Golf in Tuscany
1 hour drive from the villa
If you are staying at Il Colombaio di Montebenichi and you like to golf then you definitely must keep on reading. I have found that often time, friends and customers alike, ask about the possibility of playing golf in Tuscany. We have now created a brief description of the golf resorts and golf courses that can be easily reached while staying at Villa Il Colombaio in Montebenichi.
Following is a list of 18 hole golf resorts or golf clubs that you can reach with less than one hour drive. There are several other 9 hole run alternatives nearby, but we specifically focused only on full resorts or golf clubs. We hope you find this classification useful to plan your vacation or to enjoy it while you are staying at our Tuscan villa!

description: The striking characteristic about this golf course is the fact that historically it was the park and garden of the Villa dei Medici. The ancient walls that surround the villa serve as an external borderline for the golf course. The course is well kept throughout the seasons. Having been part of a historical villa, the course has old trees particularly along holes 10 to 13, and quite challenging water hazards, particularly in hole 18.
The pro-shop albeit small has everything you might need and a modern driving range close to hole 1 is ideal for practicing. Overall a uniquely Tuscan golf course well managed and worth your time getting there.
MANZANO GOLF RESORT (30 minute drive)
run: 18 holes
description: Manzano Golf Resort covering 100 hectares including 18 holes will be the first golf resort in Cortona designed by Gary Player Design and including not only a four star luxury hotel with 40 rooms and 36 units but is actually selling exclusive villas under the fractional ownership model on the resort.
