For the game's top players who have moved into course design, the key to success has always been the excellence of their engineers and architects. Gary Player learnt from experience, and so has Jac Nicklaus. Arnold Palmer has had a few parchy periods as well, but Castello di Tolcinasco is a layout oh high, not to say outstanding quality. This rather open and flat terain was just perfect for an American-style layout. It features three interchangeable 9-hole courses and has been selected to host the Italian Open from 2004 to 2006. The course is kept in ecellent condition and presents a variety of hazards, from bunkers to water to some very dangerous rough which calls for very straight hitting. Tough from the back tees, this layout becomes a more human the further forward you move, with just goes to show that you can take account of all levels of playing ability yet still design a good tournament course. Whatever, average mid-handicappers will have a lot of fun here.
