Danilo Discacciati started operating in the tourist business back to 1984 and since the beginning he made a great choice, difficult for that time: specialize in customizing packages having as a theme something different from what the other tour operators offered in that period (i.e.: the Rome-Florence-Venice packages) and he started his challenge from the United States because sure the Americans were ready to appreciate this something different.
And the results were great since then: wine, food, culinary experience, Jewish heritage, II World War sites and, of course, GOLF!
He was immediately invited by the Italian National Tourist Board of New York, Chicago and Los Angeles to hold seminars and meeting to the American golf operators who came and listened to what Danilo presented.
Some were skeptical, others smiled at the fact that in Italy you could play golf. But an unexpected thing happened: some of the best American golf tour operators were very interested and immediately agreed to collaborate with Danilo asking to prepare tailormade packages for their clients.
From then on, dozens and dozens have been the operators, and still are, who rely on Danilo and his super team for their customers' trips to Italy.
Why this success? Because the preparation and the knowledge GOLF IN ITALY has of Italy is unique, result of the continuous travels around Italy at the discovery of new things to insert and combine with golf because Danilo is aware that golf in Italy cannot compete with that of the British Isles or of the Iberian Peninsula, but it is equally aware that, now as never before, the golfers who visit Italy comes above all for what this country can offer different from golf, and believe us, there is really so much to do, visit, experience that the day passes in an enchanting way.
Back in 1984, we had our problems in convincing golf operators to consider our country as a possible destination or a golf vacation for their clients!
Nowadays, things are different, and Italy appears more and more frequently in the catalogues of the major golf operators in the world and we like to imagine that, if this is happening now, it's also because we have rightfully believed in our product, and in our Territory.
But, despite the proliferation of agencies that have started selling golf packages under the impetus of the upcoming Ryder Cup in Rome in 2023, we still remain unique because our tours and our proposals are not limited only to putting together the resort and the green fee, but to spreading what is beautiful in Italy and that deserves to be lived, seen, experienced: this is the only key to promote Golf in Italy.
And we have this expertise!
If we sell a service, it is because it has first been thoroughly tested by our team. Golf in Italy was born first of all from the desire to transform a passion into work: this is our most important added value.

I have been travelling with Golf In Italy every two years since 2011 and I have visited many regions in Italy with them.

I’m writing this comment from the plane flying back to Adelaide, after having spent three fabulous weeks with my group of friends, to thank you and your staff for the wonderful work you did!
Already when I met Danilo in Adelaide few years ago, in a meeting organised by an Italian Association with the intention to promote golf in Italy, I was struck by the professionalism with which he presented the final golf product, without ever talking about golf, if not to the end: this is what fascinated me most of all because I imagined myself joining this golf holiday and having any part of the day doing something different and if it happened, I could even play golf!
And then I thought: if I have to plan a vacation of my life, it will surely be Italy and after two years I decided.
I talked about it in my club, we decided that, given the long journey we could afford to stay on vacation for three weeks and try with Italy.
Your proposal was exceptional right from the start because, in addition to being able to prepare a tour from Rome to Milan including all the beautiful things your country has to offer, you also managed to stay within the budget we had set.
You have been very good and present every day of our stay and, for people coming from Australia, this point is very. Important because we have felt safe and good hands!
So far, I have tried other operators but, putting together a trip made up of hotels and golf, I am not saying that anyone is able to do it, but I certainly challenge golf operators all over the world to do what you have done for us.
I hope there is a next time because the desire to return to Italy is great.
Thanks again for everything
I met Danilo at the PGA in Orlando at his stand: I started asking some questions about golfing in Italy and we spoke for more than one hour because I was curious to know if Italy could be a destination for our group of golfers. And he spoke to me in such a professional way, answering my questions in any detail that, at the end, the decision was taken: I would have told my mates about going to Italy to play golf because it was an experience that would surely have left its mark on us, and now, after having visited Tuscany for the first time and Lake Como for the second time, we are preparing our third adventure and we chose Rome because we want to try the 2023 Ryder Cup course at Marco Simone.
What surprised me is the capacity to find solutions to my suggestions. They never say no to my requests but they analize, they try to understand what our group of friends wants to visit or to do and then, with discretion, they come with a perfect solution as if it were my idea.
Guys, our trip to Sardinia was simply PERFECT! Costa Smeralda was a paradise, your description of a European Caribbean was correct. The Cala di Volpe hotel was gorgeous and the golf we experienced was very high level. Both the courses we played were designed by Robert Trent Jones: the Pevero in Sardinia and the Sperone in Corsica (France) are two great courses and they deserve great respect and attention when playing them.
Besides, just the transfer to Corsica by the off-shore motorboat is a unique experience! I have never considered to reach a golf club in that way. It was really amazing! I regretted not having taken your suggestion to fly by helicopter to go and play the Tanka course in the south: it would have been a truly unique golf vacation. Next time I will!
Thanks again for the great service you provided me with.
Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini, Ducati and golf! My dreams came true thanks to you. I spent five ecstatic days in Emilia Romagna: playing early in the morning and then rush to visit in the afternoon the museum or the factory of those world famous brands. I was also able to rent and drive a Ferrari for one hour: it was a cherry on top of an unforgettable golf vacation!
Just back from Lake Maggiore and I must confess that I had really great golf: I was very surprised to find such great courses, in great condition and very well "manicured". One course I liked most: Castelconturbia, probably because I'm fond of the courses designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. The entire program was perfect and ran smoothly thanks to the schedule you have wisely prepared for us.
When we spoke the first time while looking for a destination in Italy good enough for a group of "avid golfers", you didn't have a moment of hesitation, your answer came immediately: "I got it: Lake Como is your place!" And the trust we placed in you was amply rewarded: in four days, we played seven different courses within 40-minute drive from our hotel downtown Como. Simply impressive: we are sure to have found a great golf destination which is worth visiting again in the future.
Great experience in Verona. For opera lovers, as my wife and me are, to find a place where to combine opera and golf has been simply fantastic. Every night, from Thursday to Sunday, a different opera, from Thursday to Sunday we played a different course. What to expect more from life? Thanks to you all to have organized The Perfect Golf & Opera Holiday: the schedule was perfect, the information provided were correct. We really hope to return again for another opera season
Thank you for such a wonderful trip. We thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations, golf arrangements and the itinerary. Also, your staff could not have been more welcoming or caring. Thanks again for a memorable trip.
I wanted to send you a note to express our deepest appreciation for this wonderful Italy experience. The trip could not be going any better. You’ve outdone yourself expertly managing all the details. The guys are grateful and appreciative. Thank you for such a memorable travel to Italy.
John and I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful trip you put together for us. The excursions were amazing, the boys said the golf courses were fabulous and your suggestions for things to do and restaurants were perfect. Thank you for arranging such a great trip.
