Golf in Tuscany

Golf in Tuscany is one of life's joys. The mild climate, the naturally varied ground and spectacular landscape combine to create a golfing experience that is always a pleasure and often challenging. In Tuscany you can play in all seasons and the clubs are regularly open all year. The choice of venue is varied, from the wonderful country club in Punta Ala to the supreme course of Ugolino, located at the gates of Florence on the Chianti hills. Many courses are in or near tourist resorts some, but not all, near the sea.

You will notice that many courses also have swimming pools, tennis courts etc. and would make a wonderful venue for a family day out.

ELBA GOLF CLUB DELL' ACQUABONA

Address: Acquabona 57037 PORTOFERRAIO Tel. (+39)0565 940066 - Fax (+39)0565 933410

Elba is the biggest island in the Tuscan Archipelago and boasts a mild Mediterranean climate all year round. Developed as a tourist resort, Elba offers marvellous views over the sea and the rocky shore. Acquabona is one of the favourite golf courses, particularly for golfers from Northern Italy, who often spend their winter weekends at Acquabona to keep fit.

This is a 9-hole over 2572 metres among hills covered with tall trees; the course is of medium level difficulty, particularly for players who do not have long drives. An example is hole 1 (one par 4 of 388 metres) and hole 3 (one par 4 of 295 metres, which is rather difficult considering its quite short length).
