Sicilia's Pìcciolo Etna Golf Club is home to a well-rated and always popular golf course. On the slopes of Mount Etna, and with the evidence of lava flows never far away, this tree-lined and open parkland layout should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. The hilly terrain ensures plenty of golfing challenge, not least in the form of some tightish tree-lined fairways.
