With rolling hills, rows of poplar trees, rugged landscapes and a beautiful year-round climate, there’s no better place to learn golf than at Argentario Golf Resort & Spa.
New for 2015, the resort is now offering you the chance to improve your game with the help of former European Tour pro Emanuele Canonica.
Named the ‘Swing Like Canonica’ package, it includes 30 hours of golf clinics with Canonica and his staff, as well as ten hours of physical activity; daily green fees and range balls; a five-night stay in a design room; spa access; Wi-Fi and full board (drinks excluded). The package costs €1,350 per player and you can book to stay between July 5 and July 10, or July 12 and July 17.
Located in the Maremma, a protected Mediterranean oasis, Argentario Golf Resort & Spa is a five-star destination that overlooks the Orbetello Lagoon.
It comprises 73 design rooms and an exclusive cottage, each featuring a private terrace with views of either the breathtaking landscape or the beautiful 18-hole championship golf course.
Originally designed by Italian golfer Baldovino Dassu, the course has since been re-worked, resulting in a layout that has been described as ‘varied, spectacular and technically challenging’.
Away from the golf course, you can relax and unwind in the stylish Espace Wellness Centre and MediSpa before retiring to the Dama Dama Restaurant to sample the very best in locally-sourced Italian cuisine.
Exploring the wider Tuscan area is easy to do, with most of the main towns and cities all within easy reach of the resort. Day trips to Florence, Pisa and Siena come highly recommended.
