Dana Fry designed the Acaya golf course

By Alice and Danny Scott

An offer we couldn’t refuse sent us to golf in Sicily and the southeast coast of Italy where Justin Timberlake and Jessica Beale were married at Borgo Egnazia.

They rented the whole property but you can secure a room or a villa for 14 people costing up to $60k beside the San Domenico Golf course – a challenging track along the Adriatic Sea. We stayed at the DoubleTree by Hilton Acaya Golf Resort, 45 minutes away, more understated but elegant under the nightlights with spacious accommodations. Dana Fry designed the property’s Acaya golf course, host of European Challenge Tour events, with excellent routing through natural vegetation.

Fly into Brindisi or Bari or take the high-speed train as we did; a five-hour hillside tour of vineyards, olive groves and the sea from café seats with snack service. Raileurope passes work with Tren Italia and throughout Europe. More
