While guests can enjoy a selection of traditional Christmas food during their stay, they can also experience a feast of great golf on a choice of the resort’s three outstanding Kyle Phillips-designed courses, with prices starting from €216 per room per night with no extra charge for a child aged 12 or under sharing.
Fun for players of all ages is on offer on December 26 and New Year’s Day with a Family Fun Golf Tournament on Verdura’s par-three nine-hole course, while a 36-hole New Year’s Trophy Stableford competition will be staged on the award-winning venue’s two championship courses – the East and the West – from December 30-31.
In addition, guests can also enjoy an array of other five-star experiences including traditional Sicilian cookery lessons, wine-tasting, sightseeing excusions and tennis and spa, while younger members of the family will be kept fully entertained with a wide and varied children’s programme in Verdura’s Kids Club.
Verdura’s Christmas Getaways include full daily American breakfast and a choice of either Christmas Eve dinner or Christmas lunch at the Zagara restaurant (drinks not included), with 33 per cent discounts available on breaks of three nights or more.
Savings of 25 per cent can be made on the resort’s New Year celebration packages for a minimum four-night bed-and-breakfast stay, with prices starting from €158 per person, per night and featuring welcome New Year amenities and gala ballroom dinner including drinks. All breaks are based on two people sharing a room and include complimentary access to the spa facilities and free Wi-Fi.
Host of the 2012 Sicilian Open, Verdura Resort has quickly established itself among Europe’s elite contemporary modern golf resorts, with its position enhanced after being named as ‘Italy’s Best Golf Hotel’ at the 2015 World Golf Awards last month.
Situated adjacent to the Mediterranean in 230 hectares of stunning landscape, the resort – a Rocco Forte hotel – offers offers three links-style golf courses, all built to the highest specifications.
Tee times are arranged at 12-minute intervals to ensure free-flowing play, five sets of tees make the courses playable for golfers of all abilities and one of its courses is dedicated daily to two-ball play only – a refreshing change amongst modern golf resorts.
Complementing its golf courses are extensive practice facilities including a double-ended driving range and excellent golf academy, while players can also take advantage of the latest state-of-the-art TaylorMade equipment when they hire clubs at the resort after a significant recent upgrade of its rental service.
Set on Sicily’s southern coast between Agrigento and the fishing city of Sciacca, an 80-minute drive from Trapani and Palermo airports, the resort features 203 rooms and suites – all with a sea view. Away from the fairways, guests can enjoy numerous other sports and leisure facilities including six tennis courts, a 60m two-tiered infinity pool, a 170sqm fully-equipped gym and an award-winning 4,000sqm spa complex.
