Golf in Naples Italy?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I may be spending a few years in Naples Italy. There doesn't seem to be a tremendous amount of golf over there. Has any been near the area that could recommend some courses over there?

Re: Golf in Naples Italy?

I found a list for you on the net - http://www.golfeurope.com/euro_clubs...lf-courses.htm - it looks indeed as there arent that many courses around Naples (have been there as well as on the surrounding islands as a non golfer couple years back and didnt noticed any).

In the north especially in the tourist regions Lake Garda/Toscana there is a bigger variety of courses. I had been to Lake Garda last year and through a coincidence i stayed at a golf resort so i took my clubs with me - i wouldnt go back there for golf. The practice facilities were in really bad shape, and the course lacked a lot of attention from the green keepers (and this was to be supposed one of the better courses). I played on better courses in 3rd world countries, honestly...

Last fall I was in Trieste, Italy and got to play the Golf Club of Trieste. I was very surprised at how many people spoke English. Also people at the course were very kind and helpful. A very nice experience in Italy.

I lived in La Madalena, Sardinia for 4 years. Stationed there when there was a naval base there.

I never golfed over there but there is something you need to try when you go to Naples. They are famous for their mozzerella di bufala. It is mozzerella cheese made with buffalo milk. It is the best. When you order caprese (tomato and mozzerella cheese as an appetizer), make sure it is buffalo. One thing though, you will be spoiled forever after eating it once. And, it is very expensive here in the states.

Have fun over there, I loved it.

Yeah, it looks like most the courses are in the north. Not much to the south.

I agree, Italy has an excellent kitchen overall imo and it isnt really expensive at all.
Just stay away from the tourist traps and look for family run trattorias with lots of local traffic - you will discover tastes you never expierenced before even in such simple dishes as tomato and mozzerella or just a roasted chicken.

If you are into food, Italy is a fine place...
