Acaya Golf Club

You will find the Acaya Golf Club south or our two Puglia holiday villas, and east of Lecce. Located close to the fortified town of Acaya the Golf Club is 30 to 40 minutes drive from our villas.  The resort is set in the midst of olive groves and the natural scrub vegetation typical to Mediterranean coastal regions.

The club offers an 18 hole, 71 par course that is just over 6000 metres long. It was described by Nick Trend, writing for the Telegraph as

most welcoming of the five Puglia options, with open fairways and receptive greens. It’s a good choice for golfers of more moderate ability, though it still presents a challenge off the back tees.

  • Open every day from 1 April to 31 October. Closed on Mondays from 1 November to 31 March (except for public holidays).
