La marina di Cala Galera, stands where once there was a fascinating natural bay. Now it is a modern marina with luxury yachts and sailboats, shops, bars and restaurants. The harbor is home to more than 700 boats and is a reference point for the private cruise to Sardinia, Corsica and the Tuscan Archipelago.

The golf course is located in a protected natural area, 5 minutes from Riserva Naturale Duna Feniglia e a 25 km dal Park of Maremma. La Laguna di Orbetello, the sea and the slopes of Monte Argentario offer a panorama of extraordinary beauty and create a microclimate that allows you to play golf all year round.

LArgentario Golf Club, that hosts several golf tournaments among the most important in Tuscany and Italy, features 18 panoramic holes for a total of 6.218 meters with par 71. The course is certified Agri Cert eco bio-compatible and all products used for its maintenance are totally natural. The LArgentario Golf Academy, in addition to a staff of professional teachers of golf, boasts the simulator TrackMan IIIe, a system of the latest generation for the analysis of the swing.

The 18 holes field and the driving range, opened in 2006, were made by architect David Mezzacane and professional player Baldovino Dass, one of Italys best golf players. The holes were then modeled by a specialist Brian Jorgensen: the result is a path varied, spectacular, and technically valid.
