GOLF in Tuscany
|Golf finds an elect land in Tuscany. The temperate climate, naturally rolling terrain and broad courses surrounded by rows of trees create a vista in which the fairways are always an element of continuity.Golf can be played in Tuscany in any season and clubs usually operate 12 months a year.Many clubs are situated in localities of great tourist vocation, at the sea, in the hills or even in the mountains. You can play all day long or take a moments relaxation after the museums, the spas or a swim in the sea.Castelfalfi Golf & Country Club proposes a vast offer to entertain its guests which certainly does not stop at golfing alone. In addition to the course (18-holes, 6449 metres, par 73, SSS 73), there are three swimming-pools, four tennis courts and it is possible to practice horseback riding, hunting and sports-fishing in the lakes of the vast estate.Golf Club Le Pavoniere is only 3 kilometres from Prato, the old industrial and manufacturing centre that rises in the immediate vicinity of Florence and that, especially in recent years, has won an important role in Tuscanys economic panorama. Marked by nurseries and intensive cultivations, the area abounds in water resources which, along the golf course route, have been used to create numerous obstacles. Earth embanking has also given a light undulation to the playing ground, marked by holm-oak woods, cluster pines and the ever-present Tuscan cypress tree.Set in the splendid hills of Mugello is the Poggio de Medici Golf & Country Club, a spectacular and funny course. Divided into three blocks of 9 holes, each par 36, it offers a certainly unusual variety of playing situations.The golf course was designed for players who are just beginning to play golf, for good players looking for a challenge and for champions taking part in the meets it will host.The lakes, bunkers, brooks and sidelines of trees were created not only to constitute technical obstacles, but also to form a visual horizon that is unique for harmony and suggestion.The Garfagnana Golf Club is inserted into a fascinating setting that sweeps over the Garfagnana and the highest peaks of the Apuane Alps. The rolling hilly countryside has made it possible to build the course without altering the natural environment, giving rise to four brief but enjoyable holes with difficulties (small lakes and bunkers) that offer the opportunity for different approach modalities.Situated in the city of Colle Val dElsa, a few kilometres from Siena, San Gimignano, Florence and Volterra, the Circolo di Golf lAbbadia is the ideal spot for day-golfers or with little time available, to have a go at the course.The 5-hole course is ideal for persons just starting to golf and for those looking to improve and perfect their level.The Circolo has a driving range, pitching green and putting green in addition to a comfortable club house.Only 1 km from the centre of Florence, the Golf Club Parco di Firenze practice course was conceived for people who want to learn the game of golf or who are no longer neophytes and instead want to train and practice at any time of day.The course has 50 illuminated teeing-grounds, while 9 new executive holes and club house restructuring are planned. The largest island of the Tuscan archipelago, Elba boasts a mild Mediterranean climate that stays mild all year round. Quite developed from the viewpoint of tourism, the island offers beautiful panoramas, transparent water that penetrates into a rocky, jagged coast, and easy to reach from the mainland: less than an hour by ferryboat from Piombino to Portoferraio.With a premise like this, it is obvious that Acquabona is in the heart of every golfer, especially those from northern Italy who often come here on weekends in winter to keep in practice.Circolo Golf Maremmello is located in heart of Maremma, on the hills that look out over the sea which extends from Porto Santo Stefano to Talamone and is easy to reach on the S.S. Aurelia. Travelling the course, immersed in silence and caressed by a pleasant sea breeze, it is possible to admire the beautiful spectacle offered by a still uncontaminated nature, along with several local animal species.In every season, Maremmello offers hospitality to all players, Italian and foreign, as long as they belong to a club.Tirrenia is located halfway between Pisa and Livorno. The presence of the nearby international airport gives the locality direct connections with the major Italian cities and several European capitals.Golf Club Tirrenia celebrated it 25th anniversary in 1993. A quarter of a century of uninterrupted sports and social activity which qualifies it as one of the most solid and well-rooted golf realities in Italy.Thanks to a mild climate, Tirrenia stays open all year round. The course with its nine holes harmoniously inserted into a pinewood, has maintained its environmental prerogatives intact as typical Mediterranean underbrush and offers players one of the most harmonious and stimulating playing routes they are like to find internationally. The game unfolds through green nature and silence, the scent of pine trees and the caress of sea winds. The Atmosphere is very casual and favours relations between members, and especially guests who receive a warm welcome here.
