Most people associate Rome and Italy to many things, but certainly not golf. Perhaps over the recent years thanks to the success of Francesco Molinari on worldwide golf events, Italy may have gained some attention from golf enthusiasts.
Rome is known for its history, art, culture and tourism. On the contrary, golf clubs in Rome are not overcrowded, and you can enjoy a great day of golf on courses designed by renowned architects like Trent Jones Senior.
One of Rome’s Golf courses, the Marco Simone Golf Club will be hosting the Ryder Cup 2022, and the Italian Open 2019 will be held in Rome’s Olgiata Golf Club in September. So the Italian capital seems to be slowly moving towards being an important golf destination.
Your golf holiday in Rome can involve a number of options when not golfing. Food and Wine is always worth a try, you can enjoy a wine tasting experience in one of the Castelli Romani’s local wineries. Frascati, Grotta Ferrata, Castelgandolfo are some of the better known names from the region. You can enjoy shopping in Rome’s city center or the fashion outlets just outside the capital. Obviously you might want to dedicate some time to visiting all the history the capital has to offer, but again if you want to stay away from the crowds and mass tourism, IGolfItaly will show you the best steps to take for the right experience. And if you choose to come to Rome in the summer perhaps you might consider boat tours to the Pontine Islands.
The choices are infinite, and if you want to match your favorite sport with an unforgettable experience in the Italian Capital you should contact us to plan your trip!
