Is Arenas Golf & Country Club is home to a well-rated and always popular golf course. This tree-lined parkland layout should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.
The number of European golf projects that American architect Robert von Hagge has been involved in is now in double figures and Is Arenas (although one of his newer layouts) is regarded as one of the best – and that’s saying something as they are all of a very high standard indeed!
Opened at the start of the new millennium, the course is situated near the west coast of Sardinia, between the magnificent Robert Trent Jones Pevero course to the north of the island and the wonderful Is Molas 18-hole layout on the south coast.
The 6,960-yard Is Arenas course has juniper and pine trees framing every hole as it winds its way intuitively over a gently undulating, sandy-soiled, landscape. The signature hole is the long, downhill, par four 17th which doglegs left to a green that is heavily protected by bunkers short right and long left of the putting surface.
