Marco Simone Golf & Country Club
The Marco Simone Golf & Country Club is the official host venue of the 2022 Ryder Cup and offers a superb 27-hole layout . Located 10 miles from the centre of Rome, the course is built around a picturesque 11th century castle and offers spectacular views of Saint Peters dome from a variety of holes.

This challenging and intriguing layout features several elevation changes, narrow tree lined fairways and several water hazards along the way.

The Resort Course offers another 9-hole lay out (which is often played twice for a full 18) and is the perfect practice round before the main event. Set in the same location as the Championship Course, the Resort Course still offers the same breath-taking views and undulating Roman terrain, as well as being immaculately maintained to a similar standard. Despite being shorter, the round here is still relatively tricky, so bring you’re A game.
The practice facilities here are some of the best in Italy and provide you with everything you need to be prepared for the challenging course ahead. The 19th hole promises the perfect setting with panoramic views for you to indulge in a post round beverage.
