Having already won many awards, including “Condé Nast Traveller”’s “Best Golf Club” award and having played host to numerous international professional tournaments, UNA Poggio dei Medici Golf Club in Scarperia in the Mugello region has now won two more important accolades at the “World Golf Awards” as “Italy’s Best Golf Course 2017” and “Italy’s Best Golf Hotel 2017”.
The World Golf Awards reward excellence in golf tourism, in golf courses and in the destinations where this sport is played. The winners were chosen by tourism and golf professionals, including travel buyers, tour operators, journalists and managers, with the help of votes from golf tourists from around the globe via the awards programme website. UNA Poggio dei Medici Golf Club beat fourteen of the most prestigious golf courses in Italy, proving to be the best in its field and primed to host important high-level international tournaments, and it received the awards last Saturday at the gala ceremony held in Spain at the Manga Club near Murcia.
Set in Tuscany’s enchanting hills, Una Poggio de’ Medici offers accommodation in elegant refurbished farmhouses around the 18-hole regulation golf course.
Guests can enjoy the large swimming pools with jacuzzi and a panoramic view over the countryside surroundings, a fitness room, Turkish bath, and treatments and massages.
“We are very proud to have received these prestigious awards, less than a year after becoming part of UNA Hotels & Resorts,” said Fabrizio Gaggio, General Manager of Atahotels and UNA Hotels and Resorts. “I would like to sincerely thank all our guests for having believed in us and all my colleagues for the commitment they have shown in accomplishing this initial important achievement.”
