Golf Club Ugolino

It was 1889 when the English colony of Florence established the Florence Golf Club, the first italian association of golf.

The field, located in the Cascine area, hosted the first Italian national championships in 1905, and immediately after the First World War it moved to the area of ​​the current Florence airport, to Osmannoro, where the number of players increased rapidly.

The idea of ​​creating a new path began to take shape in the late twenties and early thirties of the last century.

The impetus for the construction of the new field came above all from the Autonomous Company of Tourism which considered golf a great tourist attraction, and had placed throughout Italy a series of signs dedicated to the city of Florence that simply announced “Florence: golf 18 holes “.

The Ugolino was founded in 1933 in Via Chiantigiana, designed by the English architects Blandford and Gannon (the same ones who designed the Monza camp), who created a par 69 course, but challenging for the differences for the difference in height and obstacles represented by trees and small greens.

In the ‘60s, the route was expanded to par 72 by the engineer Piero Mancinelli.

The creation of the Club-House and the swimming pool was entrusted to the architect Gherardo Bosio who succeeded in designing a structure that is still perfectly usable and “functioning”, which represents one of the most beautiful examples of rationalist architecture and  it was placed under the protection of Fine Arts.

The Ugolino is an essential part of the history of Italian golf: on its way, along the Chiantigiana road, countless races and many national championships have been hosted and there are many players of national and international stature who have ventured into it.

The Ugolino medal collection is one of the most important and glorious among the Italian clubs and it is impossible to mention all the players who contributed to these success.

The Ugolino was also home to numerous International Open and the most striking memory was the dispute of the International Open of Italy in 1983 which was won by Bernard Langer after an exciting play-off with Severiano Ballesteros and Ken Brown, at the end of a race that also saw Greg Norman, Mark James, Costantino Rocca, Baldovino Dassù, and many other stars of the European Tour.

Golf Club Montelupo

The Par 5 hole 7/16 has been designed to arrive in greens in two long and precise strokes. The fairway is undermined by five bunkers along the right side, then it takes a direction to the right to reach a green defended by three other bunkers.

These holes, very lively in their composition, will undoubtedly stimulate the needs of many golfers.
