Tuscany’s Argentario Golf & Wellness Resort, home to the PGA National Italy, will be on show at IGTM this from October 17 to 20 alongside fellow PGA National Properties on The PGA Branded Properties stand at La Nuvola in the nearby host city of Rome.
Located on the Monte Argentario promontory in the Maremma region of south west Tuscany just 90 minutes from the Eternal City, Argentario is looking forward to meeting with the golf travel operators at the exhibition to talk about its recent name change, its improved practice facilities and its ideal location for anyone attending next year’s Ryder Cup or planning a trip to the golf course before or after the matches.
Recognised as one of Italy’s most luxurious golf properties, the Resort was rebranded earlier in the year to the Argentario Golf & Wellness Resort to reflect more accurately the importance the Resort places on the wellbeing, both mental and physical, of its guests. Meanwhile as part of The PGA Branded Properties elite group of iconic golf properties, Argentario is keen to showcase its excellent PGA National Golf Course, Trackman equipped practice facilities and club fitting services.
In addition, for any tour operators offering Ryder Cup packages or golf tours to the Marco Simone Golf Club, host of the Ryder Cup matches in September 29 to October 1, 2023, the Resort is a great base from which to play the Marco Simone layout and a number of other courses in the region as well of course, the PGA National Italy championship course at Argentario.
“With Italy as the host of this year’s IGTM in Rome, we will be proudly representing our country as well as our wonderful golfing destination. On the PGA Branded Properties stand, we will be in the company of a collection of exceptional PGA National resorts that will no doubt attract a great deal of interest from the golf travel professionals attending the expo which is an annual highlight for golf travel trade,” says Ottavio Coppola, Golf Manager at the Argentario Golf & Wellness Resort, who will be representing the property at IGTM.
“We look forward to speaking to as many attendees as possible and informing them about our exceptional Resort with its wonderful golf course and on-site services and facilities which are the perfect combination of ingredients for an enjoyable, relaxing and memorable golf holiday in Tuscany.”
Argentario will be exhibiting alongside the PGA Nationals of Cyprus (Aphrodite Hills), Czech Republic (The Oaks), England (The Belfry), Ireland (Slieve Russell), Poland (Modry Las), Scotland (Gleneagles) and Turkey (Antalya), as well as additional PGA Branded Properties Carden Park Resort and Vipingo Ridge on the PGA Branded Properties stand. The PGA only works with one property per country as a PGA National and each PGA National must offer some of the very best golf, accommodation and leisure facilities available.
Set on the Monte Argentario promontory, the Resort is home to a course that meanders through cork-oak woods and olive groves and boasts incredible panoramas over the Orbetello Lagoon and Tyrrhenian Sea. The eco-friendly layout has been awarded ‘BioAgriCert’ and is a GEO-certified course that participates in an ‘on course’ programme to continuously improve sustainability.
The hotel itself combines drama, design, style and comfort; a majestic entrance, an imposing central stairway and gigantic windows are in stark contrast to the intense blue Tuscan sky and Mediterranean landscapes whilst the 73 rooms and suites offer sleek, modern interiors that are beautifully appointed, all with private decked terraces. The Resort also offers accommodation in its Argentario Golf Villas which are bespoke luxury villas boasting ground-breaking design and stunning views of the lagoon, sea and golf course that blend seamlessly into the landscape.
Meanwhile an extensive spa, wellness centre and two swimming pools (one outdoor and one indoor) alongside two tennis courts, two padel courts, a mini football pitch, an outdoor fitness station and a series of running trails means that there is something for everyone.
The elegant Dama Dama Restaurant offers fine dining cuisine prepared from locally-sourced produce whilst the Club House Restaurant is all about appetizing, healthy Tuscan specialities.
Argentario is easily accessed from Rome Fiumicino Airport by car in just 90 minutes whilst Rome Ciampino and Pisa are just over two hours away.
