Leading golf architect Kyle Phillips, renowned for his championship courses at Kingsbarns in Scotland and The Grove in England, has designed an astonishing range of courses that work in close harmony with the beautiful Sicilian landscape. There are two championship 18-hole courses and a 9-hole course, all set amid olive and orange groves and with spellbinding views of the azure Mediterranean Sea. These are free of any buildings, allowing players to enjoy golf at its purest.
