Verdura resort is in the south west of Sicily, near the large seaside town of Sciacca, it is only practical to access the resort by flying into Palermo. The driving time from Palermo airport is 75-80 minutes. The resort lies in a secluded location, right next to the Mediterranean with the golf courses stretching up from the sea up the hillside. The entrance road to Verdura is a long drive downhill from the main road, which take about 5 minutes and you drive right through the golf courses, which gives you an appetite to play on arrival.
The Verdura Resort has recently hosted the European Tour in May 2017, which was a resounding success, the players really enjoyed the challenge of playing links golf, with the proximity of the ocean, playing a clever combo of both West and East courses.
The main highlights of the resort are the beach, which has an area of fine white sand, with some water sport facilities, the excellent spa and outdoor Jacuzzis, which face the golf course and the restaurants and sun terraces, which face the ocean. The sunsets at Verdura are sensational all year round. Sicilian cuisine is fresh and refined and no better than at Verdura. Make sure you try some of the wines from Sicily, which come from grapes grown on hillsides of Mount Etna, giving a unique flavour, which tickles the palate. The seafood and fish at Verdura is first class, all catches coming from the fishing harbour at Sciacca, just 15 minutes away.
The main attraction of Verdura however, are the golf courses, the West and East courses are designed by Kyle Philips and are arguably the finest 36 hole complex on the Mediterranean.
Directors Tip – Book on bed & breakfast basis and enjoy a few nights eating in the hotel, but also make sure you explore the restaurants in Sciacca town and by the harbour side.
