This week two former Masters champions, Trevor Immelman and Mike Weir, will join a host of former European Tour winners and Ryder Cup players at the inaugural Rocco Forte Open at Verdura Resort in Sicily.
The Rocco Forte Open is set to feature the top-ranked professional golfers in Europe as they compete for the title under sunny skies on the largest island in the Mediterranean, and put the finishing touches to their preparations for the European Tour’s flagship PGA Championship at Wentworth next week.
Verdura provides a golf resort with a club-like feel. Set on 230 hectares of stunning traditional Sicilian landscape against the backdrop of the azure Mediterrean sea, Verdura’s golf facilities include two outstanding 18-hole championship courses – the East Course and West Course – and a nine-hole par-three course all designed by Kyle Phillips, as well as a driving range. It has been named as Italy’s number one golf venue in an industry list of continental Europe’s top 100 golf resorts.
Whilst in resort guests can indulge in all the fabulous facilities on offer such as the rejuvenating spa, tennis courts, an array of water sports, among many others - or if you prefer, just relax and unwind on the beach with gorgeous ocean vistas.
