Discovering Salento while playing Golf
This is a golf holiday designed for those who love the south of Italy and want to live a week in Salento, the southern portion of Apulia, the so-called “heel of the Italian boot”. It is an enchanted place because it is full of euphoria, sun, beauty, great culture, and vibrant traditions.
A characteristic and evocative land also thanks to the expanses of large centuries-old olive trees divided into thousands of small plots separated by the typical dry stone walls. This stone is also found in the numerous ancient coastal defensive towers and the many local architectures of every age.
A region with a typically Mediterranean spirit and lapped by two seas, a rural landscape where the reddish colour of the land meets the dark blue of the Adriatic Sea to the west and the shaded and iridescent green Ionian Sea to the east.
Acaya Golf Resort & SPA – the Hotel
Here you will find the Acaya Golf Resort & SPA, a charming facility of excellence, among the best for completeness and quality of services offered. The ideal location for a golf break that wants to combine excellent golf with the opportunity to discover the many beauties and goodness that this area offers.
The Acaya Golf Resort & SPA is located a few kilometres from Lecce, a beautiful city cloaked in baroque architecture, and adjacent to a Nature Reserve. It also boasts a beautiful private beach available to guests, 2 large swimming pools, an excellent restaurant with local and international food, a spectacular SPA of 1200 square meters, a training centre with a holistic approach and, of course, a golf course in excellent condition…
Acaya Golf Resort & SPA – The Golf Course
An 18-hole par 71 that offers a wide variety of games. A course that never gets boring thanks to the harmony between the natural characteristics and those of the game development, thus favouring those who have a good ability of interpretation.
At the same time, also a technologically advanced golf course, thanks to the research and the use of the best kinds of grass, a compelling design, excellent management and the valuable services of the club for a truly fantastic gaming experience.
San Domenico Golf
Golf course among the best in Italy, both for the quality of the exciting 18 holes par 72 and for the poignant beauty of the landscape in which it is harmoniously inserted and from which exuberant fragrances spread. A course masterfully made and perfectly maintained, as demonstrated by the beautiful shades of greens.
A link-style course designed by the architect Andy Haggar of the European Golf Design that has been the scene of many international competitions, and the choice of the word “theatre” is not casual: the holes follow each other between slopes, centuries-old olive trees, glimpses of the ancient city of Egnathia and breathtaking views of the Adriatic Sea, always in sight.
As we said at the beginning, Salento is a very rich land. This is why golf enthusiasts who want to come and play here can not miss the activities proposed in this Experience and that significantly enrich the proposal.
Apulia, like the whole South of Italy, is a paradise for food and wine tourism: many and varied are the local recipes made with zero-mile products, both of the land and the nearby seas, but also the famous extra virgin olive oil and the great and sincere wines of Salento.
We will take you to local wineries and gourmet restaurants to taste the first fruits directly in the places where they are produced, and if you want you can also participate in a cooking class where you will learn exceptional recipes directly from professional chefs who will accompany you from the choice of ingredients to cooking.
Finally, for lovers of the sea, a real sailing regatta with different possible routes and different available boats. The event can be organized with skippers and crews if necessary, and you can also create real teams to maximize the fun of the competition even off the course!
