An Update on Sicily Golf Situation

An Update on Sicily Golf Situation

As you know, we have been sponsoring Sicily as a perfect golf destination for many reasons: climate, food, wine, art, architecture, archaeology, culture, the courtesy of the Sicilians, one of the oldest people whose origin is lost in the mists of the past, and of course golf.


Until last October, we could count on 7 golf courses: 2 at Verdura, 2 at Donnafugata, 2 in Siracusa, 1 on the Etna. And now?


Now, the number of courses dropped to only 3 for a series of different circumstances:

  • 1 at Verdura (18 holes) in the southwest, 20-minute drive from Sciacca;
  • 1 at I Monasteri Golf Resort (18 holes), in the southeast, 20-minute drive from Syracuse;
  • 1 at Il Picciolo Golf Resort (18 holes), in the northeast, 45-minute drive from Taormina, on the slopes of the Etna volcano.


Despite the reduced numbers of courses, we insist in promoting Sicily as a golf destination because it is a great region that you cannot miss.
