A Peek Inside Italy’s Only Private Golf Club

The international golf world is embracing Italy’s only private 18 hole golf club. The Club at Castiglion del Bosco, Tuscany, is reserved exclusively for Members and Resident Guests of Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco.

The golf course is one of the finest private courses in Europe and the only Continental European design of Champion golfer Tom Weiskopf. The former British Open winner drew his design inspiration from ‘Rows of mature Cypress trees, dramatic elevation changes and natural water hazards.’ The course’s 13th hole is 685 yards, making it the longest Par 5 in Europe.

Weiskopf’s Tuscan masterpiece is exquisitely blended into the soft curves and contours of the estate’s rolling hills and valleys with panoramic views across the Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO protected landscape.


Located in Montalcino, Tuscany, in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Val d’Orcia, Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco is set within a 5,000-acre 800-year-old Italian estate and offers guests some of the most stunning landscapes in Italy.  Below is topline info on the course:
