Courses to visit in Tuscany?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

On a vacation in Tuscany for three weeks.  Anyone have any courses they would recommend?  Going to be staying in Montecatini but easy train rides to Pisa, Florence.

 

Would specifically love to find somewhere with a driving range, if possible, where i can buy just hitting balls without a round (Tough to find, I know).  English speaking not required.

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Best,

 

John

In the week I spent in Tuscany, I never saw or heard of a golf course at all.  I had no interest in it either so that might be part of it.  I can't imagine wasting any of my time in such an incredible region at a driving range - there are far better things to do there.

+1.

 

So many vineyards, bodegas and restaurants, so little time......

Tuscany has a dozen or so golf courses. Check out the regional website:

(There's a Tuscany golf course in Las Vegas, so that may be all you get unless you include Italy in the Google search).

I played a course called Poggio dei Medici in Scarperia. It's about 30 km north of Florence. Beautiful setting.Here's a link to photos
