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.

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.
