SICILY

VERDURA GOLF RESORT & SPA

five-gold-stars

RESORT OVERVIEW

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.

All rooms have four poster beds, separate walk in shower and deep bath tubs, with gorgeous sun terraces, which open out onto the grass close to the golf course.

Verdura has two amazing Championship golf courses, both designed by Kyle Philips – a celebrated top architect from the USA, who has designed great venues like Kingsbarns in the UK. Both golf courses have a strong links flavour, with 3-4 holes on each running right alongside the sea shore, close enough to feel the sea spray on your face.

There are also some wonderful uphill holes towards the mountains, with stunning vistas to the north, as you climb away from the hotel towards the olive groves. There are no weak holes on either golf course and one cannot say which is the better layout. The holes are well protected by green side and fairway bunkers and there is a decent amount of pot bunkers around the greens, to give it an authentic links feel. There is no doubt that the finishing holes on both courses are superb, close to the ocean! If you watched the European Tour in May 2017, you will recall how tough the course can play, when the wind gets strong.

Watch out for some stunning par three holes close to the sea and some classic par fives also, the backdrops to most holes in all directions are stunning. Pure exhilaration. Enjoy the complimentary practice ground! Buggies are not a must at Verdura and the wildlife is everywhere! In fact this is a paradise for botanists and ornithologists.

Firstly thank you for making all our arrangements so well.  We had a really great holiday at the Verdura.
To answer your enquiries, our flight out was on time very straightforward easy checkin no crowds. The driver was there to meet us easily, very comfortable transfer.
At the resort the staff were very welcoming and everyone wanted to be of assistance.  As we had an early flight, our room was not ready, but it was not a problem as we took lunch by the pool.
Our room had a lovely sea view and patio for relaxing.  Our first night we had terrific thunderstorms, which I gather is quite unusual at this time of year.
The first few days were hot, but extremely windy, it did not worry us as we were on the golf course,  the courses were in excellent condition, we took buggies, although the second day we walked the short 9 hole course as well, as we had been unable to finish our 18 on the first day because of lightening !!   ( they did not charge us for the 9 holes.
We intended to make some trips, but because we had arranged so much golf we didn't ,  our mistake was to make our holiday a week, next time we will definitely do a 10 day break, with our golf interspersed .    The Spa was excellent..........
We ate at all the different restaurants,  probably the fine dining one was the best, no problem there the food was good , although quite pricey !
  Plus things were plenty of water provided at  no extra cost, and no charge for trolleys.
The transfer worked excellently to take us back to the airport, we had a couple of hours delay because of air traffic control radar at
Rome,  but not a problem, we still arrived back in very decent time.
Thank you again for your help, I shall definitely recommend Island Holidays.
Kind Regards,     Adrienne King.

Thank you for your feedback Adrienne. I am delighted that you had a wonderful holiday to Verdura in Sicily. It is certainly one of the finest 36 hole golf & beach resorts on our portfolio and especially impressive from June to September when all the restaurants are functioning at the same time. The golf is pretty much unbeatable and the spa exceptional.
