Ugolino Golf Club is the oldest club in Italy at more than 130 years old. Set up by British golfers in 1889 Ugolino moved to its current location in 1934. It’s a beautiful, stylish venue as you would expect.

Designed by Cecil Blandford and Peter Gannon,  Ugolino uses the natural contours of the Chianti slopes as it threads through vines, olive trees, pines and broom. The greens are small are well defended by bunkers. Although fairly short by modern standards the golf course requires skilful play.

In 2009 Ugolino was awarded the Gold Medal for sporting achievement in recognition of its impressive history.  It has hosted numerous international competitions and members over the years have included three members of the Hall of Fame of Italian Golf,  Baldovino Dassu, Federica Dassu and Franco Rosi.

Enjoy a glass of Chianti in the clubhouse afterwards while you absorb the amazing atmosphere. Ten miles south of Florence.
