Golf Guide to Italy

Warmer climates found in Portugal and Spain make them terrific golfing destinations, but there are a select few countries in Europe that can rival those warmer environments. Italy is one such eample. The nation is commonly referred to as Europe’s best kept golfing secret, and the collection of outstanding golf courses can vouch for that argument. No matter where you travel in Italy, there are so many brilliant courses that a trip to any region can deliver a first-class golfing experience.

With brilliant facilities and an invitingly warm climate, golfing in Italy continues to become a popular experience for ardent golfers across the world. Whilst the nation is known for its exquisite wine and food – which golfers will take great pleasure in sampling – golf has continued to grow in popularity. There are over 250 golf courses available for play in Italy. This guide will explore the appeal of Italian golf and delve deep into which resorts deserve your green fees and recommend which parts of Italy are tailored towards general golf trips.

Climate The Climate

Italy is home to a welcoming climate and one that is inviting to golfers. Whilst it may fail to reach the peak of the Mediterranean, there isn’t too much difference between Spain, Portugal and Italy in terms of temperature, meaning Italy is a year-round option for British golfers who are looking to escape the gloominess of winter.

For golfers who are looking to take advantage of the warmest areas and seasons, then we suggest you travel to the south of Italy, to Puglia and the islands of Sicily and Sardinia which typically experience a hotter summer season. Naturally, the summer will produce the most sunshine, but Italy remains a solid option for those who are looking to travel during spring and autumn.

July and August are usually the warmer months, with the average day temperature at 33°C. Italy is regarded as a sunny country and there are approximately 2,500 hours of sunshine recorded in the country on an annual basis.

Time  Local Time

Italy adheres to CEST time; one hour ahead of Britain.

  Local Currency

Italy uses the Euro and there are plenty of ATMs and bureaus de change.

Flight Information

Due to Italy being a popular holiday destination, there are many airlines that you can fly with and if you book your trip in advance, you’ll save money in addition to being able to book the best golf experiences available. You can also fly from Italy from several places throughout Britain, including London, Bristol, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Manchester.
