Golf in Sicily
The beautiful Mediterranean island of Sicily offers everything a golfer could hope for from a relaxing and luxury golf holiday. The beaches are stunning, perfect golf weather, and some of the best golf courses in Italy. We have visited and can highly recommend both Verdura and Donnafugata Golf resorts. The Forte Group’s Verdura resort is near Sciacca in south-western Sicily, and has two eighteen-hole courses and a nine-hole, all designed by Kyle Phillips; their landscaping is set upon rolling hills along the shore. Then there’s Donnafugata, near Ragusa in southeastern Sicily, a stunning PGA course designed by Gary Player.
The largest island in the Mediterranean really is a truly stunning destination for a break, be it for golfing purposes or not. Most of the island is overlooked by the impressive Mount Etna which is situated in the north east corner of the island. It is not only the famous Mt. Etna which provides the island with fantastic scenery but the stunning architecture and natural wild parks go a long way in making Sicily a place that lives long in the hearts of visitors. Sicily is easy to get to with weekly direct flights with RyanAir and Thomas Cook from April onwards to Comiso Airport from London Stansted, Birmingham or Dublin.
