UNA Poggio dei Medici Golf Club, with its eighteen-hole, par 73, 6,468-metre
championship fairway, designed according to USGA standards by architect Alvise
Rossi Fioravanti and Florentine professional golfer Baldovino Dassù, is one of
the most prestigious courses in Italy.
Upon opening in 1992, Poggio dei Medici was acknowledged as the “Best New Golf
Course” and since then has constantly figured among the best courses in Italy
in the Il Mondo del Golf ratings. Recently it was selected as the “Best Golf Club”
on the “Condè Nast Traveller” hot list, outplaying courses like the K Club in
Ireland and Greenbrier in the United States.
The whole course, nestled in the green Mugello valley, protected by the Apennine
mountains, offers a pleasant climate and stupendous views. With its 5 different
starting tees for each hole, the course is suited to players of all levels and
has hosted international golf competitions: 5 Italian Women’s Opens (1999,2000,2001,2002,2003);
1 Alps Tour Open (2007); 3 European Challenge Tour Opens (2010, 2011 and 2013).
Thanks to the events organised here, our golf course is attracting increasing
interest and favour among the players taking part in club tournaments, eager to
get to grips with a course which has seen a great many professionals and champions
from all over Europe play here during the Opens. Without doubt, our facilities
and course can be considered a lodestar for Italian golf.
The strategic geographical location means it is easy to reach from all over Italy,
and the presence of the hotel with wellness centre and swimming pool directly
on site completes the facilities and also makes it popular among non-players.
UNA Poggio dei Medici Golf Club is situated a short distance from the international
airports of Florence, Bologna and Pisa. Also close by are the region’s main attractions,
