Italy is blessed with many very fine golf courses, some first class golf hotels, and a terrific climate that enables you to play golf all the year round. The location of the various courses often allow you the chance to visit some of the most wonderful cities of art, taste the regional dishes and experience some beautiful landscapes.
Most Italy package vacations are found in the charming northern regions, near the famous lakes of Garda and Como, and around Milan and Venice. However, you can still find some great courses the further south you travel. Both the Napoli and Porto D'Orra Gulf Clubs outside Naples offer some of the country's best golfing, and there are plenty of great hotels in the area with discount prices. Also southern Italy and the islands of Sicily and Sardinia offer golfing opportunities.
Italian golf courses are not facilities; they are clubs, where people for whom the game is part of the social life meet for a round of golf and a good Lunch.
