The Roman aqueducts and views of Castelli Romani creates a unique atmosphere in which to play golf at Fioranello meaning the fact that you’re teeing it up in Italy is never too far from the forefront of your mind.
The course only measures in at just over 6,000 yards so it’s by no means long by modern standards, but a total of 36 bunkers and a spattering of water hazards, as well of course as the rows of mature trees that line the fairways, accentuating many of the doglegs, create an intriguing challenge.
The course arguably has 2 signature holes, the 10th and 15th, both of which skirt a sizeable water hazard. The par 5 10th hole is reachable in 2 for longer hitters with forcing those laying up with their second to think about their yardages, while the par 4 15th requires an accurate tee shot with the lake lurking down the left hand side of this hole too.
Overall, Fioranello Golf Club is an excellent addition to a Rome golf holiday, and thanks to the club’s philosophy that looks to combine a top class course with the social aspects of golf, you’re sure to feel right at home.
