The Resort is the starting point to discover the beauties of the Baroque town of Lecce and the beaches of the Salento area.
The golf course and the facilities of the DoubleTree by Hilton Acaya Golf Resort are located a few kilometers away from Lecce, nested between the fortified stronghold of Acaya, built in 1535, only example of a fortified city in the South of Italy, and the Adriatic Sea, behind the natural oasis of the Cesine. The shaping of the golf course, following the restyling by the famous American Hurdzan – Fry Group, combines environmental beauty and technical commitment, where the variety of the course design stimulates players to attempt any kind of shot. Within a natural setting of rare beauty, embedded in the green Macchia Mediterranea (typical coastal Mediterranean landscape) with its precious wild vegetation, an incredible 18-hole par 71 course of 6192 meters stretches elegantly over the landscape that is hosting it.
The footprint of the American architect is unmistakable in the construction philosophy. As a matter of fact, he has also designed a few holes with huge farway and with pathway bunkers to protect the Macchia Mediterranea, where the first shot is almost never at risk, but made very interesting through small greens with great movements and defensive bunkers. The path configuration given by the Hurdzan – Fry Group allows clear visibility of all obstacles from each hole.
The facility also includes the new practice course with both covered and uncovered positions, pitching green, putting green, bunker’s.
A little further South, Otranto, with its crystal clear sea, is a tourist station that is open to international tourism.
Easily accessible from the airports of Brindisi and Bari, only 10 Km away from Lecce, the Acaya Golf Resort is the ideal destination for a vacation, where sport and relax meet in the heart of a natural setting. 1200 square meters of absolute wellness: the gift that Acaya offers to its guests, with the brand new beauty spa with the most sophisticated equipment for a perfect rejuvenation while staying at the hotel.
The weather of the Puglia Region, and that of the Salento area in particular, is suitable to play golf all year round.
