Making plans for a golf holiday can be a frustrating task at times, but researching a golf break to Italy has never been easier thanks to the launch of a new website showcasing one of Europe’s fastest growing golf destinations.
Launched by Italy Golf & More – the first pan-Italian international promotional golf project – the new portal features extensive details on the country’s golf courses and regions, and is a one-stop shop to discovering the many delights of golf ‘La Dolce Vita’.
As well as providing easy access and comprehensive information about Italy’s golfing venues, the site – which is available in both English and Italian – offers the chance to learn more about the many historic, cultural and gastronomic attractions of each featured region.
In addition, online visitors can view and book the latest golf packages from around the country, and sign up to receive regular emailed updates on the latest developments in Italian golf.
Bruno Bertero, project co-ordinator for Italy Golf & More, said: “With the opportunity to play golf all year round with an incredibly diverse selection of regions from north to south, Italy truly has something for everyone and golfers can learn all about our fantastic country with the new website.
“Italy has made great progress as a golf tourism destination in the last 12 months and making the site as easy, straightforward and accessible to use as possible will help us to maintain the momentum in 2017 and beyond.”
Boasting no fewer than 141 18-hole courses, Italy is the perfect place to combine a sunshine golfing break with the chance to experience many of its other historic, cultural and gastronomic delights.
Italy Golf & More is a collaboration between 12 private sector partner regions, the Italian Golf Federation and the Ministry of Tourism (MIBACT), who have come together to embark on a seven-figure investment to increase awareness, and future golf tourism traffic, from key European markets to Italy.
The partner regions consist of Friuli Venezia Giulia – the leading partner region of the project – Lombardy, Piedmont, Lazio, Veneto, Liguria, Emilia-Romagna, Puglia, Sicily, Sardinia, Marche and Umbria – who together boast 119 of Italy’s golf courses – with six further regions falling under the investment of the Italian Golf Federation.
With 20 airports in the UK operating regular flights to all over Italy, the country has never been so accessible, while its warm climate and mixture of mouth-watering cuisine, fine wines, spas, history, culture and beaches make it the perfect location for a golf break.
