A mini guide to golf on Italy’s islands

After exploring golf courses in north, the center and the south of Italy, our Italian golf tour ends on the beautiful islands of Sicily and Sardinia.

Surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea, both regions feature breathtaking sea and countryside landscapes, delicious gastronomy and lots of cultural and historic sights. Dotting the islands are some fun golf courses, where you can play all year round thanks to the mild temperatures. Let’s have a look at the main ones…

SICILY

At Verdura Golf Resort you will find three links-style golf courses designed by Kype Phillips. Two of these are 18-hole championship courses, while the other has 9 holes. They all sit on 1,8 km of panoramic coastline. Il Picciolo Golf Club offers 18 holes with a unique backdrop: Mount Etna, Europe’s most active volcano! Finally, Donnafugata offers two 18-hole golf courses in the Sicilian countryside: a Parkland signature course by Gary Player, and a Links course by Italian architect Franco Piras.

SARDINIA
