The Golf Nazionale course is situated in a rural area of the Lazio region, 40 kilometers from Rome. It boasts several rewards as a ‘Top ten course’ in Italy.
This technical, fascinating and amusing golf course is appreciated for the way its undulating land has been exploited, for the natural use of a crossing horseshoe shaped ditch, for the presence of beautiful secular oak trees, that stand out against the over 70 hectares of surrounding land.
Designed by George and Jim Fazio and David Mezzacane, the course is situated 300 meters above sea level, in a striking natural landscape of upper Lazio. According to eco-sustainable principles, the course is made of new generation Bermuda grass turf, suitable for Mediterranean climate and able to make it through cold winters.
Facing North, at the highest point of the club is set the first Driving Range, that offers a beautiful view on the Cimini mountains. On North-windy days, it’s also easy to catch sight of Terminillo and Gran Sasso mountains. This Driving range is set a few meters from the teeing ground of hole 1. This strategic position allows a relaxing and complete pre-competition warm-up practice.
The double-level hitting area is useful for practicing on grass the whole year through. In case of bad weather conditions, there are 6 comfortable covered driving range shelters. Moreover, two putting greens and a vast chipping area with a wide putting green and a bunker are available.
Next to the Driving range area there is a 3- hole Executive golf course, where beginners can start playing before gaining access to the Championship golf course.
In addition, there is the Golf Academy Driving range, used by golf professionals who choose ‘Golf Nazionale’ for their training, by National Golf School students and our golf courses junior athletes. The Golf Academy Driving range is provided with swing analysis equipments, a putting green, a chipping area and a 9-hole Pitch and Putt course.

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
