 “A good golfer has the determination to win and the patience to wait for the breaks.” -Gary Player

"Join me for seven full days in Tuscany and Umbria,

playing some of the most beautiful golf courses in the whole of Italy.

We will visit three breathtaking vineyards and sample some of Italy's finest wines.  There will be a tour of Florence's city centre  together with our expert guide.  This is the ultimate golfing and cultural holiday"

and the standard of food and service is outstanding -  I know you'll fall in love with it.
