Stunning golf course

After enormous investment by the new owners, this Championship course is a great test for all golfers and has some amazing holes. I would recommend you bring your A - game as there are numerous challenging holes on this undulating layout and it is easy to see why it was chosen to host the 2019 Italian PGA Championship.

Much improved

Last played the course in 2012 when the fairways were brown, but this year watering was much better and the course looked sensational. While generally shortish, the greens with sharp slopes are a solid defence. Generally well laid out with one daft par 5 right at the end of the course on the front nine. Hilły so buggy recommended if doing the full 18.

Great scenery, but not all good

Course is in a small valley with splendid views. Castle in background very nice. Some great golf holes, but fairways are not 100% in july. Some areas has less grass and have weeds. Also the rough has too high grass and finding the ball is difficult. Green are very good. Golf car is a must as it is very hilly golf course. Rental clubs is not good. Old stuff really.

Perfection - if you only play one course in Umbria, this is the one

If anything, the website does not do the course justice - it is even more spectacular than it looks.
It starts with the communications - booking tee time very efficient and friendly, then the welcome - friendly professional advice on how to get the best out of the course.
1st lulls you into a false sense of security as the complexity of each hole builds through to the truly spectacular 8th where you can either play with total confidence only to never see your ball again, or will you lose courage and take the safe route. You need to go there to understand.
Then the 17th, an innocent little par 3, until you see the green almost vertically below you.
Certainly a championship course but perfectly acceptable for poor golfers like me.
Not cheap - but this means it is not crowded - if you go in the height of summer and are not used to high temperatures - definitely start early.
Only criticism - the bunkers have very coarse and rock hard sand, more like playing off an abrasive fairway, but a big incentive to not get in them.

An enchanted castle,

After recent works, the Antognolla Golf Club ranks in the top 15 of my personal rating. Considering that the total investment is only at the beginning, I would say that in the future it will be, projects in hand, one of the most prominent golfing realities in Italy. Unfortunately for the number of players and fields, Umbria despite being very green is a bit of a tail light from Italy. In terms of infrastructure, it is useless to deny it, we are 1 / 1.5 hours away from the motorway access points. The new San Francesco Airport is adding destinations and therefore new carriers but the local government's policy regarding Incoming is inadequate. unfortunately we cannot stop to think if the egg or the hen was born first. We need wide-ranging policies in the medium to long term, it would be necessary for local governments, as in Spain to put themselves in the front line by dialoguing and guaranteeing, empty for full, agreements with the various low cost carriers. We read that Umbria has surpassed Tuscany for pleasantness and quality / cost ratio, but in order for golf to become a flywheel for the regional tourism budget, it is necessary that this sport is stripped of that dress a little snobby style now hobby exclusive for a few wealthy subjects. In the world golf is a sport for all budgets or almost, in Italy we are experiencing an unparalleled crisis, but precisely we have to sell what we have, a beautiful country that everyone envies us.

Golf course in a beautiful location

The golf course is in a very nice and good condition! Demanding to play, Cart is recommended! Service at the place - top! Drinks and refreshment towels were offered! We played weekdays, was very little going on! Very friendly staff at the reception, café and on the square! Always worth a visit!

Place well - space management miserable

For a long time I thought about how many stars I should give. The place is well laid out, very well maintained (June) and terrain very demanding. Very hilly with violent climbs. Comparable with the golf course Buflings in Oberstaufen. If you want to go by foot with a trolley, you have to be physically fit. Unfortunately, there are no e-trolleys to rent.
So far, it would actually be worth 5 stars.
Unfortunately, the golf course management is a disaster.
The alleged minimum HCP requirement of -36 is rather not interested. Which is not that bad.
From Friday on a TeeTime is required, but since there are no bag tags, no one can check the start time anyway. There is no Marshall far and wide either. As a result, a flight simply started at hole 4 (just outside hole 1) and pushed itself between the flights.
Before this flight then played a flight with 5 (!) Golfers. It was mentioned that they had a special permission.
Well then - wait at every hole a disaster. Two flights behind us have canceled the game. There are no front and back nines either. For this reason, the 9-hole players play until hole 6 and then turn to hole 16. Of course this leads to chaos at hole 16 and even more waiting time.
Conclusion: The place is great. Best to play on Monday morning...

Long and many meters in altitude

The challenge at the place is the height difference. Either man is very good on foot or by cart on the way. As many have described, the bunkers are a problem. Despite drainage only clay and stones. The sand was probably also "drained". Beautiful scenery paired with a sophisticated design.

Not a second time

Absolutely great was the very friendly welcome and the discount of 10%, which was granted without demand. That's why 2 stars and not just one. In the place state, the place is locked! This is not worth a reduced 50, - € in the week. Some balls middle fairway not found, because the grass is so high, all bunkers unplayable (concrete), some tracks blocked due to work, ...
The design: A few very beautiful tracks and many where the suitable terrain is missing. We did not enjoy it.
We walked, very exhausting. Goes for sporty ambitious players but. In midsummer but better with Cart.

Hmm...

In September 2017 I asked the club by email for a start time during the week. The answer came very quickly: No problem... when you want, just come by.
Also our Navi has found the golf course... however we are past it because no sign to the entrance of the GC is available.
The lady at the front desk was very friendly and informed us about everything. After payment of 60 € / player we are on the range to play a few balls. The tee-off mats are so thoroughly durchgeudelt... naja..
At tea 1 arrived we noticed the effects of the heat and dryness of the very hot summer 2017, fairways and tees were extremely dried out, the greens however in a very good condition!
Because of the last rainy days almost all the bunkers were filled with water. (Even without water they were unplayable because there was no sand)

Conclusion: The complex is beautiful in a valley with a view of a Castello. The price-performance ratio is however due to the condition of the plant unreasonably high! In the spring when everything grows, grows and blooms it is certainly a great plant.
The place is sophisticated but not unfair. We walked with trolleys.

Super Site

How can not understand the review of Kurkl.
Our Navi has found the place easily, I think this is the Navi and not on the golf course. The place itself is in top condition, long tracks and perfect greens, but not easy to play. We both Hcp. 10, have played the course on 9/24/16 and rate it as very good and challenging.

Objection!

We have taken on the basis of current assessments the arduous journey from Montalcino on us. Our Navi not recognize the place and we found not a single sign ( "Yes, earlier there had been a ...") - unfortunately we found him anyway. After all, € 150 with cart; 120 for the layout (I hope Traint Jones has no idea how the place looks), the rest of the space. Can not remember to have received as little quality as much money myself. It looks like a place "in the middle of nowhere" out, the run out of money. who considers me a troublemaker: I like to step up to the photo evidence!

Very interesting

We have the place on 06/09. played. One must not be misled by the location and the somewhat rustic-style ambience. The course offers from the first to the last hole challenges, but never unfair. Good shots are rewarded, bad shots do not always immediately punished. With the surrounding mountains and the castle has always an interesting panorama. The use of carts is recommended because the course is not only quite steep, the routes between Green and the next tee are sometimes quite long!
Unfortunately all Bunkter were completely flooded and virtually rain unplayable, so only good 4 stars.

A must, must

Have played the course on 5/16/16. Since Trent Jones Junior has conjured a highlight in the admittedly difficult topography. The place must have played. All holes have their own individual design. Greens are very nice but never waved unfair. Was a horny round, especially since we were almost alone on the court. Buggie is however recommended. The best for last, finished the round at 16.30. closed the clubhouse kitchen. Yet wonder of wonders, the operator has been threw the stove for us and made a round of spaghetti. Who knows Italy, know that here in the country at 16.00 neither may eat shopping yet. The miracle was thus already the round value. Play the court this week again. It is worthwhile and we will definitely come again.

A MUST if you "pass by" in Umbria

A great golf course, where one has no idea 500m from the finish, that someone (Trent Jones!) Can build a golf course (comparable to Adamstal in NC). Many meters that are best solved with a CART, absolutely fair, some very spectacular holes of challenging greens. Friendly service both at reception and in the restaurant, is also recommended. Then an intensive visit to the beautiful PERUGIA, and the dot on the "I" is ready.
