Fantastic landscape

We have been playing in january 2013 and we were lucky to have perfect weather for golf: 14 degrees and a lot of sunshine. The course is very beautiful, apart from the bunkers, who were almost unplayable. There were a lot of divots on the fairways and at least 8 pitchmarks on every green, it seems that the italian players don't use too much the repairing tools. It is one of the most beautifully designed golfcourses I've ever played, a similar one is in Spain, designed by the late Seve Ballesteros. The greens are pretty ondulated and well constructed, guarded by a lot of bunkers, the fairways very large and with a nice shape. A lot of trees, some water in the middle and lots and lots of ducks and swans walking peacefully on thengrass. A real heaven, very nice to play and walk. Buggy is almost useless, unless you have a heart condition. I can barely wait to play again there.

A dream camp!

As soon as we finished the lock down, taken by a great desire to play, we went with two friends to the Castelgandolfo Golf Club because it was one of the few courses that we had never attended.
Upon arrival, entering the garden terrace of the Club, we were ecstatic and surprised for a few minutes. Aside from the beauty of the place, I would say indescribable, we could see that from the balcony you could see the whole route below, with its fairways and emerald-colored greens, its lakes full of migratory birds, maritime pines and other varieties of plants and olive trees.
All within a crater!
After passing all the checks (scrupulous ...) required by the anti Covid protocols and grateful for such kindness and hospitality, we faced the field.
The adjectives could be many, but we would say BEAUTIFUL, well-kept, engaging and why not even difficult, especially in the shots on the green and with the putts you still have a lot of Golf to play...
As a first time it is better to omit our scores!
The locker rooms are beautiful and well equipped, very peculiar being underground.
The restaurant also offers a variety of well-kept dishes and the service is very cordial, almost as if we had been members of the club. Absolutely normal and average prices, in our opinion they could also ask for a little more.
Staff from all over the Club absolutely professional, kind and welcoming.
I have to say that it was an excellent day, as a good 5 star, which ended too soon, so we will return shortly to relive these good moments and to hope for better scores.

Place interesting - service and club house leaves much to be desired

We chose this place because we welcome dogs here. My first impression after visiting the secretariat and club house - this will probably not be a special place.
Error - the place was in very good condition and the layout was surprisingly good.
Less fortunate was that members who played a match play game and played the back 10 holes first were preferred and allowed to tee off in front of us.
In front of us was also a flight (scramble private tournament), who knew neither the rules nor the etiquette. 9 holes in 3 hours are a bit too much of a good thing. At hole 7 there were a total of 4 flights either while playing or waiting.
For the place I like to give 4 stars. Everything else deserves 0 - 2 stars.
Therefore overall the rating "average"

Perfect combination Rom, relax and golf

Older place with vintage character of the clubhouse. Very friendly service in the secretariat and at Caddiemaster, Italian relaxed. Place was played several times in December 2018 in good weather. No problem with start time. Could start immediately despite good traffic of the place. Spectacular views of the distant Mediterranean coast of Lochs 1 and 10. On the square in a different direction View of the peaks of the churches and the former summer residence of the Pope in CastelGandolfo (just under 3 km). One overlooks the whole place and its vegetation of a former volcanic crater. With the exception of holes 1 and 10, of which you play down spectacularly, a flat place, very good to play with a trolley. At some holes water comes into play but overall a very fair place. Accurate play requires hole12 par 3 and good management is required in the face of the greens at hole 15 par 5. I recommend a station wagon with the guesthouse ATLANTIS INN in CastelGandolfo. It is best to book the suite (2-day maisonette) with terrace and impressive views of Lake Albano. Perfect tasteful design in an old house in the old town. The perfect combination of city tourism Rome (station only 250 m walk away, you can do without stress on car, just 30 minutes to Roma Termini in the middle of Rome) with golfing and relaxing in quiet but sophisticated accommodation. Owner Francesco is a service miracle!! Restaurants of all categories within walking distance. The combination has totally convinced us.

Castell Katastropho

On the first men's tee of the lawn was completely destroyed and the discount you had to coordinate with the ongoing sprinklers already around 16:00 clock. The bunkers are made of cementitious "sand" or they are overgrown by wild plants. A normal bunker play is not possible. The clubhouse mediated lost charm of better times. The showers were extremely unkempt. After our return from the place everything was dark and deserted. The key of the carts we could then just hang on the front door of the clubhouse.

Dream Place

We played the course several times in April 2013 and will not last long boring. Verzeit but no error when landing times next to the fairway, it is very difficult once again to play the ball back.
The course is in great condition eimem. Only the sign of missing tea to tea, because you have to look pretty at the first time. Warmly Glückwunscht to the Greenkeeper great job.
The staff at the golf clubs are very Friendly The office and help where it can.
The caddy master is also very helpful broad and does everything to make you feel comfortable right.
Restaurante in the upper are very friendly and helpful.
Hotel rooms have Italian standard, tiled say anything, but very spacious.
The staff is great, take care of everything, be it around tables or in their own Restaurante also in the area.
We can only recommend the whole department each

Wonderful scenery, good layout

I have the place early March 2012, played, ie at a time when the place was certainly not quite at the level of its state (fresh aerifizierte greens and tw fairways, some grave work on a new irrigation.) - But it can be seen that the course will be in good condition, the greens seem medium fast and consistent. The characteristic can be like - or not: American... appear long, elongated orbits, the usual Grünbebunkerung to play everything very fair, but just a little bit bland '- the surprises do not occur here, one has a decent discount, knock off the player constant, it could be very boring (to the very slow tempo of the locals: 4 1/2 to 5 hours for a round are considered as "normal") ... Conclusion: wonderful location, incredibly beautiful, bucolic view from the Club Restaurant on the entire golf course, located in a former volcanic crater, the place is a bit conventional fall - as Trent-Jones was to be expected (!). Tip: If it is difficult to Rome and loves varied Marco Simone Golf Club or Olgiata.
