Puglia compete with European golf destinations

Italy Golf & More is a collaboration between private sector partner regions, the Italian Golf Federation and the Ministry of Tourism (MIBACT), who have come together to increase awareness, and future golf tourism traffic, from key European markets to Italy.

Puglia, Sicily, Lombardy, Piedmont, Lazio, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Veneto, Liguria, Emilia-Romagna – are some of the partner regions with 11 further regions falling under the investment of the Italian Golf Federation.

Bruno Bertero, project co-ordinator for Italy Golf & More, said: “Italy Golf & More has had great feedback at the Irish Open and BMW PGA Championship, and both Irish and British golfers are now increasingly aware of 141 18-hole courses in Italy – the majority of which can be played year-round.

“The lure of the Italian lifestyle – gastronomy, culture and art – plus the hosting of the Ryder Cup in Rome in 2022 raised significant interest towards Italy.

“We are glad to have this opportunity to promote Italy as a unique, emerging golf destination.”


So let’s discover together the wonderful resorts and golf club of the Mediterranean paradise called Puglia!
