Owner description: An extraordinary sea view and challenging golf course designed by Robeert Trent Jones - par 72 - Costa Smeralda - Home of the 1978 Italian Open.
Reviewed 23 June 2016

My husband and I played a couple of rounds here in early June. Plenty of players walk but there are some long gaps between greens and tees so we hired a buggy. There are plenty of water stops and two bathrooms. The course is spectacular and there are some stunning views over the sea on some holes. The vibe is quite relaxed; I only paid for and played 9 holes on our second round and no one fussed about me bringing my clubs back to the club house after the first 9 holes. The changing rooms are well equipped and locker keys and towels can be picked up from the receptionist. The restaurant offers lovely pasta dishes which can be eaten on the terrace overlooking the practice area. Overall, a lovely course to play.

Nestled between two beautiful bays in Costa Smeralda on the island of Sardinia is an excellent Robert Trent Jones designed course. Built in the early 70s, it has been designed following the contour of the terrain permitting extraordinary views and adding levels of unexpected difficulty.

Positives-
- Location-location-location- views to die for
- Mixture of challenging holes and others that offer good birdie opportunities
- Good practice facilities- putting green and driving range
- The club house is very good with locker rooms, showers, a pool and good restaurant for an after round meal
- Generally, well maintained

A few “heads-up”

- The golf course is located in a resort area so expect to pay top dollar
- The course can be walked with relatively proximate green to tee transfers but the hilly terrain may be a little tiring with the heat
- The is no (potable) water on the course so make sure you stay hydrated
- Bring enough golf balls … more on that later
- If the wind blows … the course changes character … from tough to incredibly difficult

Course design and layout- definitely 5 stars

The beauty of RTJ courses is that he is a master at having the topography and nature embrace the 18 holes that he designs. Located on a promontory between two bays, the land has a superb location with spectacular views on both the front and back nine. While not particularly long from the back tees (6,700 yards), you can rest assured that if the wind picks up … it spells real trouble.

As you conclude the first two holes, easy warm up par 4s, you wonder what’s all the fuss about this course. The stone sphinx that adorns the back of the 2nd hole and bids you farewell as you leave the green is indeed an omen of things to come … if you do not correctly answer its riddle.

The third hole is a par 5 with a blind tee shot. The low lying Sardinian vegetation accompanying both sides of both roughs leaves no margin for errant shots. A well placed drive and second shot are required. Once you reach the green, the symphony of views commences from here and accompanies you for the next five holes.

The combination of back-to-back par 3s and 4s from the forth to the eight holes will demand additional accuracy from your shots in order to make a string of pars left alone a birdie. Fortunately, you have a short par 5 on the 9th hole to make you feel good concluding the front nine holes.

The back nine starts with a par 3 10th with a great view of the other side of the bay, Cala di Volpe. The sequence of a par 5 11th hole and two tough par 4s on the 12th and 13th require you to stay focused on your game and minimize errors.

Clearly the level of difficulty has increased substantially and as recompense to your suffering, you are gifted some of the most spectacular views from the Tavolara Island to a closer view of Cala di Volpe which is adorned by a string of yachts moored in the bay like a string a Christmas lights on a tree. In fact, the tee of the 16th hole is very famous as it has the back drop for a James Bond movie.

A breath-taking back nine holes that ranks as high in beauty as it does in difficulty.

Conditions- 4 stars

The course was in surprisingly good conditions considering that this part of Sardinia is arid and there can be periods of extended drought. There were areas of required repair that appear to have been torn up by the wild boar. The greens were in good condition a little hard and slower in pace than I expected.

Price- 2.5 stars

There is no question that the course is expensive. So budget accordingly so that you can enjoy the day. At 175 euro, around USD 200, it includes range balls, greens fee and a cart. A nice lunch after the round will put you back another 40.

Yet, once you paid the greens fee, you have access to a very nice locker room and a great pool where you can soak up some more magnificent views.

Pace of Play- 4 stars

The pace of play was excellent with a round a 4:15. Considering the course layout, it was very good time. We actually let someone through who was lightning fast.

Staff- 4 stars

All the staff of the club was very friendly and welcoming even if we were not members. The restaurant may be under different management since the service was not as polished and slow.

In summary, I enjoyed the course very much knowing that I always have an opportunity to play better!

What a nice golf course, beautifull design. Tourism in this regio is concentrated in a very little period, half july to end of august. We were able to play in june at 8.30 every morning, 3 hrs 15 min with two low hcps, faboulous. Fantastick design with only houses on two holes, 9 and 18. All other holes pure nature, a lot of them on their own. Very narrow design, but when the wind is not blowing, we were able to play our hcps. Beautifull vieuws and all staff very friendly. A must visit!

A good golf golf that doesn't live up to its online reputation. Worth playing though as it's not too expensive. Staff very friendly and helpful. Some very good holes and some not so good.
Give it ago.
