Could do better

A well designed course, front nine through orange and lemon groves, back nine a little more water. Good length and a nice mix of par 3,4 and 5 holes.
Greens in very good condition.
Staff very friendly and helpful, prices fair, €60 green fee and the trolleys given for free given it was early season in February.
Shame the fairways have not been well maintained, grass already being taken over by weeds and not sure how much better they will get once the sun starts to shine in the months to come.
Nonetheless a course worth playing and much better than the Etna course at Il Picciolo.

Wonderful course

There is no hole which is boaring, perfect greens, also good fairways, it plays like a links course, we played a lot of courses all over the world but this is one of our favorits. The only thing to improve are the bunkers, which are very hard without sand. Overall it was a exciting golf round and we highly recommend this course

Golf by the Orange Trees

I Monasteri is not an easy golf course. Distance-wise, it compares with any other golf course I have played in Sicily. But the roughs are unforgiving and unkempt. Miss the fairway left or right, and prepare yourself for an investment in ball-hunting, most probably followed by a drop. The greens are in good condition but traffic unfolds as it presents itself amidst the total absence of any ranger instruction - conceding that I played on 30 December. I had to get the pro-shop attendant called to buy some balls between the front and the back nine (because, when you miss the fairway...), but the service and support was OK. What makes I Monasteri very special is that it is an orange orchard. The scent, the beauty of the small trees and fruit and the lines of the orchard are very pleasant to see (when you are not looking for your ball in the rough...). Well worth one round!

I Monasteri Golf Village is a joy!

This legitimate resort is a delight in southeastern Sicily with a beautiful hotel, pool, dining facilities, and golf course in close proximity to the splendid sand beaches. I Monasteri is within an hour drive of the Catania airport and majority highway. The golf training facilities were in good shape with putting green, chipping green and driving range. The golf pro was very nice. The costs to play was reasonable. Though I did not play the course today... The fairways looked demanding of your top game. The greens seemed firm & rolling. I look forward to teeing up & hearing the lovely sound of the ball in the bottom of the cup. Cheers.

Golf between prickly pear cacti and old walls

We played half the course on two different days. The first 9 holes are really nice and difficult, but the second are also fun. The staff was super friendly and both the green fee and the rental fee for clubs, bags and trolleys were cheaper than expected. The fairways and greens were almost continuously green at the beginning of September. You can't expect more at this time of year in Sicily. All in all, a very nice facility, in which you just feel really comfortable if you don't have excessive expectations.

Best value in Sicily

The course is varied and long, the fairways are largely in good condition, the greens well maintained, if a bit soft. Overall, there is not much going on, which makes a relaxed game possible. The green fee is 55.00 euros, compared to the other places that is at least a realistic price. Clubhouse and Range are in need of improvement, but I only came to play :-)

Nice place, little golfers

The place is very nice and thanks to the new hotel owner 'Allegroitalia' a lot is invested in the care.

The greens are partly very soft.

There are very few golfers on the road. We were almost always alone on the pitch.

The place is open!!

The place is, in spite of heat, in a good condition (for Italian conditions)! Wide lanes, flat, but surprisingly fast greens, all around a place with noble surroundings (monastery). Fair prices (Weekend 80 Euro).

A challenge that is fun

We play the course in November and he is in very good condition. As a single handicapper irritate the white tees for men and blue for the ladies and require precise long game. Also by the yellow and red tee boxes to provide enough challenges. The holes are varied and on the one or the other rail, water comes into play. Here you can spend a really successful golf day. Very nice reception at the Club Office and friendly service in the club bar.

Unfortunately, lack of care

We played the course in June 2014. First paid € 200 for two people and kart could expect a nice round. Unfortunately turned out everything that the course is completely neglected and fairways and greens in a field more than reminiscent of a golf course. It's a pity about the beautiful scenery and course architecture. The staff and the service is unfortunately little courteous. A golf experience that we would like to have saved us.

Excellent golf course

My wife and I (both HC 18) have the very beautiful place beginning in October 2013 played three times with a lot of fun.
- Long tracks, with good discount Driver needed to reach fairways.
- Fairways and Green in absolute freeze state.
- Except us very little player. Reduction was possible in any way.
- Hotel is top (free Wi-Fi in the reception area), including swimming pool and hot tub.
- Dinner we have always enjoyed abroad, mainly in and around Syracuse, as everywhere in Italy excellent and very well priced.

We will hopefully be back.

Golf course not finished

The golf course is not quite ready yet. We have the place on 6 June 2013 played. The paths between the fairways have to look for some. Poor signage. Urban but very difficult golf course. In my opinion more of a links course as a parkland course. Very narrow fairways and long holes. We could play our HC (15.2 & 15.8) does not close.
