As if there were not enough reasons to visit Puglia already, a luxury golf course is fully integrated into Puglia’s collection of delights.
The San Domenico golf club at Borgo Egnazia was designed and created by the European Golf Design of London (the PGA’s design company headed by Jeremy Slessor and signed by architect Andy Haggar).
It’s situated between the ancient city of Egnathia (5thC B.C.) and the Savelletri marina. And no matter where you stand on the luxurious golf course, the Adriatic Sea is always in view to grace you sight, and inspire your swing.

As you would expect of an international golf course, it meets the strictest standards (USGA’s / PGA standards) and the beauty is irresistible to even those who have never hit a ball.
The Puglia golfing backdrop
Puglia is probably best known for producing up to 40% of the total olive oil in Italy. On the golf course, centenarian olive trees adorn its edges adding a beautiful local identity to the golf courses.
The climate is mild, and Puglia’s salty dry air is more soothing than you could possibly imagine, caressing your face and feathering your hair as you lope around the course. This is why it is so satisfying and refreshing to play golf in Puglia all year round.
The Borgo Egnazia golf course is so enticing. The design is poetic and challenging. And it speaks to the inner competitive spirit of professionals and amateur golfers alike. It’s definitely not an easy ride, and you will fight with it every day in a quest to master the fairways and greens.
The make-up of the Borgo Egnazia golf course
The greens of the San Domenico golf course are expansive. Bermuda grass is used for the fairway while Festuca is used for the roughs. The golf course is built to deceive the unsuspecting. The absence of obvious slopes gives unsuspecting golfers the illusion that it’s simple to master.
