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.
