Robert Trent Jones, Jr.
The 18-hole Antognolla Golf Course is situated in the 600 hectare estate of Antognolla in the heart of Umbria. It is considered by many who have played it to be one of the most interesting and spectacular golf courses in Italy. The course is a design masterpiece by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. The layout features dramatic cliff-lined fairways, beautiful lakes, and stunning views of the medieval castle and surrounding countryside, giving golfers 18 holes of pure pleasure. This unforgettable golfing experience gives plenty of change in elevation and visual impact. Each hole provides a new and exciting challenge, all with a stunning natural backdrop of the Umbrian countryside. The clever design makes this an enjoyable experience for both the low and high handicap golfer. Each will leave the 18th hole having felt challenged, uplifted by the beauty and determined to return to tackle Antognolla again. Robert Trent Jones Jr. design at Antognolla puts a premium on long straight drives, and the large undulating greens means accurate approach shots will be rewarded. Fairway bunkers are well positioned to make one consider club choice from the tees and wayward approach shots can quickly be swallowed by the large deep green side bunkers to challenge your sand play. At first appearance the course seems open and indefensible however as soon as you step onto the 1st tee you understand the masterpiece that is Antognolla. Any match arriving at the signature 18th hole will still have all to play for. This risk and reward hole means those who risk a tight drive close to the lake will have a shorter approach to the dangerous green and a potential victory. Playing at Antognolla will be an unforgettable golf experience that will remain long in the memory
