (hidden behind a large bank alongside the par-4 13th hole), the only water you'll be seeing are several small lakes and ponds, principally found around the immaculate greens and approaches to them. The par-3 15th is perhaps the best of the par-3s, played to a heavily bunkered and then water-surrounded green. Also surrounded by water on three sides of their greens is a testing trio of short par-4s ( at 5, 6 and 16), as well as the longer par-4 9th and par-5 18th. Although there is not much to see beyond the course, and inevitably some traffic noise creeps in from nearby motorways, Parco de' Medici has been transformed into an enjoyable, resort-style parkland layout. The ancient building foundations and water well alongside the closing hole will have you musing what role they might have played in Pope Leo X's former hunting grounds.

Did you know?

The golf club takes its name from the area's association with Pope Leo X, born Giovanni de' Medici (1475-1521). He was Pope from 1513 to his death, and was the last non-priest to be elected Pope. Giovanni was the second son of Lorenzo de' Medici (Lorenzo The Magnificent), the most famous ruler of the Florentine Republic. His cousin, Giulio di Giuliano de' Medici, succeeded him as Pope Clement VII (1523–34). Leo X spent part of his life in a private hunting lodge originally built by Pope Innocent VIII. He enlarged the building into a splendid villa which was called Castle Magliana, living there with his court of literates, musicians and artists, and hunting deer and wild boar in the Castle's grounds. Today the hunting is predominantly for birdies and eagles ! >> Parco de' Medici has hosted many prestigious tournaments, not least the Ladies Italian Open (Ladies European Tour) on several occasions (see our Tournaments section > by Venue > Parco de' Medici).
