Built over a former horse-rearing estate which produced such horses as Nearco and Ribot, this great Roma club boasts 27 holes designed by Charles Kenneth Cotton and laid out by Piero Mancinelli. The main 18-hole course was much acclaimed during the 1968 and 1984 World Cups held here.
This is a classic course, where water comes into play only on two holes and where the main hazards are the very many trees and bunkers. In the fairways, bunkers are most penalizing for the better players, which might reassure visitors. Rather flat , there are nonetheless a few holes where you are driving blind, but within reason: generally speaking, this course reveals what it has in store. Interestingly, each hole has its own character, so ou remember them well. Each hole, too, gives a great sensation of space and isolation from one fairway to another. One of the great Italian courses.
