TERRE DEI CONSOLI - 25th & 26th August -
Developed by the Leonardo Caltagirone Group, the 18-hole championship course at the Terre Dei Consoli Golf Club is located within an enterprising residential resort
which lies to the north of the capital and it´s a Robert Trent Jones Jnr design that first opened its doors to golfers in 2011.
The name Terre dei Consoli refers to a territory that was considered precious to Roman Consuls during the days of the Roman Empire and Via Francigena, the historical pilgrim route from France to Rome, cuts across the course behind the par five 8th hole.
Unusually for a modern layout, the course is set with an out-and-back routing as a result of this the 9th hole is located furthest from the clubhouse. With three par
five (including back-to-back three-shotters at holes 7 and 8) and only one short hole on the front nine, par is set at 38 for the outward half.
On the way home, three short holes and two par fives set par for the back nice at 35. The signature hole is regarded as the 150-yard 17th, played to an island green, but the 480-yard, downhill 15th- where a severely contoured green sits behind a small creek – also as much to commend it.
"It will be a great pleasure to host the Long Drivers European Tour this year.
When the famous architect Robert Trent Jones II, design Terre dei Consoli, his mission was to create not only one of the best courses in Italy, but the longest (7.600 yards) and “flexible” 18 holes in Europe.
I’m quite sure that all the participants will be very happy to compete here as well as the unique practice facilities with its academy.
I hope that all the contenders of the LDET will relax in our villas and apartments and they’d spend a day by discovering the Eternal City. Me and my staff are waiting for you" said Ascanio Pacelli, Certified Club Manager of Terre dei Consoli.
