Best In Region Golf Courses
Situated to the south of Corsica in the Mediterranean Sea, Sardinia extends to an area of over 9,000 square miles though, with just over one and a half million people resident on the island, it’s one of the least densely populated regions of Italy. Sardinia has been ruled from Rome for most of the last two thousand years but many forget that it endured a lengthy spell of Spanish control which (starting in 1323) lasted for almost four hundred years. There are around a dozen golf facilities in Sardinia, varying from pitch and putt courses at Borgo Campagna and Chia to the 27-hole golf complex at Is Molas. Visiting golfers will find enjoyable 9-hole holiday golf courses at Alghero, Puntaldia and Sa Tanca but for those seeking a greater golfing challenge, then Tanka – a 2007 design from Luigi Rota Caremoli – might just fit the bill. Three Sardinian courses are well worth their national ranking. The first two, Pevero in Porto Cervo and Is Molas (Championship) in Santa Margherita du Pula are 1970s designs from Robert Trent Jones Snr. and Piero Mancinelli, respectively. The third course, Is Arenas, is of more recent vintage, having had its fairways literally carved out of a pine forest close to Narbolia by Robert von Hagge in 2000.

Birding in Sardinia
After a few hours in Sardinia it’s not hard to see why it is becoming increasingly popular with British birders. This Italian island – the second largest in the Mediterranean, has an abundance of species you just don’t see in the UK and they’re not difficult to find. We flew into Alghero, on the west coast, and set up base in the Bosa area, only 40 minutes from the airport and home to Sardinia’s two remaining colonies of Griffon Vultures. Finding the vulture colony is as easy as falling off a log, as just outside Bosa on the coast road is a pizzeria conveniently called the Grifone, even more conveniently there is a large layby just opposite where you can park up and scan the cliffs behind. We managed to get four birds soaring above as we pulled up.

The secret to cheap(ish) Sardinia
Picture the Aga Khan, anchored between Corsica and Sardinia in his luxury yacht. He stands on deck, beguiled by the emerald waters that would give the Costa Smeralda its name and thinks: “Here is where I will build my resort.” Thusly; tourism to Sardinia was born. Prince Karim Al Husseini, Imam of the world’s Ismailiti Muslims and a descendant of the prophet Mohammed, led an investment consortium here in the late 1950s, bringing luxury to the northerly tip of the island. Successive generations of celebrities followed – the haves and have-yachts – equally charmed by its pink granite coast and clear turquoise waters.
