Pevero Golf Club

The Pevero, in the sparkling panorama of the Costa Smeralda, fits like a gem in its own right, set in the right place by landscape wizard Robert Tren Jones. The course of play, surrounded by rock formations, natural ponds and the Mediterranean smells of juniper, myrtle and strawberry trees, making this a magnificent, magical place, a stone’s throw from the villa

According to experts, it is one of the most breathtaking golf courses in the world due to its striking panorama. The 18-hole course which stretches for 6,107 m and has a par 72, is considered an extremely difficult field for its obstacles that challenge even the best golfers, so it requires a lot of concentration and a lot of gaming experience.
