Italian magazine Il Mondo del Golf has voted Le Madonie in Sicily the best new course in Italy.

The course overlooks the Tyrrhenean sea on one side and the national reserve of the Madonie Hills on the other. Architect Luigi Rota Caremoli, who also designed the Picciolo golf course in Sicily, oversaw the successful transplanting of about a thousand ancient olive, carob and citrus trees.More than 2,000 almond trees, 3,000 flower and berry evergreens, and countless aromatic plants such as lavender, myrtle, thyme, laurel, jasmine and verbena were planted.

The awards were presented at a recent gala dinner at Golf Villa d'Este in Como.
