Designed by Kyle Phillips, our three magnificent courses will inspire the novice player and set a challenge for the most experienced.
Kyle, famous for his designs of links courses such as Kingsbarns Golf Links in Scotland, has created two 18-hole championship golf courses and a nine-hole par-3 course at Verdura. Every hole offers sweeping views of the Mediterranean Sea, within an amphitheatre of Sicilian mountains. The two 18-hole courses, The East and The West, challenge golfers of all abilities and have five tee positions on each hole. A nine-hole par-3 appeals to novices and juniors, as do the first-rate practice and teaching facilities. This is golf on a grand scale, with the personal service and attention of a private club.
The East Course
Our undulating East Course provides a truly memorable round of golf. Early highlights include the short par four 3rd and the early water holes at the 5th and 6th, each with stunning outlooks. From the 13th onwards, the course turns seaward, plummeting and swooping across glorious links terrain. The best is saved for last, with the penultimate hole rising gently into the foot of a Sicilian hillside. The 18th is a fabulous par four closer, crashing from an elevated tee along the craggy coastline.
The West Course
The beachside holes are the star attraction on our beautiful West Course. The sparkling Mediterranean Sea first comes into view at the 8th and 9th, before returning for a four-hole encore at the 15th. It’s these final four holes, with their uninterrupted views, that steal the show. The 16th and 18th are beautiful two-shotters, while the 15th and 17th are dominated by watery backdrops. The 18th brings you home right along the shoreline, providing a rousing finish to an unforgettable round.
