Arnold Palmer, Jim Fazio, Robert von Hagge and and Robert Trent Jones Senior have created golf masterpieces around Italy's glorious cities like Florence, Milan, Turin, Venice and Rome.
Italy is a very different destination from other popular Southern European golfing countries. A game of golf is a social occasion for the Italians to be enjoyed and savoured. The courses are rarely crowded and at the end of the round, you can head to the clubhouse for a glass of good wine and a chat with local golfers, eager to welcome British guests.
It's also the home of the Ryder Cup in 2022 when the 44th Europe versus US competition will be held at Marco Simone Golf and Country Club in Guidonia Montecelio near Rome.
