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. 

A host of top international professionals will once again descend on the 5 star Resort in the Maremma region for what is undoubtedly one of the most luxurious and much-awaited events on the schedule where past winners have included former Ryder Cup Captain Sam Torrance and Clark Dennis – who won back-to-back titles in 2017 and 2018.

 

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.

The Resort offers 73 design rooms and luxury villas with spectacular views of the golf course and the Tuscan panorama, with exclusive services at guests’ fingertips for a stay that is all about privacy and relaxation.
The golf course, the driving range, the padel and tennis courts, the five-a-side football pitch, the swimming pools and jogging paths are available for guests to enjoy a stay immersed in nature and well-being. The Espace Wellness Centre also has private cabins for exclusive face and body treatments, indoor pools, a sauna and a gym.
Finally, the range of services is completed by the Club House Restaurant and the Dama Dama Restaurant, where Chef Emiliano Lombardelli delights guests with an haute-cuisine menu rich in traditions and flavours.
To better enjoy the experience of the Open, the Argentario PGA National Golf Academy offers the specialized knowledge of its professionals and the advanced TrackMan IIIe and Capto technology, available to both experienced golfers and beginners who want to approach this sport full of charm and tradition.
