WHERE YOU WILL PLAY
Since 1934 Ugolino has meant golf in Florence. Designed at the gates of Chianti by Cecil Blandford and Peter Gannon, it hosted the Italian Open in 1983, concluded with a play-off between the legend Severiano Ballesteros, the English Ken Brown and the German Bernhard Langer, and won by the last one.
The 18 holes of the Ugolino are spread out in a hilly landscape of rare beauty, to the point that the writer Chris Santella mentioned them in the book “Fifty places to play golf before you die“!
Maybe go there calmly and no matter that title, the slopes of the fairways and the scents of the Chianti forest will take you back to a very pleasant reality.
Designed by renowned golf architect Robert Trent Jones Jr on 130 hectares of land, the 18-hole par 71 course is perfectly harmonized with the rolling hills of Siena. The Tuscan landscape provides some incredible scenery with backdrops beautiful enough to distract players from their game.
Voted “Italy’s Best Golf Course 2023” in the World Golf Awards, the course is enhanced by beautiful lakes, typical Tuscan wildlife and much more, creating a unique and exclusive golfing experience.
The Club is managed by IMG, a global leader in sports, events, media and fashion, operating in more than 30 countries. Together with 200+ International golf clubs, Royal Golf La Bagnaia is part of the IMG Prestige Network.
Celebrated as one of the most difficult courses in Italy, but not less fun, Castelfalfi is the natural choice for going to the south and continuing the journey through Tuscan golf.
Equipped with 27 holes, with the first eighteen called “Mountain course” to immediately clarify the ideas to those arriving for the first time, Castelfalfi golf is part of a location that extends over a thousand hectares of landscape dotted with vineyards and olive trees, with buildings that make up a medieval village with eight centuries of history to tell.
For the total golfer, once experienced the competitive 18 holes of the Mountain, remain to relax on the more docile “Lake course“, a nine-hole course that will allow to finish off a splendid stage of this golf trip.
IN ADDITION TO GOLF
An incredible view over the villages in the cradle of the Renaissance and a direct contact with aspects of local beauty related to art, food, culture and shopping!
This is an experience to learn more about the richness of the cultural heritage that Tuscany has to offer: a visit to the Uffizi Museum, the center of Florence, with workshops and ateliers of famous local artists and artisans, dinners in exclusive locations and selected restaurants, with typical local dishes prepared according to traditional methods and, last but not least, great wines.
