 PEVERO GOLF CLUB (North Sardinia, Costa Smeralda)

Pevero Golf Club: an extraordinary position golf course.
Everything is special starting from the design by Robert Trent Jones, who, at the beginning of the Seventies (in 1978, Pevero Golf Club hosted the renowned Italian Open), implemented a very exclusive course scattered with terrible hazards created by nature itself more than by man and with a strong wind often blowing across it. Before, the whole area between Cala di Volpe and Golfo del Pevero was completely covered by the typical Mediterranean bushes, by rocks and natural ponds; it would have been a shame if he had destroyed this beauty. So, he have just removed some areas where the vegetation was too thick.  The Pevero is considered one of the most beautiful courses in the world, is second to none thanks to the spectacular for eshortenings taken from the magnificent Costa Smeralda. Just an hour or so by air from the main cities of continental Europe, Pevero Golf Club is surrounded by rocks and natural pools, and is perfumed with the aromas of juniper and myrtle released by the lush Mediterranean maquis. The vibrant green colour of the course appears to merge with the emerald-colored backdrop of the sea. A truly unique location for a great round of golf. The holes are located along an extraordinary course where the mistral – the famous north wind, which has sculpted the local rock formations – increases the difficulty of playing a great shot. Both the Club House and the Golf Houses are designed by Riccardo Bonicatti, in a perfect harmony with the whole natural contest: an high quality of buildings and facilities correspond to new equipments, new golf cart, a bar on the fairways and the best computer for learning golf. Golf seminaries are also very useful in order to invite young people to play this sport.

One of the finest golf courses in Italy, a venue for prestigious competitions.The Is Molas golf course is one of the most famous in Italy, and has been the benchmark for this sport in Sardinia for over thirty years.
Thanks to the proximity of the sea and the protection of the surrounding hills the locality of Is Molas enjoys a unique microclimate, mild and particularly favourable for golf all year round: the temperature reaches 20 degrees C at the beginning of the spring, rises to over 30 in summer and even in December and January can easily exceed 15 degrees.
The golf course at Is Molas was the first in Sardinia and with its twenty-seven holes is the largest on the island.
The eighteen holes of the championship course have been created out of a collaboration between the Cotton, Pennink & Partners studio and Piero Mancinelli. The greens and bunkers are American in size and style, while the fairways are broad enough to forgive a slice. The Is Molas championship course is considered one of the most technically satisfying and spectacular courses not just in Italy, but in the whole of the Mediterranean area. It has staged many prestigious competitions, including four Italian Opens and a European Volvo Masters.
The nine holes of the Yellow Course, the most difficult to play, have been laid out by Franco Piras, Gary Player Design’s representative in Italy. The presence, along the course, of all the typical species of Sardinia’s native flora and the Mediterranean macchia makes the Is Molas Golf Club a beautiful garden with a view of the sea.
The Club House is elegant and well-equipped: there is a bar with a panoramic terrace, a pro shop and the Ristorante Is Molas, open at lunchtime and for special occasions, which offers a creative Mediterranean cuisine based on local Sardinian products.
