Golf in Italy

Currently the Italian Golf Federation is joined by more then 225 clubs and 90,000 golfers. This means that finding an Italian property for sale near a golf resort is relatively easy.
Golf is a very modern game and yet maybe it is one of the most ancient. The love for nature,for the environment and for natural landscapes, today unites in the name of Golf more than 60 million people in the world, overcoming barriers of all kinds. Golf in Italy most likely started with the Romans. They used to play this sport, the "paganica", with a stick and a leather ball stuffed with feathers. Ancestors of Golf are also the English "cambuca" of the 13th and 14th century, the "jeu de mail" in France, the "Het kolven" in the Netherlands. Golf as we know it today is played in magnificent landscapes dotted with thousands of natural hazards.
