A snapshot of Verdura Resort

Rocco Forte Hotels

Verdura Resort’s award-winning golf courses have been shown in a glorious new light by a new set of images taken by renowned English photographer and videographer James Hogg.

Hogg, a specialist in drone photography, spent three days on site capturing the resort’s acclaimed Kyle Phillips-designed East and West layouts from a range of new angles, including an array of breathtaking shots taken from high above the Mediterranean.

The recent changes have seen a number of new features added and modifications made to the routing of both courses. The reordering of hole numbers has allowed for the restoration of former favourite holes and brings exciting new additions, while the planting of fescue grasses throughout the courses added definition to the golfing experience.
