Puglia Golf Clubs
Puglia is an excellent place to enjoy a combination of good golf, good weather and good food and wine. As it has only been recently taken up the courses are new and not well known so generally so they are comparatively empty so generally pre booked tee-off time are not necessary and no holdups behind slower players, leaving you to play a round at your own leisure.
After a day playing golf there are plenty of ways to relax such as beaches, good restaurants, and sites to visit and explore.
