Blaze a trail for Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler. In 2023, the Ryder Cup comes to Italy, and you can play its prestigious host course while you’re at one of our Italy villas.
You’ll learn from, and play 18 holes with, Alessandro Resseguier, a golf professional and certified Italian Golf Federation teacher with extensive experience of the Marco Simone championship course. As you go around, he’ll share tips on improving your game, and advice on how to beat this Par-72 course.
Playing Marco Simone is a memorable experience. This undulating masterpiece was designed by famous course architect Jim Fazio, and surrounds a 1,000-year-old castle tower. And where else in the golfing world can you see the dome of St. Peter’s from the fairway?
Our experience offers a unique chance to refine your skills in the company of a PGA professional, and to relax afterwards in Marco Simone’s clubhouse. This is a day you’ll never forget.
And when Europe/USA (delete as appropriate) sink that winning putt in 2022, you can say: “I’ve been there!”
