Verdura Golf Resort - West Course
The West Course at the Verdura Golf Resort features a more traditional out-and-back routing compared to the East Course, its sister course. If you are searching for a fantastic course to play several outstanding holes with magnificent views throughout, then the West Course is perfect for you.
Whilst playing this course you will get the opportunity to experience some of the best views in Italy. From the Sicilian countryside as your backdrop throughout the first few holes to an old railway line being your backdrop for a few more holes, and then the seaside comes into view around the 8th and 9th holes. No expense was spared during the construction of the Verdura Golf Resort duo, and it is fair to say that the famous American architect, Kyle Phillips, has successfully created a pair of highly regarded golf courses both bearing invigorating challenges.

This fantastic golf course boasts a unique landscape, with multiple holes on the front nine lining an old railway line prior to the views of the Mediterranean Sea on the 8th and 9th holes. The par-3 3rd hole even features an old station as a backdrop. The 8th and 9th holes arguably boast some of the best views across the golf course, and are a pair of two shotters that close a stretch of fiver par-4s.
Whilst the East course is undeniably a greater challenge with more placement of water hazards and bunkers, the West course definitely offers the best views. Yet the West Course still does bear its own challenge; with many holes hugging the shoreline meaning your tee shot must be precise in order to avoid the water on one side, and strategically placed bunkers on the other side.
The back four are challenging, and require two or three of your best shots in order to reach the greens. The 18th hole is breath-taking as it runs along the cliff top giving you a fantastic view of the countryside and the Mediterranean Sea. Arguably the most challenging holes on the course include the 16th and final 18th hole, rated stroke index 2 and 4. These holes line the coastline, and truly push your limits with the longest fairways on the course, meaning you must utilise the strength of your drive. It would not be unfair to say that on this course you need to bring your A-game along with your favourite driver. The West Course at the Verdura Golf Resort is yet another course that you simply must play when visiting Italy.
