Indeed, low-cost golf is becoming more common in Italy: saving money is not impossible, it's all about choosing the right venue and following a few small recommendations. So how can you do this? Schedule your lessons midweek, as the rate from Monday to Friday is generally lower, or keep an eye on golf club websites so as not to miss out on one-off promotions, which are a frequent occurrence during the low season.

But which places should you visit if you want to start playing golf without investing a fortune? Here we have them:

1. Golf clubs for young people in Piedmont

Club houses dedicated to young people are set up with offers designed for specific age groups, in particular from 6 to 18 years of age.

The initiative was launched by the Cavaglià Golf Club, in the province of Biella, which for all those under 18 provides an affordable annual Youth Club rate that includes an all-inclusive subscription, covering all golf services, with unlimited admission to the driving range and course, reserved for Federgolf members.

2. 60-minute lessons at the Golf Club Siracusa Sicily

Within the magnificent setting of I Monasteri Golf Resort, a former Benedictine monastery that is now a luxury resort, the Golf Club Siracusa Sicily organises golf courses aimed at beginners and non-F.I.G. members, in collaboration with the Cobra Golf Academy.

If you are in Sicily and are looking for the gentlest possible approach to the golf course, this is certainly the place for you. Indeed, there is a package of 5 lessons lasting 60 minutes each, with free admission to the driving range for the entire duration of the lessons.

3. In Calabria at the Golf Club San Michele, where you learn by the sea

The club offers new players a 2-month introduction to the world of golf.

And the added bonus? A golf course surrounded by greenery with a view of the gulf, where you can practise with 6 half-hour lessons under the guidance of an experienced instructor.

4. In the heart of Salento with the Acaya Golf Club
