Your chance to win a trip to La Bagnaia Golf & Spa Resort in Tuscany and two rounds of golf at Royal Golf La Bagnaia, an IMG Prestige Club
Italy’s reputation as a golf destination has grown rapidly in recent years, and the announcement that the 2022 Ryder Cup will be heading to Rome has given its golf facilities a further boost.
One such course is the stunning Royal Golf La Bagnaia, part of the La Bagnaia Golf & Spa Resort in Siena, Tuscany.
Surrounded by the beautiful Sienese countryside, La Bagnaia is a tranquil oasis set against a landscape scattered with charming medieval hamlets and towns.
The course, designed by the award-winning architect Robert Trent Jones Jnr, opened in 2009. It runs over the rolling Siena hills, offering undulating fairways and sweeping fescue roughs.
Expansive practice facilities include a short game and pitch-and-putt area, and the clubhouse – a painstakingly restored Tuscan farmhouse – overlooks the 18th green, providing golfers with an authentic and luxurious place to relax and enjoy the views towards ancient Siena while sampling the finest Tuscan ingredients and produce.
Spread over 1,100 hectares, the upscale Curio by Hilton hotel has a village-like feel, divided across a number of buildings and featuring two main ‘hamlets’ – Borgo Bagnaia and Borgo Filetta. The resort includes the luxurious Buddha Spa by Clarins and a range of facilities for leisure and business travellers, including two restaurants and two bars, three swimming pools, 12 treatment rooms, a tennis court and conference rooms for nearly 1,000 delegates.
The resort is close to international airports, with excellent car, bus and rail links. It is 95km from Florence Peretola Airport and 130km from Pisa International Airport, both of which provide regular domestic and international flights.
Siena-Ampugnano Airport is only 11km away, while Siena’s main railway station is 30km from the resort and caters for national rail services. The stunning medieval Siena is easily accessible by car and well worth at least a day trip.
La Bagnaia is also part of IMG Prestige, an elite network of premier golf properties and partners from across the world which have a close association with IMG.
