Corsica: Golf Activity Holiday

A little slice of heaven (out of peak season)

If you have a passion for golf then on the island of Corsica the spectacular Golf de Spérone is a must. The course is located on a breathtaking site at the southern tip of Corsica overlooking the Mediterranean. The golf course is the centrepiece of an attractive residential and resort community, which features sleek, modern glass and wood villas. The surrounding area is the medieval fortress town of Bonifacio. Recognised as one of Europe's best golf courses, this 18-hole course really does have something special to offer with its scenic views. This course regularly gets in to the top 100 of Golf World's best. The course combines 12 inland holes with gorse and heather with six stunning holes along the coast and seaside cliffs. This is a spectacular setting to enjoy the game. From the course it’s possible to see glittering views of the Mediterranean, the Lavezzi Islands and even the distant peaks of Sardinia. Spérone is a test for the best golfers with its wide fairways and the most challenging section of the course is when playing off the back of the hilly areas or when the wind blows. If your handicap is not yet single figures, the course owners suggest that you play off the forward tees and simply admire the design and scenery. Golf lessons are available, equipment can be rented and the Spérone hilltop clubhouse is also reputed for being a great pre or post game treat. Corsica has only one 18 hole course but there are 9-hole golf courses, and Golf de Spérone can be perfectly combined with another 18 hole at the Pevero Golf Club inSardinia. Situated on the Costa Smeralda, at the northern tip of the island, Pevero is a short ferry crossing across the Bonifacio Strait which separates Corsica from Sardinia. Golfing in Corsica can be combined with other sports such as diving, snorkelling, cycling or tennis. Or if golf is strenuous enough simply enjoy the stunning beaches and countryside.
