Il Picciolo Golf Club

Location: Castiglione di Sicilia, Mt Etna
Sleeps: 196
Bedrooms: 98
Features: golf course, club house, SPA
Surroundings: Mt Etna, Taormina, Catania, Syracuse


Il Picciolo Golf Club was the first golf course in Sicily.
Located on the northern slopes of Mt Etna, very close to the small town of Castiglione di Sicilia, the course offers players stunning views of the volcano that dominates every corner, even allowing for the exciting discovery of lava flows.

The Golf Course

The holes, designed in the dark lava eruption remains of 1916, is a project of the architect Luigi Rota Caremoli, the only Italian to be admitted to the British Golf Course Architects, and who has been able to make the best use of the 44 hectares of land hills. The first holes cross the old hazelnut grove, proceeding among groups of broom, forsythia and clumps of daisies up to the area where the volcanic soil becomes the protagonist. The final holes end in front of the clubhouse.
From the terrace of the big pink house, a traditional villa situated on the slopes of the volcano, the view stretches to the top of black lava and the green of the Nebrodi mountains. Recline around the vineyards that make this area famous with the production of a wine that boasts the title of Etna d.o.c..

At Il Picciolo Golf Club you can play all year round: the ground does not freeze in winter and in the summer, at 650 meters altitude and the sea only 30 km away, the heat is not felt as strongly as elsewhere on the island.
Il Picciolo Golf Club also offers 16 comfortable rooms at La Foresteria.
