relaxed 9-holer in relaxed countryside
5 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Setting - situated in nice, lazy, quiet farmland outside of Florence.
Tees - made of wood, they were like sections of a fishing dock placed on the ground, basically. Most of them weren't long enough for a full approach, however.
Baskets - in good condition
Unique holes (well, two of them were unique) Hole #1 crossed a fenced in pond with a bunch of geese in it, so don't lose your disc in there! Hole #7 was a quite difficult shot over some olive trees and up an incline (I wouldn't exactly call it a hill).
Cons: Limited space, thus limited variety - most of the 9 holes were situated in a rectangular block of land, crisscrossing back and forth, so not a great deal of variety there
Signs - a couple of the signs seemed to be pointing the wrong direction and we had some trouble figuring out exactly which basket went with what hole. In addition, we couldn't find the location of hole #9 - although it did start storming and so we kind of gave up the search for it a little early.
Difficulty level low - there wasn't a great level of challenge on any of the holes, as many of them were quite short.
Other Thoughts: If you're going to play a course in Italy, and you're in this area (Florence, Lucca), definitely go to Pietrabuona, which is only an hour away from this course. Nearly everything about that course is better than this one.
You don't have to pay to play at Palma's even though it's a private agriturismo. Just e-mail the guy who runs the place before you go. He was more than happy to have us play. He wants to promote his place as much as possible, so anyone playing there helps.
