Lae Golf Club: Laid out on a former colonial plantation and WW2 American army camp, the Lae golf course includes several attractive holes and features. This tree-lined parkland layout is dotted with native and tropical vegetation and will provide an enjoyable test for most facets of your game.

The predominantly straightaway holes play through relatively tight tree-lined fairways. Although many fairways are bunkerless, it's a different matter around the relatively small well-defended greens. Worth visiting if you are in the area.

Who's Who

Céline Boutier: with many successes as both an amateur and professional golfer, Boutier added a major championship title to her impressive résumé at this year’s Evian Championship.

Alex Cejka: buffeted by rain and high winds, especially on the high-scoring final day, Čejka prevailed over Pádraig Harrington in a playoff at Royal Porthcawl, to scoop the Senior Open Championship title.

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.
