For our golfing guests, located 10 minutes from Podere Le Cave is Golf Ugolino. The oldest course in Tuscany and one of the oldest in Italy, Golf Ugolino is a natural course built in 1934 in the Chianti hills and it exploits at best the natural characteristics of the Tuscan landscape: the cypress trees and olive trees, the slopes that curve and follow the magnificent scenery, the small greens which are often very well-defended. The course is a par 72, 6,278 yard (5,741 meters) designed by British architects Blandford and Gannon and was the site of the 1983 Italian Open, won by Bernard Langer in a play-off against Seve Ballesteros. For tee times and more information visit the Golf Ugolino website.
