Recognised as one of Europe's best golf courses, the exceptionally scenic 18-hole Spérone really does have something special to offer. Regularly in the top 100 of Golf World's best it is definitely well worth the trip! As a Robert Trent Jones design (although his European partner Cabell Robinson did the actual work) the course combines 12 inland holes with gorse and heather, with six stunning holes along the coast and seaside cliffs.
As soon as you tee off you can enjoy sublime views of the glittering Mediterranean, the Lavezzi Islands and even the distant peaks of Sardinia. Sperone is a test for the best golfers - the fairways are wide, but the challenge arises on this hilly course when playing off the back or when the wind blows. To score well you will need to have every shot in your bag. If your handicap is not yet single figures, the course owners suggest that you play off the forward tees and simply admire the design and scenery.
Golf lessons are available, equipment can be rented and the Spérone hilltop clubhouse is also reputed for being a great pre or post game treat.
Although Corsica has no other 18-hole golf courses there are 9-hole golf courses, and Golf de Sperone can be perfectly combined with another Robert Trent Jones Sr masterpiece at the Pevero Golf Club in Sardinia. Situated on the Costa Smeralda, at the northern tip of the island, Pevero is a short ferry crossing across the Bonifacio Strait which separates Corsica from Sardinia.
A handicap certificate is required to play at Golf de Sperone.
