Golfing in Tuscany
With Tuscany’s picturesque rolling hills and mild climate, it is hard to imagine a better place for playing golf. That's what the British community in Florence must have thought in 1889 when they decided to lay out the first modern golf course in Italy a few kilometres north of the city. Since then, due to the superb natural setting, Tuscany has progressively transformed into a secret golfer’s paradise, offering a wide variety of golf courses in every part of the region.Here are 3 that you should visit when you next holiday in Tuscany in your August villa!
