Golfers wanting to give their waterproofs a break over the coming months can enjoy fantastic sunshine golf break at Sicily’s luxurious Donnafugata resort.

Alternatively, a seven-night package with five rounds of golf and five driving range tokens is available for €990 per person, including breakfast, three dinners, two lunches and two entries to the spa.

Not only do the autumn golf packages give guests the chance to enjoy some late-season fairway sunshine but they also provide the perfect opportunity for golfer to tackle two of Sicily’s finest golf courses.
The Gary Player-designed Parkland Course hosted the European Tour’s Sicilian Open last year, won by Frenchman Raphael Jacquelin.The course wanders through carob and olive trees, blending seamlessly with its environment and also features a bit of history, too, with a sixth century Greek necropolis next to the sixth tee and an archaeological site by the 18th.
The Links Course, which runs up and down two valleys, offers a pleasant contrast, nestling between two nature reserves with the Mediterranean as a backdrop and this setting, along with wetland areas and numerous lakes, makes the course a haven for migrating birds and other wildlife.
Donnafugata Golf Resort & Spa lies near to the town ofRagusa, the cradle of Sicilian Baroque architecture, with its neighbouring towns listed among the pearls of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Modica, Scicli and Noto.
As well as two 18-hole championship golf courses, the resort offers a spa and wellness centre, swimming pools and three restaurants and is the ideal destination for a holiday focused on sport and relaxation in a truly exclusive setting.
