VERDURA LAUNCHES VIP ROCCO FORTE OPEN PACKAGE
The 2018 Rocco Forte Open takes place at Sicily’s Verdura Resort from May 10-13, and there is an array of VIP packages available for visiting golfers – including the chance to tee it up alongside the continent’s best players.
The ‘Rocco Forte Open Experience’ packages start from €361 per person, per night, and feature a host of five-star privileges, including the opportunity to play the special composite course being used for the tournament – either by participating in the Rocco Forte Open Pro-Am, alongside Europe’s top stars, or playing the course just 24 hours after the professionals on May 14.
Available to book on a minimum two or three-night stay between May 9-15, the breaks also offer access to the resort’s private Torre Bar lounge area, with champagne reception and unlimited buffet and many other golf benefits.
Daily bed-and-breakfast accommodation is provided in a deluxe room, including a free bottle of Prosecco, while the packages also feature free entry to Verdura’s spa facilities.
The tournament will be staged on a composite course combining the best holes from the venue’s two 18-hole championship courses, the East and West.
Measuring 7,352 yards, the par-72 lay-out comprises nine holes from each of the two Kyle Phillips-designed layouts, with the final six holes running adjacent to the coast and set against the backdrop of the Mediterranean Sea.
Verdura’s golf offering also includes a nine-hole, par-three layout, a double-ended driving range, and an academy.
Guests can also make use of numerous other sports and leisure facilities, including six tennis courts, a 170sqm fully-equipped gym, and a 4,000sqm spa complex with thalassotherapy pools.
Situated on Sicily’s southern coast, between Agrigento and the fishing city of Sciacca, Verdura features 203 rooms and suites, all with a sea view, as well as three new villas, which are ideal for family holidays, each with its own private swimming pool.
