The Senior Italian Open on the Legends Tour returns to the Argentario Golf Club located at the Argentario Golf & Wellness Resort in Tuscany later this month from 21 to 23 October.
Those in action this year include a host of familiar legends of the game including New Zealand’s Michael Campbell, former US Open champion, England’s Barry Lane, winner of five European Tour events, past Open Champion Paul Lawrie of Scotland and Italy’s very own Costantino Rocca and Peppo Canonica whilst defending champion James Kingston of South Africa also joins the impressive line-up. Ireland will be represented by Philip Walton, Brendan McGovern and Mark McNulty.
Located in Porto Ercole on the Monte Argentario promontory, the Argentario Golf Club is one of the country’s top courses and, testament to its quality, was awarded PGA National Italy status by the Professional Golfers’ Association in 2019.
The championship layout will deliver a stern test for players with narrow, tree-lined fairways, small greens and water hazards, adding to the layout’s technical difficulty where a player’s accuracy will need to come to the fore.
Alongside the staging of this prestigious event, a number of amateurs will be able to play in the Championship Pro-Am on 20 October as well as a special 36-hole competition on 21 and 22 October, in which every amateur will be able to accompany two professionals.
For those looking to stay on the golf course during the Senior Italian Open, the Argentario Golf & Wellness Resort offers packages for stays from two to five nights, including breakfast, registration for the golf competitions, welcome dinner and awards ceremony and entrance to the wellness centre.
