Argentario becomes the PGA National Italy
Argentario Golf Club is the PGA National Italy and is the only PGA licensed golf facility in Italy. The Professional Golfers Association has chosen the Tuscan venue as the Italian national base for the next ten years.
As the PGA National Italy, Argentario Resort now sits alongside other world class PGA National properties which include The Belfry in England, Gleneagles in Scotland, Aphrodite Hills in Cyprus and at Antalya Golf Club in Turkey.
The golf course, inaugurated in 2006, was designed by architect David Mezzacane and by Baldovino Dassù, professional player, a symbol of Italian golf in the world. The holes were then shaped by the specialist Brian Jorgensen, resulting in a varied, spectacular and technically very challenging track that has attracted PGA’s interest that subsequently assigned the title of PGA National Golf Course Italy.
In this context Argentario Golf Club has created the new Club House, is expanding the Practice Area and is creating a new Golf Academy. The Argentario Golf Club will host the UK final of the SkyCaddie PGA Pro-Captain Challenge for the next 4 years, the first final will be played from the 26th to 31st of October 2019.
The agreement was signed by Liam Greasley – Executive Director – Commercial of The PGA, and the President of the Argentario Golf Club Augusto Orsini at The PGA headquarters in Birmingham on the 4th of March 2019.
The PGA is an association that supports, with values and integrity, the development of its programs, as well as being a global brand, immediately recognizable to all golfers in the world, who see in this brand, prestige, game, teaching and professionalism.
The Argentario Golf Club will represent Italy in the world of golf, combining PGA’s values with its own; respect for the environment, bio sustainability, offering a 5-star Resort, restaurants, wellness center with gym, swimming pools, tennis, paddle and soccer courts. In addition to all this, the new villas, surrounded by greenery, with a view of the golf course and the sea.
The Argentario Golf Club, located in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, near Rome, Florence, Pisa, Siena, and The PGA, ratify this agreement with the common objective of increasing the passion for the game of golf and its values .
