San Domenico | NCG Top 100s: European Golf Resorts

San Domenico Golf is located where the Puglian countryside meets the azure of the Adriatic Sea, perfectly nested between the slopes of the Itria valley and the touristic port of Savelletri.

One of Italy’s leading resorts, San Domenico is the home to a stunning 18-hole golf course, with the nearby Borgo Egnazia and Masseria San Domenico providing the accommodation for the resort. Both feature rooms and suites for all the family, as well as providing entertainment for the kids and parents, with spa treatments on offer.

The San Domenico Golf Course is a championship level track, designed by Andy Haggar. The Par 72 lay-out at San Domencio is almost 7,000 yards long, and has incredible views of the Adriatic Sea over the east coast of Italy. The course has been the proud host of the Italian PGA Championship and the European Challenge Tour Grand Final in the past, hosting the latter for eight successive years from 2005 to 2012. 

In terms of accommodation, the Borgo Egnazia sits over the road from the San Domenico Golf Course. This truly Puglian accommodation provides something for the entire family, from standard rooms to suites, and even entire buildings to rent out for the family during a stay, each having its own private courtyard and pool. Masseria San Domenico sits ten minutes from the golf course, and also provides stunning views and rooms.

Its biggest competition was the European Challenge Tour Grand Final, which called San Lorenzo home for an eight year stint between 2005 and 2012.
