The road to Montecatini Golf brings some challenges for older cars, especially camper vans. The road is narrow and steep and not maintained at all. After you saw the last sign to the golf course you absolutely don´t believe you´re on the right way, but you are! And then, there it is, quiet, peaceful and well hidden. The golf course of Montecatini Golf (but don’t get confused, because it is located near Monsummano Terme).
There is a very good putting green in front of the clubhouse/ restaurant. You can look out over the first holes of the course. Very beautiful views over the Tuscany hills. The driving range is on the other side of the club house, near hole 10.
The course starts with a par 4 of almost 300 meters. It´s heading down hill but it has a wide fairway, so a good and not too difficult one to play. The second one is up hill again and that´s the story of this course, a lot of climbing and descending hills, so after 9 holes we feel like we really did some sports. This was also related to the beautiful and warm weather of this day. The track is nearly 6000 meters and contains natural water obstacles, which play a role in five of the eighteen holes. And water is not the only obstacle you will encounter; there are high trees, vegetations, and some tricky out of bounds. Hole three is said to be one of the most difficult of the course, a Par 4 of a bit more than 300 meters. A left dogleg with water on the right and three bunkers on the fairway.
The first 9 holes are very interesting and challenging, because there are a lot of obstacles or not foreseen changes in the course. Besides the tricky 10th and 18th hole (because you have to cross the lake) the second 9 are easy compared to the first 9.
