golfWonderful Golf – Umbria, an unexpected Golfers paradise

Whoever heard of going to Italy for Golf! Spain yes, Portugal yes, America certainly, but Italy – really?!

Yes, we can just hear you now, but you would be wrong. Golf in Italy is a fast growing sport but at the moment remains an unspoilt delight particularly if you are not quite in Tiger Woods’ League yet.

Can you imagine deciding on the spur of the moment that you wanted to play golf, arriving at the golf course and being able to walk on to the course and play – well that is Golf around Lake Trasimeno in Umbria, Italy.

Add to that having a satisfying round with challenging holes, wonderful weather and scenery (yes we know you are not supposed to look) and you have some idea what golf is like in our area.

We are members of the Lambourgini golf Club, which is a challenging nine-hole golf course close to LakeTrasimeno. Within 25 kilometres there are two other Golf courses, Antognolla (27 holes) and Perugia (9 holes) and others are under construction.

Non-golfing partners are not left out as they can take advantage of the swimming pools and restaurants at both Antognolla & Lambourgini.
