Parco di Roma Golf & Country Club, Rome, Italy

Realized by Pete Dye's youngest son, P.B. Dye, Parco di Roma golf course is one of the most challenging golf courses you can play in the city of Rome (CR 76.3 SR 140).  Reaching a total length of 7040 yds from the tips, the course is even longer considering the almost not-walkable distance you have between some of of the holes.
This 18s are a part of a master-plan project that consists on 54 holes. Once the final project will be completed some of the holes of the first course will be assigned to second and third course, and that explains why you'll find yourself playing on different environments. Holes #1 #16 #17 #18 are the lowest of the course, near the clubhouse, flat with no elevation changes, surrounded by trees and a small lake interest the final two holes. Holes #2 to #15 are designed on the highest points of the property on an open plateau, with dramatic elevation changes, ravines to carry with your first or second shot and many blind shots.
From the higher elevations you can enjoy wonderful panoramas of the city of Rome, including St. Peter's cupola.

Parco di Roma Golf course presents a demanding test for the lower handicap, and an enjoyable experience for the higher handicap.
I loved the practice area: a driving range with more then 50 open bays, a huge putting green, pitching area and a putting course.
