About this holiday

The largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily offers everything you could hope for from a relaxing golf holiday. Its cultural diversity makes it a truly fascinating place to visit, having been invaded or occupied by numerous civilisations over thousands of years, each leaving its mark on the landscape and architecture.

Il Picciolo Golf Club

On the slopes of Mount Etna in an unrivalled location the Il Picciolo Golf Club Is the first 18-hole 72-par course to be built in Sicily. Opened in 1989 and designed by the renowned architect Luigi Rota Caremoli who is the only Italian to be a member of the Association of British Golf Course Architect. The challenging holes on this superb course are fashioned from the characteristic lava stone of Mount Etna. It covers 5,870m and offers a driving range and putting and pitching green. The course played host to the Ladies Italian Open for three years between 1995 and 1997 and again in 2011. The European Senior Open was also held here in 2010.

  • 18 holes, 5870 metres, Par 72

Useful Information

Transfer Time
The transfer time from Catania Airport to the Hotel is approximately 1 hour, depending on weather and traffic.

Golfing Schedule
4 rounds of organised golf at the Il Picciolo Golf Club.

Golf Handicaps
This trip is for golfers with a handicap of 36 or lower for ladies and 28 or lower for gentlemen. Please advise our Reservations team of your handicap at the time of booking, and if you have a certificate please ensure you take it with you on the trip. This enables the Tour Leader to assess everyone’s ability, so that rounds and competitions can be organised fairly.

If you are uncertain about these requirements please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to advise you.

Golf Club Insurance
Clients will most probably find that their golf clubs are covered on their household insurance policy. Most policies cover a single item such as golf clubs for a period out of the country. However, clients should make very sure that they do have cover. If not, Solo’s Holidays insurance includes cover for golf clubs and bag.

Buggy, Trolley & Club Hire
Most golf clubs have these items available for hire, however this is not always the case, so clients would be advised to check with us beforehand if they have any specific requirements.

Golf Footwear
Golf shoes with soft spikes are required.

Carriage of Clubs
We advise you to use a light golf bag when packing your clubs. We suggest you wrap a towel round the neck of the clubs to protect them and stop them rattling around whilst in transit. It is also important to then place the bag and clubs in an outer carrying bag, which can be purchased from any good golf shop.

What to Wear
Golf attire during the day. We suggest smart casual for the evenings.

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €15.00 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate Ϻdd on.

Passports and visas
A full 10-year passport is required, valid for the duration of your stay. Holders of a British passport do not require a visa.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the correct visa, a valid passport and any other travel documents for your holiday. All information provided relates to British citizens who hold or are entitled to apply for a British passport. For the most up-to-date visa information please visit; Italy Foreign Advice

If you are not a British citizen and do not hold a British passport, you must make your own enquiries as to the applicable requirements. Alternatively, you can apply for your Visa with our preferred partner the Travel Visa company by selecting the following link; Travel Visa Company.
