Leading golf architect, Kyle Phillips, has created two impressive links style championship courses at the Verdura resort.

Phillips has done a wonderful job with this unique opportunity to set new standards for a links experience in a climate rather warmer than the traditional British coastal courses. Despite both tracks being built to the same standard, and occupying similar ground, the East and West courses provide alternate journeys for golfers to enjoy. Both start beside an internal practice range, the West has a more out and back arrangement with a long stretch of consecutive holes on the front nine but a stirring four hole seaside finale. The East, by contrast, enjoys a two loop routing that changes direction more frequently, its 18th hole is played right alongside the cliffs but the rest of the closing stretch is set on higher, tumbling ground.

Verdura Golf & Spa Resort benefits from nearly 2 kilometres of beach frontage and it would have been easy to build one course along the coastline and have the other away from the sea. There was plenty of natural undulation through the deceptively spacious interior, however, and Phillips wisely chose to spread the best holes and the best terrain across both courses, giving each a tremendous seaside closing run and an exciting central area that touches the blue waters of the Mediterranean.

Green fees are approx. £95 for 18 holes, or £140 for 36 holes.

Another idea for combining golf and spa - although not at one resort - is Marrakech, where 3 superb new courses have recently opened.  See golf in Marrakech

We think that the world's best golf and spa destinaton is Mauritius, with its exceptional choice of fantastic resorts.  It's a long flight but it's pretty much in the same time zone as Europe, so no jet lag.
