Monasteri Golf Course
Monasteri Golf Course, recently opened in 2013, has already established itself as a challenging and fantastic golfing experience. Designed by David and Vincenzo Mezzacane, the course layout is moderately flat on the majority of holes, however, long and tight fairways provide a stern test of your accuracy.
This par-71 golf course was designed to incorporate the local fauna to full effect, featuring large cork trees, olive and pear trees scattered across the course. By doing so, this golf course now boasts a beautifully natural terrain which blends in perfectly with the Sicilian landscape. The Monasteri Golf Course is a great course for all levels of golfer; with an impressive 5 sets of tee off options available, the course welcomes its arms to all players, regardless of their handicap or skillset.
Despite being easily playable by most amateur players, even the most skilled player will be kept on their toes here with several strategically placed obstacles and narrow fairways. Although the terrain is typically very level, the greens can be very tight and long therefore the choice of tee off position is very important.

The course has saved the best till last with truly spectacular views of the Iblea hills on the 18th.

Designed within an 86-hectare orange and lemon tree plantation, this golf course is the perfect place for an invigorating round of golf in a stunning setting. Due to the nature of the construction across the course, the holes do not appear as artificial interruptions of the plantation. Furthermore, fortunately for players, Sicily boasts a mild temperature all year round therefore this spectacular golf course can be experienced whenever.
