Sir Rocco Forte said: “It is a privilege to join the exclusive European Tour Properties network of clubs, identifying Verdura Resort as one of the premier golf destinations in Europe.
“Our two 18-hole links golf courses are designed by Kyle Phillips with sweeping views of the Mediterranean Sea from every hole.
“Our visitors include some of the most famous names in European golf and becoming a member is further confirmation of the great progress that Verdura has made in recent years in becoming one of the elite golf destinations on the continent.”
David MacLaren, Head of European Tour Properties, said: “Adding Verdura to our network is a great way to begin 2017 and we look forward to working with the resort team to both ensure that The Rocco Forte Open – Verdura is a great event and that our partnership is long and fruitful one.”
Verdura is the first new addition to the European Tour Properties network in 2017 following a successful 2016 in which six new resorts joined the portfolio, including fellow Italian venue Marco Simone Golf & Country Club, the host venue for The 2022 Ryder Cup.
