The golf club stands on the site where, in the 16th century, Pope Leo X - in the world Giovanni De' Medici, had his private hunting ground. The course, designed by Davide Mezzacane and Peter Fazio, is a very technical course, rich in small mounts, bunkers, water barriers composed of ditches and six lakes, the habitat of seagulls and herons. Along the fairway of the 18th hole, in a circumscribed area we can see the remains of a Roman house of the first century A.D. At disposal of club members and guests there are large comfortable lounges, the lemon conservatory, a games room a TV room, swimming pool, two lawn tennis courts and an equipment room.

The Golf Club Parco De' Medici also extends its hospitality to those who are simply admirers of this sport and who feel that the peaceful atmosphere of a country club, just a few minutes from the town, may be used for business lunches or for a few hours' relaxation. Children under 12 are not allowed in the club house or on the course.

Comment read on the Peugeot Golf Guide
The 18-hole course has been supplemented by a 9-holer (par 34) and was partly laid out over a former hunting estate belonging to Pope Leon X in the 15th century. For easy access, the course is within the immediate vicinity of downtown Rome and the airport. The terrain is very flat but the monotony is broken by contouring and the very many stretches of water that are home to a good many birds and a resting place for even more balls if you don't hit it straight. Rather long from the back-tees and very exposed to the wind, the layout is much easier when you are humble enough to move further forward, but somehow it doesn't leave a lasting impression. Designed by David Mezzacane and Peter Fazio, Parco de' Medici clearly portrays the highly strategic modern style of course architecture with large, well-guarded greens and a preference for target golf. A huge clubhouse, grand hotel, a pool and two grass tennis courts complete the very high standard facilities here.




This is the cradle of occidental civilization and Christian culture, of lakes and legends, of thermal spas and history, of ancient roads and verdant hills. Lazio is a region of central Italy bordered by the Tyrrhenian Sea,traverse by the waters of the Tiber River and mainly characterized by hills and mountains, while it slopes down near the coast. 
This region has different yet complementary features, unblemished sceneries and spectacular horizons among the towns. Visitors can enjoy incredibly beautiful views, like Villa Borghese in Rome, the Italian capital. 
Villa Borghese is the most famous city park for walking or cycling. It represents an unparalleled experience between art, containing the Borghese Gallery with its masterpieces, and the nature surrounding it, including lakes and ancient trees. Lazio is also full of spas, whose history is bound to the several thermal water springs that had great success in the Republican Age and continued to be used in the Imperial Age. The Romans built sumptuous thermal baths and we can still admire their vestiges around the territory; first of all, the Terme di Caracalla (now in a state of magnificent ruins) in the heart of Rome. 
Tivoli is another spa, but its fame is mainly due to the artistic beauties it contains, like Villa D’Este, with its splendid fountains, gardens and magnificent palace of the Renaissance, and Villa Adriana, the ancient residence of emperor Hadrian. The two villas are on the UNESCO World Heritage List. 
For those who prefer the sea, this region offers some pearls such as GaetaSabaudiaSan Felice CirceoSperlonga and the Islands of Ponza and Ventotene, while those who love lakes will enjoy Bracciano, an enchanting stretch of water encircled by the intense green of the surrounding nature and overlooked by a magnificent 16th-Century castle. Walking along the Medieval streets of the villages by the shores of the lake, visitors can feel that these places are not only bound to the Roman Empire, but were also the theatre of various historical periods. Lake Bolsena, in the area of Viterbo, gives us an example of it, as it is the biggest volcanic lake in Europe and encloses two islands, Bisentina and Martana. This lake combines the charm of lush nature and splendid view,s with the history and traces left by the Etruscans, Romans and successive populations. 
Finally, mountain lovers will not be left disappointed by Lazio, thanks to the ski resorts of TerminilloLivata and Campo Staffi. This land evokes memories of unrivalled places and intense emotions, but also a clear perception of the relentless march of time, that justifies the attempts of our ancestors to challenge time and leave us their remembrance. 

The provinces of the region are: Rome (regional capital), FrosinoneLatinaRieti and Viterbo

 

 

ROME

The Province of Rome is a matching frame for the many treasures of the Capital, and the surrounding area has, more or less directly, experienced the influence of the history of the Eternal City.
The Region of Lazio offers everything from sea and nature to good food and lovely villages rich in history and art. And around Rome, the hills, lakes, rivers and vineyards make for a kaleidoscope of diversity and attractions for nature lovers.
Facing the Tyrrhenian Sea, The Province enjoys a Mediterranean climate on the coast and a continental one further inland. The coast stretches from the area including Fiumicino and the towns overlooking Lake Bracciano (the largest in the province) to the border with the Province of Latina.

In the northwest are the Tolfa and Sabatini Mountains, along with the nature reserves of Macchiagrande, Macchiatonda, Torre Flavia and Canale Monterano. In the Tiber Valley lie the Park of Valle del Treja, and the nature reserves of Nazzano-Tevere-Farfa and of Mount Soratte.

The Tiburtino-Sublacense area, crossed by the River Aniene, includes the regional parks of the Lucretili and Simbruini Mountains. The territory that comprises the Prenestina area and the Lepini Mountains is nestled between the Aniene Valley and the Albani Hills. The volcanic Lakes of Nemi and Albano characterize the Castelli Romani area - a holiday resort since ancient times - thanks to the mild climate and the gentle landscape.

Even before becoming the Capital of the Italian Republic, Rome had always played a key role, in Italy as well as in Europe. Caput Mundi in Roman times and later seat of the papacy and the Capital of the Kingdom of Italy, on an international level Rome has always been a major political, cultural and spiritual influence.
