A land of history, art, wine... and golf!
Famous for its wealth of artistic masterpieces, extraordinary landscapes, celebrated wines and fascinating culture, Tuscany is an unforgettable region, which offers the best of everything Italian! It extends from the Apennines to the Tyrrhenian Sea, in central Italy, covering over 3000 years of history.
If Florence is the main tourist destination, yet it is merely an introduction to the diversity and charm of the region. Fine art and architectural wonders, ancient spa-towns, medieval villages, remote country churches and impressive abbeys and castles are scattered all over the area, consisting mainly of hilly zones. The most famous are the hills of Chianti, of course! Nature here has many different facets indeed, starting from the coast that alternates long and sandy beaches - as in Versilia - with wild rocky and steep cliffs.
Florence features an impressive multitude of palaces, churches and museums which house rare treasures of the finest art in the world, from Michelangelo's "David" to Botticelli's "La Primavera". Unsurprisingly, the entire centre is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Once in Tuscany, do not miss world-renown cities such as Pisa with its leaning tower, Siena and the fan-shaped Piazza del Campo and San Gimignano, another perfect hilltop town with its charming turreted skyline.
A Tuscan tour through golf is the very best way to discover the region, which has some of Italy's finest golf courses. No less than 30 to choose from!
Ugolino Golf Club, founded in 1933, is the oldest in Tuscany. The 18-hole course is quite challenging with its many water hazards, undulating fairways and tricky small greens.
Close to S. Gimignano, embedded in the most fascinating hills, Castelfalfi Golf Club boasts 27 holes, some truly spectacular views over the hills of High Tuscany and many challenging water hazards.
Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., Royal Golf La Bagnaia is an 18-hole course within the gently rolling hills of Siena. A typical example of inland links, it presents some demanding lakes and a breathtaking view over the medieval town.
