Pevero Golf Club

• Championship Course

Robert Trent Jones, Sr. (1972) 18 holes - 6,681 yds - Par 72

Venue of the Italian Open

The layout is highly strategic and distance is a matter of relative importance here. A good score at Pevero calls for virtuosity and technique rather than power or length off the tees. The course is extremely difficult from the championship tees, but more accessible from the front tees. This is an ideal course for match-play and an extremely stimulating challenge for low and high handicappers alike.

According to golf insiders, the Pevero Golf Club—with its unforgettable panorama—is heralded as one of the most stunning golf courses in the world. Opened in 1972 under the direction of legendary golf course and landscape architect Robert Trent Jones, the course gained international acclaim so rapidly that it was elected to host the 1978 Italian Golf Open. To this day, the Pevero Golf Club attracts a loyal clientele of the most experienced and passionate golf players from across the globe.

The four-square-mile course is nestled in between the glittering emerald waters of the bay of Cala di Volpe and the Gulf of Pevero—in the very heart of the fabulous Costa Smeralda. Likened to a lush green carpet, the sweeping fairways and meticulous greens not only benefit from the brilliance of the original design, but also from the continuous research conducted on the wind, rain, soil, and temperature changes by the dedicated staff of greenkeepers.

• Practice Facilities

In addition to the spectacular course, the Pevero Golf Club features an expert putting and pitching green, a bunker and chipping green, and a driving range with 20 outdoor and five indoor spaces perfect for instruction and practice. A golf pro is available for private lessons. The club requires that soft spike shoes are worn during play. Children over the age of six are welcome under the supervision of an adult.

 

Golf in Sardinia & Corsica

Golf in Sardinia & Corsica

Both other golf clubs on the island are  over 200 km. away, so your best alternative in the region for a day golfing excursion is Sperone (Bonifacio), on the neighbouring french island of Corsica and a 30 min. ferry crossing away.

• Sperone Golf Club (Corsica)

Robert Trent Jones, Sr. (1990)

Sperone is located on a breathtaking site at the southern tip of Corsica, overlooking the Mediterranean, the tiny islands of Cavallo and Lavezzi, and Sardinia across the Bonifacio strait. Set over a 135 hectare estate on a peninsula jutting into the sea and covered with Mediterranean heathland. On this privileged piece of land, Robert Trent Jones has designed a masterpiece and surely one of its best course ever, as he himself admits. Many holes on the sea shore may perfectly be compared to the sequences of oceanside holes at Pebble Beach.

• Is Arenas Golf & Country Club

Robert von Hagge (2000)

This majestic golf course extends over 2500 acres of dunes and woodlands, amidst an unspoilt pine forest extending all the way down to the mile long sandy beach. In these beautiful natural surroundings, the fairways wind their ways through pines, eucalyptus, myrtle trees and mimosas, the natural habitat for jays, weasels and foxes. The several and often dangerous water hazards are naturally part of the course and also provide a refreshing touch, at least visually ! 

• Is Molas Golf Club

Henry Cotton & Frank Pennink + Piero Mancinelli (1975)

Is Molas has hosted the Italian Open on three occasions and it is a regular stop of the European PGA Challenge Tour. Although a classic Mediterranean course, most of the tees afford panoramic view of the emerald sea, Is Molas light, wind and surroundings are somewhat reminiscent of Scotland and California. 

Costa Smeralda & Sardinia

Costa Smeralda & Sardinia

The Resort sits on a spectacular 55-kilometer stretch of Sardinian coastline known as Costa Smeralda—or “Emerald Coast”—due to the deep green colour of the Mediterranean sea. Dramatic rock formations—windswept into sculptural reliefs by the Mistral—are as characteristic of the area’s astonishing beauty as the fragrance of laurel, oleander, and juniper carried on the ocean breeze. The meandering coast forms hidden inlets of aqua blue water perfect for swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving. Open from April through October of each year, the resort enjoys endless sunshine and balmy temperatures from 20 to 27 degrees Celsius, while the ocean warms to an ideal 23 degrees Celsius.

Sightseeing

La Maddalena Islands—Take a motor boat to this famed archipelago, with its enchanting coves of “Manto della Vergine”—crystal clear water—and pristine white sand beaches. Explore the lovely islands of Caprera, Budelli, Spargi, La Maddalena, and Santa Maria along the way.

San Pantaleo—Visit the open-air market, held every Thursday in the charming church square of this traditional Sardinian village. Musicians play in the shade of pink and red oleander trees, while local artisans and farmers offer a colourful display of crafts and produce.

Nuraghi Stone Structures—Appealing to history enthusiasts, these massive Bronze Age shelters of symmetrically laid stones offer a fascinating glimpse into the legacy of the Nuraghi—Sardinia’s ancient indigenous people. Tours may be arranged to the most prominent structures scattered across the island.

Porto Cervo—Truly Mediterranean in spirit, this idyllic port town of graceful archways, pastel-hued homes and flowering cascades of bougainvillea is a shopper’s dream, where international designers easily mix with locally crafted ceramics, textiles, and jewellery. At night, Europe’s glitterati mingles in the chic outdoor cafés or dances into the early morning hours at one of the many glamorous nightclubs.
