    About the course

    The course is located inside Fattoria di Pietrabuona premises. See details from here: http://www.pietrabuona.com/en/info-e-recapiti/where-we-are/

    Fattoria di Pietrabuona had nine hole course which was expanded to 19 holes during 2019 for the first NBDG Tuscany Open. The 19 hole course is now permanent and in use all year round.

    Here is what the course looks by numbers and preliminary course map.

    Amateur nine - Short and easy holes. Take your birdies here and avoid bogeys. You need your best technical shots, a bit of luck and a good putt to make the best.

    Hole, lenght, par, elevation (estimated)
    1. 54m par 3 0m
    2. 55m par 3 0m
    3. 65m par 3 0m
    4. 63m par 3 0m

    7. 54m par 3 +1m
    8. 45m par 3 +7m
    9. 50m par 3 +8m

    Professional ten - on the top of the mountain, things get tricky. Longer and tighter holes. A lot of elevation, both up and down. Birdies are good but especially try to dodge bogeys.
