Saddlebrook Resort (Palmer course)

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 1986

The Saddlebrook Resort is home to two excellent and equally challenging championship golf courses. The original layout, known as the Saddlebrook course, was designed by Dean Refram and opened in 1976. It was modified 10 years later by Arnold Palmer, at the same time as he was designing the much admired second course at Saddlebrook, not surprisingly called the Palmer course.

The Palmer course is a championship layout that ranks with some of the best in Florida. This tree-lined and open parkland course provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area.

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.
