Lazio and Its Golf Greens

Golf apasionados seeking out Italy's most ideal greens – or who simply find themselves on vacation in Rome – will find that the Region of Lazio offers ample and diverse courses: we’re talking 23 different clubs of either 27, 18 or 9 holes.
Even better are the breathtaking settings: some of the clubs (circolo in Italiano) lie near ancient Roman vestiges, some feature super technical greens, and others offer the utmost in contact with nature.Circolo del Golf di Roma “Acquasanta”First off is the Circolo del Golf di Roma “Acquasanta” (18 holes). The Acquasanta club was established by a group of English expatriates in the early 1900s, who until then could only play their favorite sport in the parks of Villa Pamphili and Villa Borghese. Traversed by the little River Almone, the landscape here is quite a sight, and includes a view of the Claudius Aqueduct, the towns of Castelli Romani, the Appia Antica and the Mausoleum of Cecilia Metella.

Not far off are the links at Circolo del Golf Fioranello, located between Rome and the Castelli Romani; the club is surrounded by the Appia Antica Park, and the 18-hole course is full of technical surprises.
In the heart of Castelli Romani, rather, is Country Club Castelgandolfo; the links here are actually situated in a volcanic basin, originally a lake that the ancient Romans decided to drain. 
The course’s 18 holes spread out over 19,308 feet and run past a few threatening ponds. From the exclusive club house (a Villa built by Cardinal Flavio Chigi, Duke of Arriccia), players can admire a brilliant panorama over the greens.

Parco di Roma Golf & Country Club is 18 holes in the hills of Grottarossa, Parco di Veio to be exact. From its highest points, golfers can see the domes of Rome's churches on the horizon.
Then, Olgiata Golf Club was founded in the environs of ancient Etruscan city Veio. struck within an elegant residential district, Olgiata hosts numerous national and international tournaments.
In northern Lazio, Viterbo's countryside is home to Golf Nazionale; this National Technical Center, in Sutri, was once a Golf World Cup venue.
And in the natural valleys of Monterosi, north of Rome, is the Terre dei Consoli Golf Club. Its 18 holes are designed according to the most up-to-date standards, and with particular regard to the land and environment.

The Golf Club Parco de' Medici is minutes from central Rome, the sea and Fiumicino Airport, depending on the direction one is traveling. The Club was once the hunting reserve of Pope Leo X, while today it is composed of 27 holes expanding amidst 4,000 holm oaks, willows, and olive, pine,and cypress trees. The Park has at times been made a temporary outdoor art exhibition space for such artists as sculptor Giò Pomodoro.
Not to be outdone is the 27-hole course at the Marco Simone Golf Club near Guidonia. The Castle of Duke Federico Cesi dominates the scene here, while its owner, fashion designer Laura Biagiotti, is currently the Club's director. Flowering trees and Mediterranean pines delicately decorate the landscape.
Finally, Fiuggi, famous thermal spa locale in the Region, boasts its own Circolo Golf Fiuggi Terme. Guests can spread their time between its 18 holes and hot spring and mineral baths, within a natural park that reaches heights of 621 meters.
