A good set of clubs makes the world of difference to a player’s game. If you’re not travelling with your own, Acqua Santa rents out equipment. Reserve your sets before travelling – each golfer must play with their own set. Acqua Santa clubhouse also offers re-gripping service to ensure the best experience.
When playing on a beautiful course as the most ancient of Italy, it’s polite to maintain it. Take care of the course as you play, by replacing divots, repairing any pitch marks on the green and raking bunkers.
A drink and snack after a game always sounds good. Acqua Santa private clubhouse offers two options: Restaurant and Bar. The staff will be pleased to assist you during your time at the Golf Club. A Buvette is also present between hole 9 and 10.
Be a respectful player. For instance, don’t be the slowest player. You don’t want to hold up your teammates, or the groups behind you. If necessary, invite faster players to pass through. Secondly, control your emotions. Don’t lose your temper if a shot doesn’t go your way. Thirdly, it’s polite to be a silent partner and allow your fellow players to concentrate as they take their shots, so please silence your phone.
A golf cart is often the most comfortable way to get around the golf course, but driving it comes with rules. Stick to designated paths and fairways. Please do not leave traces, so avoid driving over wet areas that are already damaged.
