A 6,316m championship course set over 70 undulating hectares, in the midst of the Maremman countryside, surrounded by colours that range from yellow to ochre, from orange to burgundy. Each hole has its own personality and – a well-noted feature of courses with a special character – the layout is instantly memorable. Having completed the 18 holes it is hard to forget the lakes, brooks, large bunkers carved into the fairways, the wide and undulating greens which demand intelligence and precision in the choice of club to use.
It is only strict adherence to norms safeguarding local nature that has allowed the creation of such a spectacular course, where in the early hours of the morning, roe deer, porcupine, hare, pheasants and a host of indigenous birdlife found in the Maremma, can often be seen.
The green of the valley of Saturnia, the breathtaking landscape and the advanced tee markers at every hole, make your game of golf an unforgettable and truly exclusive experience.
Its founding philosophy is based on the assumption that well-being derives from pleasure: the programme is designed to be challenging for seasoned players and at the same time enjoyable for those out of practice.
