Golf Club Punta Ala is situated outside the prosperous seaside resort of the same name in southern Tuscany, where the fairways are laid on a promontory overlooking the island of Elba in the Tyrrhenian Sea. Simply put, it’s an absolutely beautiful spot to play golf.

This upmarket resort destination is largely frequented by wealthy people who own luxury second homes in the area and possibly have a boat moored in the marina. Sailing regattas are actually Punta Ala’s main claim to sporting fame but the golf facility is not without its admirers.

The course was literally carved out of a dense forest in the early 1960s when its eighteen playing corridors were designed by Giulio Cavalsani from a hilly, 150-acre property above the town. A gorge also cuts through the site and this natural feature is brought into play on several occasions during a round here.

Punta Alta is renowned as a tough track and its two most difficult holes arrive at the 390-metre 8th, which plays steadily uphill from tee to green, and the 428-metre 12th, a long par four that doglegs right and slightly downhill to a sand-protected green. Any golfer marking a net 4 on the scorecard at both these holes will be well pleased with their efforts.
