Arriving in Puglia, the golfer is fascinated and has the opportunity to combine sports to discover the “world” of Puglia, opening a window on the artistic-cultural events closely related to the history of the Region.
The many dominations, from ancient times to the modern age, have left tangible signs that even today it is easy to read both in the cities and in the countryside.
