Verdura tees off for course improvements

SICILY'S Verdura resort is implementing a winter golf course improvement programme. 

Already recognized as one of Europe's elite golf destinations – and named 'Best Golf Hotel in #Italy' at the 2015 World Golf Awards – the venue is carrying out significant maintenance work on all three of its Kyle Phillips-designed courses.

Verdura's team of greenkeepers is in the process of finishing a major bunker reconstruction programme to improve drainage, playability, and presentation, with the work due to be completed by the end of May.

David Waters, golf manager at the resort, said: ‘#Verdura is such a special place to play golf and the maintenance being carried out over the winter will further enhance the resort's reputation as one of the best and most beautiful places to play golf anywhere in Europe. We're particularly excited about the reconstruction work that is taking place on the bunkers.’

Set next to the Mediterranean on Sicily's south coast, Verdura's three links-style courses have been built to the highest specifications, with starting times arranged at 12-minute intervals to ensure free-flowing play. Five sets of tees make the courses playable for golfers of all abilities.

Complementing its golf courses are extensive practice facilities including a double-ended driving range and a golf academy. The resort also has six tennis courts, a two-tiered infinity swimming pool, a gym, and a spa.
