UNA HOTEL ROMA


The story of the Federal Technical centre began in the early '80s, when the FIG (The Italian Golf Federation) saw the country needed a structure where national players and professionals could train and practice. The choice fell to a plot of land north of Rome, in an area rich in enchanting landscapes, amid the fascinating vestiges of the Etruscan civilization. So  near the ancient town of Sutri an 18-holes golf course was born, designed by George and Jim Fazio in collaboration with Davide Mezzacane. The structure is composed of two different but closely linked parts: an old farmhouse, now restructured with total respect for the spontaneous architecture typical of this area, hosts the Scuola nazionale di Golf, (National School of Golf) where training courses are held for professionals and greenkeepers, along with others for the psychological and athletic preparation of the national teams. Nearby, atop a hillock, stands the club  house of the association Le Querce that manages the golf course.

Comment read on the Peugeot Golf Guide
Le Querce is a course lined with oak-trees, which was opened in 1990 as a national golf centre for the Italian Golf Federation but also as a private club. The hosting of the world Cup here in 1991 highlighted the course's many qualities, but the not-so-good players can handle this okay as long they keep well away from the back tees. Playing from the tips is a very demanding experience for both power and precision. This is a very open course, though, and game strategy with respect to the dangers and hazards is clear enough. The sloping terrain calls for thoughtful club selection, because while the greens are on the large side, they are well guarded and steeply contoured; putting here is never easy if you are too far from the hole. To finish, make a note of two stretches which can make or break your card: 4 through 6 and 13 through 15... two "Amen Corners" and a natural state of affairs being so close to the Holy City
