Situated among the sun-drenched olive groves and hot thermal springs of the southern Tuscan countryside is the beautiful enclave of Maremma. Home to the Saturnia Tuscany Hotel which is built in the style of a sumptuous country villa affording luxury and comfort in equal measure, this idyllic corner of Tuscany provides the perfect base to experience great golf and wonderful food.
This is one of Italy’s most celebrated gastronomic regions benefiting from temperate conditions throughout spring and autumn and the ideal setting for a Mediterranean getaway.
The highly-respected Saturnia Golf Club is just a 10-minute transfer from the four-star Saturnia Tuscany spa hotel which rests in the rolling Grosetta Hills. Here golf is enjoyed on gentle undulating fairways which weave through the unspoilt and breathtaking Tuscan landscape.
Eighteen holes of spectacular golf are complemented by a well-equipped clubhouse, golf academy and restaurant, which serves up a range of local specialities. The course is rich in bunkers, making a round challenging for experienced golfers but equally forgiving for those developing their game.
Designed by Golfplan, a renowned architectural firm responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious golf courses, the Saturnia Golf Club is a course that keeps you coming back for more, showcasing Italian golf at its best.
