VERSILIA GOLF CLUBThe Versilia Golf Club, designed by John Harris with the help of Marco Croze, is a 72 par course. The course is suitable both for amateurs and professionals due to the placing of its tees.The 18 holes are developed on an area of about 53 hectares and unwind over 5,878 meters and leave available area for a covered driving range and putting greens. The characteristics of this golf course are not usually found in Italy. In fact, they are more common in the States, especially in the Southern states such as Florida. This is due to the abundant presence of water in this area. For this reason, many holes are concerned with water obstacles, and not just small ponds, but also vast surfaces which can remarkably affect the play. Due to a particular choice of trees and plants, the setting looks natural, not forced.




Tuscany is located in central Italy and stretches from the Apennines to the Tyrrhenian Sea. 
Its landscape, artistic heritage and stand-out cities - first among them Florence - make Tuscany an unquestioned protagonist of international tourism. In this region, nature has many different facets, starting from the coast that alternates long and sandy beaches, like the Versilia beach, with rocky cliffs and steep headlands. The islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation, a crystal-clear sea and rich seabeds, are peerless. 
You can admire sceneries of uncontaminated nature in the Apuan Alps and in several protected areas, such as the Orbetello Lagoon, home to many species of migrant birds, including pink egrets. 
However, the most typical sceneries of the region are those that merge the beauty of nature with the millenary work of man. The amazing Gulf of Baratti and the sites of VetuloniaVulci and Pitigliano guard necropoli and vestiges of the Etruscan civilization, while Roselle and Cosa evoke memories from the Roman Age.
 
Medieval villages, historical towns, castles and defense systems, country churches (the so-called pievi) and beautiful abbeys, like the one of Sant'Antimo, are scattered all over the territory and their profiles stand out in the landscapes of the Crete SenesiOrcia ValleyGarfagnanaChianti and the Maremma
Finally, Tuscany is full of spas: Montecatini, Saturnia, Montepulciano, Monsummano and Bagno Vignoni, which offer relaxing holidays thanks to their thermal waters and well-equipped facilities for all types of treatments. 

The provinces of the region are: Florence (regional capital), ArezzoGrossetoLivornoLuccaMassa CarraraPisaPistoiaPrato and Siena

 

 

GROSSETO

The Province of Grosseto lies in southern Tuscany and reaches from the slopes of the Colline Metallifere (Metalliferous Hills) to the border with Lazio, comprising the multifarious landscapes of the Maremma
The coastline between the Gulf of Follonica and the mouth of the Chiarone River offers sceneries of singular beauty dominated by pine forests and crystal-clear waters. It is home to famous resorts such as Marina di GrossetoPrincipina a MareCastiglione della PescaiaPunta Ala and Punta Talamone

Tourist destinations of international renown include Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole, the two pearls of Monte Argentario - the green promontory stretching out to the sea and surrounded by a high and rocky coastline. It is connected to the mainland by the long sandy beaches of Giannella and Feniglia, nicknamed “the necks”. Pristine landscapes and magnificent views are the characterizing features of the Islands of Giglio, Giannutri and Formiche di Grosseto, favorite diving spots thanks to the population of colorful seabed flora.
The hinterland is also rich in possibilities. In the Monterondo Marittimo area of the wild Colline Metallifere, the Biancane Natural Park is just waiting to be discovered. An area noted for the emission of hot, white steam from the depths of the earth, it boasts extraordinary landscapes and a surreal atmosphere. 
Another typical environment here is Maremma Grossetana, where the wide plains of OmbroneFiora and Albegna intersperse with hills. 

The Maremma is the land of the buttero (the typical local cowboy), of authentic local products, of rural traditions handed down over the centuries, and of pure, wild nature. 
Numerous protected zones thrive in this area, including the Parco Naturale della Maremma e Monti dell’Uccellina; the Natural Reserve of the Lagoon of Orbetello, an immense mirror of water that welcomes many species of birds every season; and Burano Lake, a magnificent coastal saltwater lake and WWF Oasis

In the southeastern corner of the Province, the so-called “Tufo area” is characterized by erosive phenomena, beautiful villages and very important Etruscan necropolises
Apart from its natural beauty and the variety of its environments, the Province of Grosseto is home to considerable artistic heritage, art settlements, small and fascinating centers impressed by the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and archaeological sites that conserve Roman and Etruscan finds. 
A rich gastronomic tradition and the excellent local wines add an extra touch of magic to this fascinating land.
