Situated on the old Tavola Farmhouse land, a remnant of the famous de Medici Estates, the green lung of Prato, the Le Pavoniere course is a challenging, but not punishing round of golf.
This area, with its luxuriant nurseries and intensive farming, has many water hazards as a result of the natural topography.
The Le Pavoniere course has been sensitively landscaped, and is surrounded by holm-oak woods, clusters of pine and, of course, the local flavor, Tuscan cypresses. Very long fairways and a range of four tee boxes for each hole are the features of the course.
The greens each measure about a thousand square metres and the undulating fairways are crafted around the natural lay of the land. One of the most difficult holes is the 18th, a dog-leg to the right of over 400m, you can reach the green in two ways: two safe strokes before the lake in front of the green or a long drive over the lake to the right of the tee, in order to reach the green more easily with the second stroke. Regardless of how you choose to finish of your round on this terrain, it makes for a fantastic end to an exceptional course.
