The Metaponto Golf Club, nestled in a lush citrus orchard, was founded in 2000 and is currently the second course at the Resort Riva dei Tessali championship and the first course of the Basilicata Championship. The field is characterized by wide fairways, undulating greens and water hazards. Among the most beautiful holes of the golf course there is the nr. 7, a Par 5 of 450 meters with a large lake bordering the fairway up behind the green. A few minutes away you will find the track of Riva dei Tessali, a par 71 designed by the British studio of John Harris, which runs through a pine forest just a few meters from the sea. The Club House, acquired from a white nineteenth-century farmhouse, is located at the center of a farm of 80 hectares. On the first floor of the farmhouse there are four elegant superior rooms and a suite overlooking the golf courses, equipped with satellite TV and hot tub. The sauna is at service of our guests who can also enjoy the beach located just a few kilometers away from the structures. The Colonial Restaurant serves traditional Lucan dishes, marked by the rediscovery of ancient flavors. The course Riva dei Tessali, famous for hosting the European Challenge Tour, is located in a pine forest that will test the accuracy of your shot. The excursion to Matera, “city of stones” named European capital of culture 2019 and UNESCO World Heritage Site, includes a visit to the typical houses built in the rock. Matera is also famous for the many films which were shot in this stunning location, among the most famous it’s worth mentioning Mel Gibson’s “The Passion”. The visit will end with a meal in the historic city center.
