Sicilian Open 2012 Comes to Verdura Golf & Spa Resort

From 29th March to 1st April 2012, Verdura Golf & Spa Resort will host the prestigious Sicilian Open 2012. As part of the PGA European Tour, the resort’s championship links will welcome the defending champion Raphael Jacquelin along with 143 other professional players who will compete for the honour of becoming the Sicilian Open champion, winning both coveted Ryder Cup points and points towards the “Race to Dubai ” cash prize.

The 45 holes at Verdura are made up of two 18-hole, links-style golf courses and one 9-hole par 3 golf course, all designed by leading golf architect Kyle Phillips, who has earned a reputation for developing design solutions that work in close harmony with the landscape. Sir Rocco Forte, a keen sportsman with a lifelong passion for golf, entrusted Phillips with the project of creating links-style golf courses in an area that is totally different from the Scottish coast in both temperature and landscape. Embracing the challenge with great enthusiasm, Phillips created superb links.

Verdura Golf & Spa Resort will provide a unique golf experience for both players and spectators alike. The latter, whether resident or not resident guests will enjoy free unlimited access to watch the 4 day Golf tournament. The courses, featuring undulating fairways and deep bunkers, are set amid olive and orange groves, and despite both tracks being built to the same standard and occupying similar ground, the East and West courses provide different journeys and game experiences for golfers to enjoy.

Challenging golf courses with outstanding views, pleasant temperatures and gentle sea breezes from the south -west Sicilian coast make the Verdura Golf & Spa Resort a unique location for the Sicilian Open 2012.
