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.

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.
