The Golf Courses

Marco Simone (2023 Ryder Cup Course)

In 2018, a redesign of Marco Simone Golf & Country Club was led by European Golf Design in cooperation with Tom Fazio II. The back nine was completed and reopened in October 2020 before the full 18 holes were officially completed in March 2021.

In addition, the clubhouse and practice ground has undergone further renovation which will was completed in 2022.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club, approximately 25 minutes’ drive from Rome, offers an exciting course lay-out – perfect for our Pro-Am and the dramatic match play for which the Ryder Cup is renowned – with water hazards throughout providing the risk and reward shots which will captivate golf fans for the Ryder Cup as well as the 2023 Italian Open which will take place there from May 4th -7th, 2023.

A visually appealing lay-out is combined with the beautiful natural surroundings, as well as the art and culture and the historical gems that Rome has to offer. The 1,000-year-old tower of Marco Simone’s castle greets players on the first hole, while there are also views of St Peter’s Basilica from numerous tees around the course.

Guy Kinnings, the European Tour group’s Deputy Chief Executive, Ryder Cup Director and Chief Commercial Officer, said: “We look forward to going to Rome for the first time. Italy has never had the Ryder Cup before and it is an incredible opportunity.

Golf Nazionale 

Formerly known as Golf Club Le Querce, Golf Nazionale is situated approximately 60 kilometres to the northwest of Rome and this beautiful course is set in 60 hectares of delightful undulating land. With fairways flanked by stately oaks it’s not surprising to note that the club was known as “The Oaks” in English.

Golf Nazionale opened for play in 1990 and Jim Fazio, nephew of the great George Fazio, designed the course with a little help from Italian David Mezzacane. This is certainly a course from the amazing Fazio stable, which was set up to house the Italian Golf Federation.

Golf Nazionale, will host the Italian Challenge Tour event in July and will be in fabulous condition as it’s also due to host the 2023 Junior Ryder Cup just weeks after our Pro-Am

Grand Hotel Palatino – Just steps from the Colosseum

Our hotel for the Pro-Am is the Grand Hotel Palatino Roma which is immersed in the beauties of the eternal city, in Via Cavour, an important Via of Rione Monti district. It offers modern rooms and suites, a refined restaurant and business facilities.

Its extraordinary position, located in front of the famous Borgia staircase, allows you to quickly reach the capital’s main points of interest, such as the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Spanish Steps, Colle Oppio, Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore as well as Termini Station and not forgetting the convenient Metro line B ‘Cavour’ stop, a short walking distance from the hotel, allowing you to easily reach all parts of the city.
