The comprehensive Sheraton Golf Parco de' Medici is ringed by a 27-hole golf complex, designed in a modern resort style, which is absolutely perfect for a golf holiday.
The Blue Course is the most challenging of the three loops at the resort, and at 3,247 yards, is also the longest. There are a number of lakes that certainly beautify the landscape, but also provide dangerous obstacles. Walking up the closing fairway, you may notice the remains of an ancient Roman settlement.
The White Course - 3,057 yards - also boasts an impressive historical anecdote; the layout covers land that was the favoured hunting ground of Pope Leo X in the 15th century. As for the course today, the expanses of water that infringe upon many holes can seriously upset the scorecard.
The Red Course is the shortest at Parco de' Medici, measuring a modest 2,805 yards, but it is perhaps the most interesting of the resort's three loops. As with the Blue and White courses, Italian design team consulted American architectural legend Peter Fazio, and have created a great little course that will challenge golfers to use every club in the bag.
