Italy's Best Golf Course

Championship Sicilian Links

Verdura Resort presents a golf experience unlike any other. Our links style courses, designed by Kyle Phillips, use the natural green contours of the landscape and are lined with orange and olive groves. Warmed by the Mediterranean sun and refreshed by the sea breeze, the courses are free from any buildings, offering uninterrupted views of the azure waters from the undulating greens.

Home of the European Tour’s Rocco Forte Sicilian Open, Verdura provides golf on a grand scale, with the personal service and attention to detail more usually associated with a private club. Designed to challenge golfers of all levels, the courses are built on spectacular playing surfaces to provide golfing conditions of the highest level.

Golf Courses

"Italy's No.1 Golf Course"

Test your game at our distinguished championship golf courses, shaped by renowned architect Kyle Phillips. Seamlessly blending with the Sicilian coastal landscape, each hole presents a gorgeous view of the Mediterranean Sea. Our two 18-hole courses highlight Phillips' aptitude for engaging, high-quality design.

The Verdura Shore, a previous host to the Sicilian and European tour events, and the Verdura Links, acknowledged by Today’s Golfer as the best in Italy and as one of Europe's finest. Whether you’re an established golfer or a beginner keen to refine your skills on our Verdura Executive nine hole Par 3, Verdura's courses offer a distinctive golfing experience, pairing challenge with scenic grandeur and the expert guidance of our PGA professionals.

Verdura Links

PAR 73 - 6763 METRES / 7396 YARDS

Recently redesigned under the vigilant oversight of original course architect, Kyle Phillips, the Verdura Links offers a distinctive links experience reminiscent of Scottish coastal courses. The backdrop of the beach and gently breaking waves add a serene charm.

Each hole presents a unique test of skill and strategy. On every green, the player must read the slopes carefully and precisely to prevent the score from being adversely affected. Shots to the green test your ability to control the amount of ball roll when a running shot is needed. Demanding holes include the fifth, a par 4 in which the player must pay close attention to avoid ending up in the water. Away from the water hazards and tricky bunkers, sea views demand your attention.

Verdura Shore

PAR 70 - 6547 METRES / 7160 YARDS

The Verdura Shore starts off far from easy, challenging golfers with three demanding par 4s, before the first of five accuracy-testing par 3s. The front nine ascends through the estate, then descends towards the mesmerising Mediterranean on the back nine. Skilful putting and strategic planning are required throughout.

Particular attention to wind direction and strength is essential, especially on the final holes that offer panoramic ocean vistas. The close of the round delivers a dramatic flourish, with the concluding holes hugging the stunning coastline.

Notable challenges include the fifth, a long par 5 with multiple bunkers. The sixth, a long par 4 requiring a strategic tee shot. The sixteenth, a demanding dog-leg par 4, and the eighteenth, a sea-adjacent par 4, each require precision and caution for a rewarding round.
