Golf Nazionale SSD, Sutri, Italy





Considered by many one of the toughest and most challenging golf courses in Italy, Golf Nazionale is also recognized as one of the best courses in continental Europe.

Formerly known as La Querce Golf Club (The Oaks in english), is located near the little town of Sutri, just 30 miles north of Rome, in the beautiful Lazio countryside setting.
Designed by Jim Fazio, with the help of the italian architect David Mezzacane, Golf Nazionale follows the natural contours of the hilly terrain of the area. 18 great holes, some of them with marvelous panoramas, featuring elevation changes, forced carries, deep rough, undulated greens, numerous strategically placed bunkers, and several water hazards.
With a course rating of 73,8 and a slope of 145 from the back tees, Golf Nazionale is a true test of target golf even for the most skilled golfer.
Opened in 1990, it hosted the 1991 World Cup of Golf. And since then, numerous national and european tournaments.
Golf Nazionale is home of the Italian Golf Federation and the National Golf School and it's not a coincidence the golf course is venue of the yearly selection to became a golf pro member of the PGAI (Professional Golfer's Association of Italy).

Since last year an intensive program of renovation of the fairways and the greens is taking place. Last summer a new Bermuda Patriot grass has been planted on the front 9 holes fairways  using a new system called "Erbavoglio Hi Turf" while for the greens bentgrass Penn A4 have been used. Works on the back 9 will take place next summer 2013.

If you'll be a planning a golf vacation in Rome, Golf Nazionale is absolutely a must play.

And you are looking for a place to stay in the area a pretty guest house with 23 rooms adjacent to the golf club is available for both members and guests.


GN has always been one of may favorite courses, an example, for its accurate management and meticulous maintenance, several italian golf courses should follow.
