Ugolino 18 holes golf and pool club
Built in 1934 (designed by Cecil Blandford and Peter Gannon), at the edge of the beautiful Chianti countryside.
The natural contours of the Chianti slopes produce an outstanding course, threaded through the vines, olive trees, maritime pines and broom. The course is not long, but demands a high degree of skill. The greens are small and well defended by bunkers. The sloping fairways also present a great challenge … all this in a landscape of great natural beauty.
There is a Club House, Swimming pool and Restaurant.
