Rome is the city that everybody visits for its history, arts, climate and food; few Rome’s visitors come to the Eternal City willing to play Golf although that can be seen as a mistake. Why? There are more than 15 Golf Clubs in and around Rome, many of them easily reachable by car and few of them by bus, too.
