Molto Magnifico – Montecatini Golf Club Italy By Dave Finn
The first thing I noticed as we drove up to the front entrance of the Montecatini Golf Club was the beautifully restored Tuscan stone estate home turned clubhouse that dates back to the 11th century. From the terrace, we had an unparalleled view of the course we were about to play.
Celebrating its 29 anniversary in 2014, this 18-hole par 72 is only 46 km drive northwest of Florence near the city of Montecatini Terme. Designed by Architect A. Croze, this very hilly 5700 meter (around 6300 yards) layout lets you play through the valleys and along the ridges. Set amongst the olive groves, Montecatini features many doglegs and multi-level greens that put emphasis on accuracy rather then distance. There are 4 sets of tees to test all levels of players and your driver is not needed for the first 3 holes.
