Play golf under the Tuscan sun while you also learn about the diverse fauna of the Maremma in southern Tuscany. There are a number of animals that you can admire while playing at the Argentario Golf Club, which is located in a protected area only 5 minutes away from the Duna Feniglia Nature Reserve and from the WWF-managed Orbetello Lagoon.
While you explore the 18-hole golf course, whether you are golfing or simply hiking through the jogging trails, you will find informative signs with a photo and a description of the local fauna (bilingual texts in Italian and English). This nature path is a great way for tourists and even for local Italian players to learn about the Maremma bio-diversity.
The Argentario Golf Club has been awarded the “Bio Agri Cert” certification for its bio eco-compatibility; in fact, all products used for its maintenance are completely natural. The surroundings are simply stunning: the Orbetello Lagoon, the sea and the hillside offer a beautiful panorama and create a microclimate that allows golf to be played at any time of the year.
Among the animals that can be found in and around the golf course and the protected area that surrounds it, there are: wild boars, foxes, a variety of frogs, green lizards, Hermann’s tortoises, crested porcupines, red squirrels, hares, fallow deer, different bird species likethe little egret and the long-eared owl.
