Sample Puglia for great golf
By Chris Johnston
Against a backdrop of cobalt blue sky and the Adriatic Sea, San Domenico Golf is situated in Puglia, in the heel of Italy.
Famed for its whitewashed villages, World Heritage sites, unmatched cuisine and stunning coastline, Puglia is now firmly on Italy’s tourist map. The course nestles invitingly between the award-winning five-star Borgo Egnazia hotel and the Adriatic, which can be seen from every hole.
Described as a Mediterranean links and rated amongst the best golf courses in Italy, the course was completed in 2003. It has since hosted the Challenge Tour Grand Final eight times and offers a challenge for the professional and keen amateur alike.
Thanks to its location, the wind offers the biggest test and its creators, European Golf Design, have been careful to offer a fair and fun experience for everyone.
San Domenico Golf also benefits from excellent practice facilities, including a 300-yard double-ended driving range and short-game practice area. Borgo Egnazia, as a year round destination, offers an experience like nowhere else and is only a short-drive from both Bari and Brindisi airports.”
