Poggio dei medici is a well established course in a beautiful location just north of Florence and easy to find due to excellent signposting.The course is very scenic,quite hilly and has fabulous views.The greens are USPGA and much better than all but the best courses in the UK.There is some water on the course but it doesnot really come into play making it good to play for all abilities.The hotel was not busy and they offered us an upgrade to a junior suite with sitting room en terrace.
it was large, nicely decorated,comfortable and very clean.The housekeeping lady was scrubbing the showercubicle on her knees.All the staff was very nice and helpful. breakfast was elaborate with fruits, juices and yoghurts,cheese,ham and salami and eggs can be ordered however you like them.As is common in italy there is a variety of cakes and croissants.
There is a restaurant and a spa with turkish bath which we did not try.The practice area is beautiful with many covered bays in a sunny spot with views over the whole course.
The nearby medieval town of Scarperia has nice restaurants of which we liked Anna Trend best,popular with locals.A short drive north is a large Outlet called Barberino which has Prada,Ralph Lauren,Cavalli you name it.Florence and Florence airport are nearby.
A super destination for a golfbreak.
